Epidural spinal cord stimulation (ESCS): Implantation technique

  • Conference paper

Abstract

Epidural spinal cord stimulation (ESCS) has been scientifically documented as a potent measure in the treatment of chronic pain for over 20 years [1]. The first ESCS application in the treatment of ischemic rest pain was in 1976 by Cook et al. [2]. Since 1986, we have studied the clinical effects of ESCS in patients with non-reconstructable peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) [3].
