PMID: 32105875.


Chronic abdominal pain (CAP) is a debilitating condition known for its multifactorial nature. However, outcomes with spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for abdominal pain syndromes are noticeably absent in the literature. To date, there have been no published reports of novel waveforms of SCS for the management of CAP. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and durability of BurstDR SCS in reducing abdominal pain and analgesic consumption.
