OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the long-term efficacy and safety of paresthesia-free high-frequency spinal cord stimulation (HF10 SCS) for the treatment of chronic, intractable pain of the low back and legs. DESIGN Prospective, multicenter, observational study. METHOD Patients with significant chronic low back pain underwent(More)
AIM To assess potencies of tetrahydroprotoberberines (THPB) and hydrobenzyltetrahydroisoquinolines (HBTI) on DA receptors. METHODS The receptor binding assay with calf striatum to D1 and D2 receptors, and the animal behavior tests were used. RESULTS (+/-) 12-Chloroscoulerine (CSL) was the most potent one among the THPB and HBTI. The affinities of CSL to(More)
OBJECTIVE It is the purpose of this study to document our experience with the use of a 10-kHz high-frequency spinal cord stimulation (SCS) device for the relief of neuropathic pain of the upper and lower limbs. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective chart review was performed of all patients treated with the 10-kHz high-frequency SCS system for neuropathic(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic pain in children has been an under-recognized problem compared to adult pain. The aim of management is to help children and their families cope with the symptoms rather than a cure. Current medical treatments to reduce pain intensity are often short lived, poorly tolerated or ineffective. RESULTS The use of electrical stimulation to(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effectiveness of 10 kHz high frequency spinal cord stimulation (HF10 therapy) treatment of chronic low back pain in patients who have not had spinal surgery. METHODS Patients with chronic low back pain without prior spinal surgery were evaluated by a team of spine surgeons to rule out any spinal pathology amenable to surgical(More)
