Advances in Spinal Neuromodulation for Chemotherapy-induced Peripheral Neuropathy.


Gupta P, Patel K, Paul G


Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) continues to be a major source of chronic morbidity in patients with cancer. Current treatment options and efficacy are limited; thus, there is a need to investigate more effective therapeutic options. Spinal neuromodulation including dorsal column spinal cord stimulation (SCS) and dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRG-S) are being explored for these patients. The purpose of this narrative review was to critically summarize and evaluate the advancements that have been made in utilizing SCS and DRG-S for CIPN.
