Spinal cord stimulation versus conventional medical management for neuropathic pain: A multicentre randomised controlled trial in patients with failed back surgery syndrome
THE EFFECTS OF SPINAL CORD STIMULATION IN NEUROPATHIC PAIN ARE SUSTAINED: A 24‐MONTH FOLLOW‐UP OF THE PROSPECTIVE RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED MULTICENTER TRIAL OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SPINAL CORD…
At 24 months of SCS treatment, selected failed back surgery syndrome patients reported sustained pain relief, clinically important improvements in functional capacity and health-related quality of life, and satisfaction with treatment.
Quality of life, resource consumption and costs of spinal cord stimulation versus conventional medical management in neuropathic pain patients with failed back surgery syndrome (PROCESS trial)
Lipomatous, vascular, and chondromatous benign tumors of the peripheral nerves: representative cases and review of the literature.
The first reported case of a cartilaginous hamartoma infiltrating a peripheral nerve is reported, and preoperative embolization and postoperative radiotherapy were beneficial in the case presented here.
Demographic Characteristics of Patients with Severe Neuropathic Pain Secondary to Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
It is unclear how patients with predominantly neuropathic pain due to failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) compare with patients with other chronic pain conditions.
FUNCTIONAL OUTCOME OF BRACHIAL PLEXUS RECONSTRUCTION AFTER TRAUMA
Statistically validated tools can be used to evaluate the quality of life, upper extremity function, and pain after brachial plexus repairs and correlated negatively with functional outcomes.
Spinal Cord Stimulation vs. Conventional Medical Management: A Prospective, Randomized, Controlled, Multicenter Study of Patients with Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (PROCESS Study)
The PROCESS randomized, controlled, multicenter trial aims to assess the clinical effectiveness and cost‐effectiveness of SCS when added to conventional medical management compared to conventionalmedical management alone in patients with FBSS.
An Algorithmic Programming Approach for Back Pain Symptoms in Failed Back Surgery Syndrome Using Spinal Cord Stimulation with a Multicolumn Surgically Implanted Epidural Lead: A Multicenter…
The objective of the present international multicentre study is to prospectively evaluate the findings of recent clinical trials suggesting that multicolumn surgically implanted leads combined with enhanced programming capabilities in the newer implantable pulse generators demonstrate the ability to treat the back pain component of FBSS.
Recurrent Spontaneous Spinal Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak Associated with “Nude Nerve Root” Syndrome: Case Report
A recurrent spontaneous spinalCSF leak may occur in patients with intracranial hypotension at a site previously documented not to be associated with a CSF leak.
