Transgrade Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation as a Salvage Technique for Three Different Anatomical Barriers: A Case Series.


Dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRGS) is an effective treatment for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and post-surgical neuropathic pain. However, some patients have surgical and anatomical conditions that are contraindications to traditional DRGS technique. A novel transgrade approach to DRGS placement has been described and demonstrated effective for post spine surgery patients. We present three patients, each with a different reason in which DRGS would not be accessible via the traditional anterograde approach, who all had successful DRGS transgrade placement.
