Motor cortex stimulation for chronic neuropathic pain: a preliminary study of 10 cases.
There is growing evidence to support the use of motor cortex stimulation (MCS) in the management of patients with chronic neuropathic pain. A prospective audit of ten patients using a modified staged technique for motor cortex implantation provides further evidence for the analgesic effectiveness of this technique. Ten patients suffering from phantom limb pain (n=3), post stroke pain (n=5), post traumatic neuralgia secondary to gunshot injury to the brain stem (n=1) and brachyalgia secondary ...Expand abstract
