Ultrasound-Guided Peripheral Nerve Stimulation of Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar Spinal Nerves for Dermatomal Pain: A Case Series.

Neuromodulation 2020 Dec 14. Epub 2020 Dec 14.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Department of Anesthesiology, New York, NY, USA.

Objectives: With the development of percutaneously inserted devices, peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) has been gaining attention within chronic pain literature as a less invasive neurostimulation alternative to spinal column and dorsal root ganglion stimulation. A majority of current PNS literature focuses on targeting individual distal nerves to treat individual peripheral mononeuropathies, limiting its applications. This article discusses our experience treating dermatomal pain with neurostimulation without needing to access the epidural space by targeting the proximal spinal nerve with peripheral nerve stimulation under ultrasound-guidance.
