Intrathecal drug administration via implanted pump is an effective treatment for intractable pain and spasticity but can be compromised by catheter-related complications. To determine the etiology of catheter-related complications, we have conducted a multicenter, prospective study of the long-term performance of a one-piece catheter system. Data pertaining to catheter-related complications were collected at implant and at specified times during the follow-up period. Catheter implantation… CONTINUE READING
