This document addresses transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (PENS). Electrical stimulation is a method used to treat pain through electrodes placed on or just beneath the skin that send small electrical impulses to underlying sensory nerve fibers to modify pain perception.

Background. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) has been used extensively to control postoperative pain, but its effects are controversial.

This is probably due to the different types of operations performed and, therefore, to the varying intensity of postoperative pain.

Here we present an extensive study with TENS in patients who underwent different types of thoracic. Abstract. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is applied at high frequency (80– Hz) (also known as conventional TENS) aimed at activation of myelinated cutaneous sensory fibers or low-frequency stimulation (short trains of impulses at 1–4 Hz, known as acupuncture-like TENS) and aimed at activation of small-diameter nonnoxious muscle afferents and Aδ fibers.
