Abstract

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a reliable clinical option for treatment of refractory chronic pain. It is known to be effective method for treating sympathetic pain, failed back surgery syndrome, and complex regional pain syndrome etc. The devices and implantation techniques for SCS are already highly developed and continuously improving, but there are some complications that can not be corrected easily. Lead migration is the most common complication after SCS. It can cause failure of SCS that can make discomfort to patients. Here we describe our experience of lead migration in implanted SCS which was inserted to a patient with complex regional pain syndrome patient.
