N-of-1 Trials for Assessing the Efficacy of Deep Brain Stimulation in Neuropathic Pain.

The objective of this study is to determine the usefulness of single-patient, randomised, controlled trials (N-of-1 trials) in assessing the efficacy of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in neuropathic pain. Seven patients with various causes of intractable neuropathic pain underwent insertion of deep brain stimulating electrodes into the periventricular gray area or ventroposterolateral nucleus of the thalamus.
