Successful Treatment of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Chronic Pain with Spinal Cord Stimulation: A Case Study
This case study involved a 37-year-old man diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease with pain of more than 20 years. He was implanted with an SCS device and patient pain and quality of life was assessed one and six months later. Results showed that SCS was effective in decreasing pain, improving quality of life and reducing medication consumption at both one and six months post-implant. In addition, the patient was satisfied with SCS treatment.
