Abstract
An 82 year old man who had suffered from intractable post-herpetic
neuralgic pain received percutaneous permanent spinal cord stimulator implantation.
Pain relief was so remarkable that he could sleep without the interference of frequent
acute sharp attacks of pain, and at the same time, he could do his work again, which
had been impossible before he received this treatment. We recommend this procedure
for several kinds of intractable pain, including peripheral nerve and root lesions. spinal
cord lesions and peripheral vascular disease, after careful selection of the patient.
