Brain stimulation in the treatment of chronic neuropathic and non-cancerous pain
The Journal of Pain, 04/13/2012
Plow EB et al. – This critical review focuses on factors contributing to poor therapeutic utility of invasive and noninvasive brain stimulation in the treatment of chronic neuropathic and pain of noncancerous origin. Through key clinical trial design and conceptual refinements, retention and consistency of response may be improved, potentially facilitating the widespread clinical applicability of such approaches.
