Current treatments for chronic pain have limited effectiveness and commonly known side effects.
Given the prevalence and burden of intractable pain, additional therapeutic approaches are desired. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) delivered at 10kHz (as in HF10 therapy) may provide pain relief without the paresthesias typical of traditional low-frequency SCS. The objective of this randomised, parallel-arm, non inferiority study was to compare long-term safety and efficacy of SCS therapies in patients with back and leg pain.
This article briefly explains the study, the method and the outcomes of the study.
