Abstract

We investigated the short-term effects of an intrathecal bolus injection of baclofen on central pain due to stroke or spinal cord injury. Pain relief was obtained in 64% of the patients. The effects developed 1-2 hours after the injection and continued for 10-24 hours. Both spinal segmental and supraspinal mechanisms may be involved in the production of baclofen-analgesia.
