Chronic motor cortex stimulation for phantom limb pain: correlations between pain relief and functional imaging studies.

Abstract

Chronic motor cortex stimulation (CMCS) has provided satisfactory control of pain in patients with central or trigeminal neuropathic pain. We used this technique in 3 patients with intractable phantom limb pain after upper limb amputation. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) correlated to anatomical MRI permitted frameless image guidance for… (More)
