What is the treatment of choice for chronic post-CABG pain? Evidence-Based Answer: No studies have been conducted to evaluate pain management for chronic pain after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), but extrapolating from other trials on postsurgical neuropathic pain reveals that amitriptyline, topical capsaicin, gabapentin, or pregabalin are reasonable options (SOR: C, extrapolated from RCTs and expert opinion).
