BACKGROUND: Neuromodulation is a standard and well-accepted treatment for chronic refractory neuropathic pain. There has been progressive innovation in the field over the last decade, particularly in areas of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) and dorsal root ganglion stimulation. Improved outcomes using proprietary waveforms have become customary in the field, leading to an unprecedented expansion of these products and a plethora of options for the management of pain. Although advances in waveform technology have improved our fundamental understanding of neuromodulation, a scoping review describing new energy platforms and their associated clinical effects and outcomes is needed...

OBJECTIVES: Psychologic screening is often included as a mandatory component of evaluation of the impact of psychopathology disorders on the predicted outcome of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for patients with chronic pain due to persistent spinal pain syndrome type 2 (PSPS type 2). The conclusion of such screenings can influence the decision to offer SCS therapy to a patient. However, evidence on the impact of psychopathology on SCS outcomes is still scarce. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To address this knowledge gap, we systematically reviewed the literature from 2009 to 2021 to explore the correlation between the presence of a psychopathological disorder and the predicted outcome of SCS in patients with PSPS type 2...

BACKGROUND: Ninety-Hz active-recharge spinal cord stimulation (SCS) applied at below sensory-threshold intensity, as used with fast-acting subperception therapy spinal cord stimulation, has been shown clinically to produce significant analgesia, but additional characterization is required to better understand the therapy. This preclinical study investigates the behavioral effect of multiple 90-Hz SCS variants in a rodent model of neuropathic pain, focusing on charge balance and the relationship between 90-Hz efficacy and stimulation intensity...

OBJECTIVES: Neuromodulation therapies use a variety of treatment modalities (eg, electrical stimulation) to treat chronic pain. These therapies have experienced rapid growth that has coincided with escalating confusion regarding the nomenclature surrounding these neuromodulation technologies. Furthermore, studies are often published without a complete description of the effective stimulation dose, making it impossible to replicate the findings. To improve clinical care and facilitate dissemination among the public, payors, research groups, and regulatory bodies, there is a clear need for a standardization of terms...

OBJECTIVE: Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) thresholds are known to change with body position; however, these changes have not been fully characterized for both "constant-voltage" and "constant-current" pulse generators. This study aimed to evaluate and quantify changes in psychophysical thresholds resulting from postural changes that may affect both conventional paresthesia-based SCS and novel paresthesia-free SCS technologies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We measured perceptual, usage, and discomfort thresholds in four body positions (prone, supine, sitting, standing) in 149 consecutive patients, with temporary lower thoracic percutaneous epidural electrodes placed for treating persistent low back and leg pain...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with an underlying cancer diagnosis may experience pain from many sources. Temporary, percutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) is a minimally invasive procedure that can control pain in those who have failed conservative management. The purpose of this retrospective review is to show the use of PNS in managing pain in the oncologic setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Temporary, percutaneous PNS was placed under fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance for 15 patients at a cancer pain facility...

OBJECTIVE: Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been used as a minimally invasive and effective treatment modality for various chronic pain disorders, with the main target being stimulation of the dorsal columns; however, certain neuropathic pain areas involve dermatomes that are suboptimally covered by SCS. Stimulation of the spinal nerve roots has the advantage of targeting one or several dermatomes at the same time. The aim of this systematic review is to investigate the efficacy of spinal nerve root stimulation (SNRS) for chronic pain disorders...

OBJECTIVES: Placement of a standard paddle lead for spinal cord stimulation (SCS) requires a laminotomy for positioning of the lead within the epidural space. During initial placement, an additional laminotomy or laminectomy, termed a "skip" laminotomy, may be necessary at a higher level to pass the lead to the appropriate midline position. Patient and radiographic factors that predict the need for a skip laminotomy have yet to be identified. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Participants who underwent SCS paddle placement at Albany Medical Center between 2016 and 2017 were identified...

OBJECTIVES: Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition involving autonomic dysregulation. In this study, we report the results of an ancillary study to a larger clinical trial investigating the treatment of CRPS by neuromodulation. This ancillary study, based on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), evaluated the neural correlates of pain in patients with CRPS in relation to the sympathetic nervous system and for its potential relief after repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the motor cortex...

OBJECTIVES: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) to treat chronic neuropathic pain has shown variable outcomes. Variations in pain etiologies and DBS targets are considered the main contributing factors, which are, however, underexplored owing to a paucity of patient data in individual studies. An updated meta-analysis to quantitatively assess the influence of these factors on the outcome of DBS for chronic neuropathic pain is warranted, especially considering that the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) has emerged recently as a new DBS target...

OBJECTIVES: In adult patients with chronic refractory constipation, invasive sacral neuromodulation (SNM) has been applied successfully. There is a need for less invasive solutions while providing comparable therapeutic effects in children and adolescents. We present a prospective, interventional case-control study on the application of noninvasive SNM. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with chronic constipation refractory to conservative treatment were prospectively included in the study from 2018 to 2021 and randomized to either SNM (SNM group: single current stimulation for 24 h/d, frequency 15 Hz, pulse width 210 μs, intensity 1-10 mA) or conventional treatment (controls: full range of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic options)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the comparative efficacy of neuromodulation technologies for overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome in adults. DATA SOURCES: A computerized search was conducted of Cochrane Library, EMBASE, MEDLINE (via PubMed), Web of Science, CNKI, Wan Fang Data, and ClinicalTrials.gov up to April 21, 2022. STUDY SELECTION: The search selected clinical trials with random allocation to percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS), transcutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (TTNS), vaginal electrical stimulation (VES), sacral neuromodulation (SNM), parasacral stimulation (PS), pudendal neuromodulation, or placebo...

OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of this review was to analyze the literature for the efficacy of neuromodulation interventions in treating both male and female sexual dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Studies were identified from PubMed, Scopus, PsychINFO, CINAHL, and Cochrane. Results were synthesized qualitatively without pooling owing to the heterogeneous nature of outcome assessments. RESULTS: Overall findings from studies generally supported that neuromodulation interventions were associated with improvement in sexual function...

BACKGROUND: Scrambler therapy (ST) is a noninvasive method of transcutaneous neuromodulation that has 510(K) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration for treating acute pain, postoperative pain, and intractable chronic pain. Since its inception, ST has been used to treat many chronic pain syndromes in a variety of patient populations. We synthesized the available literature for ST to delineate its overall evidence basis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a systematic review based on conventional Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses methods by surveying multiple data sources from January 1950 through October 2021...
