Abstract

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for the treatment of painful peripheral neuropathy (PN) has been met with mixed results. It has been suggested that early-stage symptoms that are sympathetically maintained (SMP) are more likely to respond to SCS, while progressive sympathetically independent symptoms (SIP) will not. Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS), however, has successfully treated certain SIP presentations. With the advent of new selective nerve root stimulation (SNRS) strategies, the possibility of utilizing epidural, peripheral neurostimulation was investigated in a patient with endstage, diabetic, 'dying back' peripheral SIP.
