The wide range of etiologies underlying neuropathic pain render it a particularly challenging condition to manage.
Spinal cord stimulation using precision approach via 3D neural targeting shows superior efficacy in treating chronic axial low back pain compared with a traditional approach relying on a trial-and-error method to achieve desired paresthesia.
Spinal cord stimulation was found to help decrease or stabilize opioid use in patients with chronic pain.
Patients who received transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation during office-based hysteroscopy without sedation had less pain.
The addition of dexamethasone to ropivacaine for prolonged block duration produced highly variable results in healthy subjects.
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the right secondary somatosensory motor cortex produces relief from chronic neuropathic orofacial pain, independently of improvements in psychiatric or sleep disorder comorbidities.
The usefulness of sPNB is limited due to the short duration of action, while a major limitation of cPNB is the significant investment.
The Senza system reduced back pain an average of 5 points, compared to 3 points for traditional stimulation.
Paresthesia-free spinal cord stimulation (SCS) with 10-kHz high-frequency (HF10) therapy was superior to traditional SCS for long-term treatment of intractable back and leg pain.
Use of neurostimulation devices is associated with a number of drawbacks, including high costs and the potential for procedurally related complications such as lead migration and infection.
