Spinal cord stimulation versus conventional medical management for neuropathic pain: A multicentre randomised controlled trial in patients with failed back surgery syndrome
Abstract Patients with neuropathic pain secondary to failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) typically experience persistent pain, disability, and reduced quality of life. We hypothesised that spinalExpand
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
OBJECTIVEAfter randomizing 100 failed back surgery syndrome patients to receive spinal cord stimulation (SCS) plus conventional medical management (CMM) or CMM alone, the results of the 6-monthExpand
Lipomatous, vascular, and chondromatous benign tumors of the peripheral nerves: representative cases and review of the literature.
Benign peripheral nerve lesions of lipomatous, vascular, and chondromatous origin are very rare. Only one previous case of brachial plexus involvement by such a tumor has been reported. The authorsExpand
FUNCTIONAL OUTCOME OF BRACHIAL PLEXUS RECONSTRUCTION AFTER TRAUMA
OBJECTIVETraumatic brachial plexopathies can be devastating injuries. In addition to motor and sensory deficits, pain and functional limitations can be equally debilitating. We sought to evaluateExpand
Demographic Characteristics of Patients with Severe Neuropathic Pain Secondary to Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
Background:  Neuropathic pain commonly affects the back and legs and is associated with severe disability and psychological illness. It is unclear how patients with predominantly neuropathic pain dueExpand
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)
Background: Chronic back and leg pain conditions result in patients’ loss of function, reduced quality of life and increased costs to the society.
Spinal Cord Stimulation vs. Conventional Medical Management: A Prospective, Randomized, Controlled, Multicenter Study of Patients with Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (PROCESS Study)
Introduction.  Since its first application in 1967, numerous case series indicate that spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is an effective treatment for the management of failed back surgery syndromeExpand
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
Many studies have demonstrated the efficacy and the medical/economic value of epidural spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of “failed back surgery syndrome” (FBSS). However, the back painExpand
Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome: current diagnostic criteria and advances in MRI diagnostics.
Neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (nTOS) is caused by compression of the brachial plexus as it traverses from the thoracic outlet to the axilla. Diagnosing nTOS can be difficult because of overlapExpand
Recurrent Spontaneous Spinal Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak Associated with “Nude Nerve Root” Syndrome: Case Report
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCESpontaneous spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks have been noted occasionally at multiple sites in the same patient, but recurrent spontaneous spinal CSF leaks have not beenExpand
