Recent findings: Chronic postsurgical pain is an important problem in children, however, with a lower prevalence than in adults. Summary: The literature on the topic is sparse. Prospective studies, including clinical examination, quantitative sensory testing, and long-term follow-up, are needed to increase our knowledge about the prevalence, risk factors, and underlying mechanisms. aDepartment of Anesthesiology and Danish Pain Research Center, Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus bDepartment of Anesthesiology, Horsens Regional Hospital, Horsens, Denmark Correspondence to Lone Nikolajsen, Danish Pain Research Center, Aarhus University Hospital, Norrebrogade 44, Building 1A, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark.
