Stimulators, Electrical, Peripheral Nerve, Analgesic, Implantable

Definition : Peripheral nerve electrical analgesic stimulators that apply the stimuli through electrodes placed around a peripheral nerve. These stimulators usually consist of either an implanted lead/electrode system attached to a passive electronic circuit into which energy is inductively coupled from outside the body, typically at radio frequencies, or a totally implantable self-contained stimulator that carries its own energy source and has no inherent dependence upon external devices. These implantable analgesic stimulators are used to treat chronic severe intractable pain, where the use of drug therapy is undesirable or no longer effective.
