The patient’s successful treatment and subsequent good treatment effect depend on the degree of recognition of the proposed treatment, or whether the patient is willing to accept this treatment. Therefore, before providing a new treatment method for patients, doctors should first determine the overall treatment objectives and communicate with patients accordingly.
Patients to be treated with CSC need to meet the following selection criteria before entering the further screening and evaluation stage:
Suffering from chronic intractable pain in the trunk or limbs
Pain is physiological
Can withstand the impact of surgical treatment
No serious drug addiction or drug abuse
Conditions permit long-term postoperative analgesia management
Patient control device capable of correctly operating nerve stimulation system
Clearly understand the process of electrode implantation, and have correct and reasonable expectations for the therapeutic effect
It has passed the psychological evaluation of the expectation of the possibility of successful treatment
There are no additional special screening criteria for low back and leg pain. In clinical practice, most of the patients with low back and leg pain who meet the patient screening criteria continue to be tested and treated.
