Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is challenging to treat. Minimal invasive neurostimulation therapies, such as subcutaneous peripheral nerve field stimulation (SPNS), improve pain relief and quality of life. The goal of the present study was to assess the usefulness, safety, and efficacy of SPNS in patients with CLBP. Twenty-six consecutive patients with CLBP were prospectively included in the study. For trial neurostimulation, two electrodes were implanted vertically at a depth of 1 cm into the… CONTINUE READING
