Translocation of AMPA Receptors in the Dorsal Horn of the Spinal Cord Corresponding to Long-term Depression Following Pulsed Radiofrequency Stimulation at the Dorsal Root Ganglion.


Pulsed radiofrequency stimulation at the dorsal root ganglion is used for treatment of radicular pain; however, its mechanism for neuropathic pain treatment has not been fully elucidated. Here, we investigated whether pulsed radiofrequency stimulation affects the α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA) receptors, which play a critical role in synaptic plasticity.
