Effects of RF infusion on the paw withdrawal threshold (PWT) in response to mechanical stimuli and the paw withdrawal latency (PWL) to thermal stimulation in rats. (a) PWT. (b) PWL. Note that RF infusion results in a significant mechanical allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia as measured by a decreased PWT and PWL in rats. , , or versus the corresponding vehicle group, two-way ANOVA followed by the Bonferroni post hoc test, vehicle and 13 RF.
