Study clinical application in Spinal Cord Stimulation

This study aims to summarise published and evidence-based guidelines with regards to utilising Spinal Cord sTIMULATION (SCS), including patient selection, perioperative management, complication mitigation strategies, disease indication, and device selection.

Additional focus has been provided on quality care to individual patients by acknowledging the importance of durable outcomes and care delivery costs. SCS has alleviated patient suffering and enhanced the lives of patients with refractory pain conditions for more than 30 years. SCS studies have consistently demonstrated beneficial effects through reduction of pain, reduced healthcare expenditures improvement in function, in diagnosis groups. Although SCS benefits are well-supported and this clinical application therapy varies based on physician training regional clinical practice variations, experience, and insurance coverage. In this study, assessed published studies, evidence-based guidelines, case reports, and expert consensus, through improved clinical outcomes with the intent of increasing physician competency and enhancing patient care. SCS modalities promise even greater efficacy over traditional SCS for some pain conditions. On the basis, Physicians must carefully select and manage their patients and the SCS device to achieve this promise.
