Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is effective for neurogenic forms of pain. Sometimes that SCS also may influence nociceptive pain components. The mixed pain syndrome is presumably that most common indication for SCS. We assess the effect of the synergy spinal cord stimulation in our hospital. Materials and Methods: We had operated 12 spinal cord stimulation operation during last 2 years. 6 among them was Synergy spinal cord stimulation electrodes. The indications were 3 failed back surgery syndromes, 2 spinal cord injuries, 1 cauda equina syndrome.
Male to female was 5:1. VAS was decresed from 9.4 to 3.6. There was no complications.
Specify spinal cord stimulation is very effective for intractable neuropathic pain.
Key Words: Specify spinal cord stimulation, Neuropathic pain.
