Pain Research and Clinical Managemnet Series, Volume 15
B. A. Simpson
This book is about the history, science, technology and current clinical applications of electrical stimulation for the relief of pain. The clinical applications are diverse, from angina and the pain of peripheral vascular disease to the agony of interstitial cystitis (a promising new indication), from the mysterious and disabling complex regional pain syndromes to phantom pain and stroke pain. The contributors reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the subject in a unique compilation. All parts of the nervous system can be stimulated to provide relief of otherwise intractable pain, from the peripheral nerves through the spinal cord to the brain, and the book is organised on this basis.
"The future looks quite bright for the field of neuromodulation and I, for one, feel that I am a better implanter and pain physician for having read this excellent text. I highly recommend it to both the experienced implanter and the novice implanter."
"...the authors are all experts in their respective fields; ...so the reader can get most of the relevant information of electrical stimulation that is available!"
