Successful Peripheral Neuromodulation for Phantom Limb Pain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Setting: For decades, the heterogeneity of the amputee population and the complex interaction of biopsychosocial factors have confounded researchers' attempts to develop an effective treatment for phantom limb pain. Therefore, it remains difficult to treat, and affected patients often experience decreased quality of life, increased psychological distress, and poorer health outcomes. Patient: In the case study, we report a novel strategy for the peripheral placement of neuromodulation leads for the treatment of phantom limb pain in a patient who subsequently described complete and consistent pain relief independent of significant variations in psychosocial stress.
