OBJECTIVES Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a well-established modality for the treatment of chronic pain, and can utilize percutaneous or paddle leads. While percutaneous leads are less invasive, they have been shown to have higher lead migration rates. In this study, we compared the long-term outcomes and health-care costs associated with paddle and percutaneous lead implantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS We utilized the MarketScan data base to examine patients who underwent percutaneous or… CONTINUE READING
