Overview

This book is about the history, science, technology and current clinical applications of electrical stimulation for the relief of pain. The clinical applications are diverse, from angina and the pain of peripheral vascular disease to the agony of interstitial cystitis (a promising new indication), from the mysterious and disabling complex regional pain syndromes to phantom pain and stroke pain. The contributors reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the subject in a unique compilation. All parts of the nervous system can be stimulated to provide relief of otherwise intractable pain, from the peripheral nerves through the spinal cord to the brain, and the book is organised on this basis.
