IntroductionAlthough spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is widely used for chronic neuropathic pain after failed spinal surgery, little is known about the underlying physiological mechanisms. This study aims to investigate the neural substrate underlying short-term (30 s) SCS by means of functional magnetic resonance imaging in 20 patients with failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS).MethodsTwenty patients with FBSS, treated with externalized SCS, participated in a blocked functional magnetic resonance… CONTINUE READING
