Abstract

Use of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has expanded beyond pain control. There are increasing indications in which SCS is being used. The understanding of central and peripheral neural pathways and their controlling influences on peripheral organs is better understood now. The concept of stimulating the spinal cord and modulating central pathways with SCS is already established. Different studies have shown the benefit with SCS on visceral pain control, improving quality of live in severe peripheral vascular disease and even assist in controlling the vago-sympathetic balance. We will discuss the art of implantation. Patient selection and stimulation with respect to current clinical data.
