FREIRE, E.; IGLESIA, A. de la  y  CAMBA, A.. Spinal Cord Stimulation for peripheral vascular disease treatment: Part II. Rev. Soc. Esp. Dolor [online]. 2008, vol.15, n.6, pp.392-398. ISSN 1134-8046.

The Neuromodulation technologies are a not destructive and reversible approach in the treatment of the pain. They are used as a strategy for the control of untreatable pain according to the directives of the OMS and as an alternative of other invasive minor or neuroablatives therapies that have been not effective or that are not indicated. Between them the clinical use of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has demonstrated its usefulness and efficiency in the treatment of different syndromes of chronic pain. Cook´s and cols. in 1.976, demonstrated in their reports the efficiency of this technique in the clinical manifestation of ischemic pain as well as in the arteriosclerosis, diabetic vasculopaty, or in the ischemic pain related with peripheral vasospasm, in specific pathologies as the Buerguer´s disease, Scleroderma or Raynaud´s syndrome. During the last decade, the utilization of the SCS has spread in the ischemic cardiopathy of untreatable character (refractory angina pectoris, syndrome "X",…) and vascular peripheral pathology, subject of this review. This technique appears as one of the main indications with high levels of efficiency (80%), so much in the clinical aspect for the symptomatic relief as well as in the ischemic physiopatologic benefits that induces the neuroestimulation.
