OBJECTIVE This study was designed to assess whether using pulse dosing (PD: regularly-cycled intermittent stimulation) of high-frequency 10 kHz spinal cord stimulation (10kHzSCS) can reduce device recharge time while maintaining efficacy in patients with chronic intractable back pain with/without leg pain. DESIGN Prospective, multi-center, observational study. METHODS Patients successfully using 10kHzSCS at 100%ON (no PD) for >3-months were consecutively enrolled. After a 1-week Baseline period ...

BACKGROUND Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a well-established treatment for chronic intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs; however, low back pain (LBP) is difficult to treat using traditional SCS. Differential Target Multiplexed spinal cord stimulation (DTM SCS) is an advanced approach inspired from animal studies demonstrating improved pain-related behavior and pain-relevant biological processes. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of DTM SCS and tradition...

Background and objectives Multiple variables play a role in spinal cord stimulation (SCS) treatment outcomes, including patient anatomy, pain pattern, lead location, stimulation parameters, and so on. A wide range of stimulation parameters are considered safe and on-label, and as a result a growing number of new frequencies and frequency-combinations are being incorporated into standard practice. A standardized approach to therapy delivery may provide more consistent outcomes for more patients. ...

This Practice Advisory presents a comprehensive and evidence-based set of position statements and recommendations for the use of contrast media in interventional pain procedures. The advisory was established by an international panel of experts under the auspices of 11 multinational and multispecialty organizations based on a comprehensive review of the literature up to December 31, 2019. The advisory discusses the risks of using gadolinium-based contrast agents. These include nephrogenic system...

INTRODUCTION Interventional pain procedures have increased in complexity, often requiring longer radiation exposure times and subsequently higher doses. The practicing physician requires an in-depth knowledge and evidence-based knowledge of radiation safety to limit the health risks to themselves, patients and healthcare staff. The objective of this study was to examine current radiation safety practices and knowledge among interventional pain physicians and compare them to evidence-based recomm...

Dear Editor, We thank Drs Helm and Benyamin[1][1] for their thoughtful comments on our facet joint consensus guidelines[2][2] and are delighted to respond. First, we agree with the relatively weak evidence to support intra-articular steroids, which is why we recommended against the routine use of

Neurostimulation techniques for the treatment of chronic low back pain (LBP) have been rapidly evolving; however, questions remain as to which modalities provide the most efficacious and durable treatment for intractable axial symptoms. Modalities of spinal cord stimulation, such as traditional low-frequency paresthesia based, high-density or high dose (HD), burst, 10-kHz high-frequency therapy, closed-loop, and differential target multiplexed, have been limitedly studied to determine their effi...

INTRODUCTION: Despite Accredited Counsel of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) guidance and criteria, there remains variability in training both within each specialty and across the specialties involved in the delivery of neuromodulation. NANS advocates for the efficacious and safe the implementation of neuromodulation and therefore an educational mentoring program with a defined educational platform is needed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a structured, patient centered, and evidence-based app...
