Epidural spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has gained a secure place in the armamentarium of the surgeon treating chronic pain conditions (1, 2). The complexity of the intraspinal structures and their different susceptibility to electrical signals, however, has made it difficult to characterize the effects of the stimulation, Some important recent work has helped shed light on the electrical properties of the intraspinal structures and on the electrical field potentials generated with epidural… CONTINUE READING
