Dual lead spinal cord stimulation using octad lead for central post-stroke pain



Dual lead spinal cord stimulation using octad lead for central post-stroke pain



No Shinkei Geka. Neurological Surgery 40(4): 325-329



Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has become the preferred option for neurosurgical management of several intractable pains. To evaluate effects of dual lead SCS using two quad leads for central post-stroke pain (CPSP), we retrospectively reviewed eight consecutive patients with CPSP who underwent SCS. Six (75%) of eight patients obtained more than 50% pain relief during test stimulation, and the efficacies continued for about 12 months in five (83%) of six patients. There were no significant complications. SCS is less invasive neurostimulation treatment and provides pain relief for some cases of CPSP.
