Spinal cord stimulation for refractory angina pectoris and peripheral vascular disease.

Author information

The Center for Pain Relief, Charleston, West Virginia 25301, USA.


Spinal cord stimulation has been used in clinical practice for more than three decades. The primary use of this therapy has been in spine-related disorders. In recent years, the therapy has been used more extensively in diseases of the vascular system. Increasingly, interest has piqued in using this mode of treatment for refractory angina and ischemic pain secondary to peripheral vascular disease. In this publication, we review the current literature on these two indications and present case examples of both therapies.
