Epidural motor cortex stimulation (MCS) could achieve good pain control in patients with drug-resistant chronic neurogenic pain. In the search for parameters associated with the favourable outcome of this surgical procedure, quantitative sensory testing was performed in a series of 31 patients treated by MCS for chronic pain. Non-nociceptive and nociceptive sensory thresholds were measured in the painful area and its contralateral homologous zone with the stimulator in 'off' and in 'on… CONTINUE READING
