Spinal cord stimulators (SCS) are implantable medical devices used to treat chronic pain of neurologic origin, such as sciatica, intractable back pain, and diabetic. The device generates an electric pulse near the spinal cord's dorsal surface, providing a parasthesia sensation that alters the perception of pain by the patient, and is typically used in conjunction with conventional medical management.

Spinal cord stimulation is a neuromodulation therapy for the treatment of chronic, intractable, neuropathic pain. It involves the implantation of electrodes over the dorsal columns of the spinal cord, in order to activate the dorsal column-medial lemniscal sensory system, thus closing the gate on pain transmission. This therapy is used in patients with neuropathic pain conditions such as post-laminectomy syndrome, spinal arachnoiditis, lumbar radiculitis, and complex regional pain syndrome. Spinal Cord Stimulation: Principles and Practice is written by experts in the field, with a multidisciplinary approach to the chronic pain patient in mind. There are chapters describing the history of this therapy, and the fundamentals of indications and patient selection. The psychological considerations of spinal cord stimulation are described, and there are chapters describing various trialing/implanting techniques, with an emphasis on patient outcomes and complication avoidance. Finally, chapters on spinal cord stimulator programming and emerging indications round out the volume. Spinal Cord Stimulation: Principles and Practice is a valuable resource for clinicians to help direct decision-making when treating patients with chronic pain. Patients and their caretakers will also find value in this book as a guide through the spinal cord stimulation candidacy and implantation process. The authors hope this book serves to improve the care of chronic pain patients while providing a beacon of hope to patients, their caretakers, and medical providers.

Among neuromodulation procedures, electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves (PNS) is probably the most underappreciated modality. Although PNS is used for all kinds of medical conditions, ranging from chronic neuropathic pain and headache to epilepsy, depression, hypertension and heart failure, its importance is frequently overshadowed by spinal cord stimulation and deep brain stimulation. While the earlier version of this book dealt exclusively with various pain syndromes, this new volume covers the entire spectrum of PNS applications. Written by recognized authorities in their respective fields, the chapters of this title describe the use of PNS in the management of neurological, psychiatric, otorhinolaryngological, cardiovascular, pulmonary, colorectal and genitourinary disorders. To reflect the complexity of the regulatory process, the book ends with a special chapter dedicated to the current state of approval of different PNS devices. This book will be of great value to all those who deal with neuromodulation, including clinicians who select PNS candidates, surgeons and other specialists who implant PNS devices, and researchers and engineers who work on making the stimulators safer and more effective.
