How Medtronic Wants To 'evolve' Spinal Stimulation

How Medtronic Wants to 'Evolve' Spinal Stimulation The company enrolled the first patient in a postmarket study of its Evolve workflow therapy to standardize guidance for physicians. Medtronic has launched a postmarket trial of Evolve, which it recommends for use with its Intellis implantable neurostimulator. Evolve received FDA approval and the CE Mark last year. Medtronic seeks to prove high-dose spinal stimulation just as good as low-dose About 9,000 patients with chronic lower back and leg pain have had a personal trial of Medtronics Evolve workflow to help their physicians decide how much high- and/or low-spinal cord stimulation they need to manage pain. Now the company has launched an official postmarket trial of Evolve, which it recommends for use with its Intellis implantable neurostimulator. Evolve received FDA approval and the CE Mark last year. Medtronic hopes that the Vectors study will produce step-by-step instructions for physicians on how to best use Intellis high- and low-dose stimulation to meet each patients needs, according to Matt Thomas, general manager of the companys stimulation and early interventions business. Low-dose stimulation used to be the only option for spinal cord stimulation, and some patients couldnt tolerate the sensations it produced. Despite its name, high-dose stimulation does not yield such strong feelings or immediate pain relief, Thomas said. It gives them versatility, he said of Intellis. It doesnt lock them into one versus the other. The trial will begin with high-dose stimulation, and depending on the patients response, the physician can make recommendations on how to change the dosage. The patient controls the amount of stimulation received. If the patient isnt feeling the pain relief, you can adjust the high dose or you c Continue reading >>

Spinal Cord Stimulation: The Clinical Application of New Technology The use of neuromodulation for pain relief is among the fastest-growing areas of medicine, involving many diverse specialties and impacting on hundreds of thousands of patients with numerous disorders worldwide. As the evidence of efficacy improves, the interest in spinal cord stimulation (SCS) will increase because it is minimally invasive, safe, and a reversible treatment modality with limited side effect profile. While the mechanism of action evades complete understanding, the technological improvements have been considerable and current neuromodulation developments have been coupled with the rapid growth of the neuromodulation device industry resulting in the development of the next-generation neuromodulation systems. The development, the newest technicaliti and the future for the clinical application of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) are reviewed here. Neuromodulation is among the fastest-growing areas of medicine, involving many diverse specialties and impacting on hundreds of thousands of patients with numerous disorders worldwide [ 1 ]. Historically, electricity, either in the form of the torpedo fish or man-made electrotherapy, has been used to try and cure various ailments [ 2 ]. For example, in the middle of the 18th century electroanalge Continue reading >>

MRI and Neurostimulation Therapy for Chronic Pain Medtronic recommends that you do not conduct an MRI examination of any part of the body on a patient using a radio-frequency (RF) transmit body coil. If all of the instructions stated in this section are followed, MRI examinations of the head only using an RF transmit/receive head coil may be safely performed. It is important to read this information in its entirety before conducting an MRI examination on a patient with any implanted component of a Medtronic neurostimulation system for chronic pain. These instructions do not apply to other implantable products or other devices, products, or items. Contact Medtronic if you have questions. www.Medtronic.com Due to the number and variability of parameters that affect MRI compatibility, the safety of patients or continued functioning of neurostimulation systems exposed to MRI cannot be absolutely ensured. MRI systems generate powerful electromagnetic fields that can produce a number of interactions with implanted components of the neurostimulation system. Some of these interactions, especially heating, are potentially hazardous and can lead to serious injury or death. However, when all instructions stated in this section are followed, MRI examinations of the head only may be safely performed. In addition, neurostimulation system components can affect the MRI image, potentially impacting the diagnostic use of this modality. The following information describes the potential interactions and control measures that should be taken to minimize the risks from these interactions. The instructions in this section describe how to conduct a head-only MRI examination of a patient with a neurostimulation system implanted for chronic pain, using a transmit/receive head coil of a 1.5-Tesl Continue reading >>

Intellis(tm), The Next Generation Medtronic Spinal Cord Stimulator For Long-term Management Of Chronic Pain, Now Licensed In Canada

Intellis(TM), the Next Generation Medtronic Spinal Cord Stimulator for Long-Term Management of Chronic Pain, Now Licensed in Canada BRAMPTON, ON, Aug. 1, 2018 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- World's Smallest SCS Provides a Non-Opioid Treatment Option for Canadians Suffering from Chronic Pain Medtronic of Canada Ltd., a subsidiary of Medtronic plc MDT, -0.93% today announced it has received a licence from Health Canada for its IntellisTM platform, which includes the world's smallest implantable spinal cord stimulator (SCS) for the management of certain types of chronic intractable pain. Chronic pain is a debilitating condition that can negatively impact all aspects of a person's life -- relationships, work productivity and activities of daily living -- yet it remains under-recognized and undertreated.(1)Given the national crisis involving opioid abuse, it is more important than ever for Canadians suffering from chronic pain to have access to new non-opioid treatment options. "Persistent neuropathic pain is challenging to treat, and our goal should be to restore our patient's mobility and improve their quality of life with effective long-term pain relief," said Sean Christie, M.D., FRCSC, associate professor and director of research at Dalhousie University. "Considering the recommendations of Choosing Wisely Canada(*), it's more important than ever to find effective, long-term, non-opioid solutions. The availability of the Intellis spinal cord stimulator offers new possibilities for some patients struggling with debilitating pain." Who Is Rachel Mitchell, the Prosecutor Tapped for Kavanaugh Hearing? Six million people in Canada report that they have a form of chronic pain.(2) Back problems are among the most common chronic conditions, with an estimated 30 percent of the Continue reading >>

St. Jude Medical Launches App That Enables Patients To Manage Implanted Spinal Cord Stimulation Device In Real Time

St. Jude Medical Launches App That Enables Patients To Manage Implanted Spinal Cord Stimulation Device In Real Time

St. Jude Medical launches app that enables patients to manage implanted spinal cord stimulation device in real time St. Jude Medical has launched a medical app intended for patients with chronic pain who use the companys spinal cord stimulation devices called Patient Controller. The medical app helps patients manage the programs prescribed by their physicians and communicates with the implanted/external device using Bluetooth. The medical app lets patients more easily turn the devices nerve stimulation on and off, select the right programs, adjust the amplitude of the device, and check the devices battery. Patient Controller will also inform patients that the device generator is in MRI mode and whether the sleep timer is on or off. Patient Controller also provides information on the strength of the nerve stimulation signal being sent and the location of the signal on the patients body. Theres little doubt that spinal cord stimulation systems fill a need. In a recent press release announcing its Protg rechargeable nerve stimulation device, St Jude Medical which is not affiliated with St Jude Childrens Research Hospitalpointed out that over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. The Patient Controller app may help meet their needs by making it more convenient for patients to manipulate their implanted device. Unfortunately, however, the mobile app is currently available only for use on the iPod Touch, whichlimits its value since the vast majority of Americans have iPhones, and Android or Windows based phones. St Judes spinal cord nerve stimulation devices join several other neurostimulation systems approved by the FDA to relieve pain. Cefaly, for instance, a headband used to treat migraines, operates on a similar principle and has been proposed as an alternative Continue reading >>

Determining Mri Eligibility

Determining Mri Eligibility

Neurostimulators and leads that are not SureScan components have no unique identifiers Using the MyStim Patient Programmer to Determine MRI Eligibility Programmer software simplifies the identification of implanted system components and MRI-scan eligibility. The patients MyStim patient programmer (model 97740 or later) can be used to access MRI information programmed in the implanted neurostimulator and activate MRI Mode at the same time. Note: Earlier models of the MyStim patient programmer (models 37746 or earlier) do not indicate MRI-scan eligibility. However, they indicate if stimulation is on or off. Ask the patient to access the MRI information and show you the display screen on their MyStim patient programmer. If the patient does not know how to access MRI information using the MyStim patient programmer, refer to the checklist designed for patients. If the eligibility screen indicates one of the eligibility results shown below, confirm that the neurostimulator model number on the screen or form matches one of the model numbers listed in the Neurostimulator Model Numbers section of the MRI Guidelines for Medtronic Neurostimulation Systems for Chronic Pain . Then refer to the appropriate scan conditions indicated below before proceeding with the MRI scan.

Magnetism - Questions And Answers In Mri

Can patients with spinal cord stimulators undergo MRI? Read MR Safety Disclaimer Before Proceeding Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is indicated for the management of chronic intractable pain of the back, trunk, or extremities. The typical system consists of a implanted pulse generator (IPG) located subcutaneously in the flank or lower abdomen connected by insulated lead(s) to a paddle-shaped electrode grid placed in the posterior epidural space of the mid-to-lower thoracic spine. Three companies manufacture and distribute SCS systems: St. Jude Medical (Plano, TX, USA), Boston Scientific (Marlborough, MA, USA), and Medtronic (Minneapolis, MN, USA). At present St. Jude SCS devices are not available in the USA. Several of the earlier SCS models from each company are not MR compatible and considered Unsafe. Spinal cord burns and paralysis have occurred in some patients subjected to MRI with these devices. Each of these companies now manufactures SCS Systems that have been FDA- or CE Mark-certified as MR Conditional. These include Medtronic (specific models of Intrel, RestoreSensor, RestoreUltra, and PrimeAdvanced SureScan neurostimulators;both head-only and full-body MR compatible devices available) Boston Scientific (Precision Spectra SCS System - head only) St. Jude Medical (Prodigy MRIand Proclaim Elite - head and limited extremity imaging, not available in US) The conditions for use vary slightly among devices but currently all include restriction to 1.5T horizontal closed bore magnets, supine patient position, gradient slew rates 200 T/m/s, and SAR limits: SAR 2.0 W/kg (whole body) or 3.2W/kg (head). Head and extremity systems require the use of local quadrature transmit-receive coils (use of body RF-coils forbidden). Other restrictions may also apply. See the manufactu Continue reading >>

Discussions > Treating MS > Spinal Cord Stimulator for ms lesion cord pain* Spinal Cord Stimulator for ms lesion cord pain* Good afternoon all.... I am writing this new post to see if anyone can assist me with referral knowledge. I live in South Fla and need a pain mgt doctor experienced with spinal cord implantation for people with ms lesions on the cord. There are so many pill mills around and docs who implant stimulators for trauma, accidents for legal cases that I dont want to chose from. I figure I have one shot at this. My pain has stumped so many docs as it is in the pelvic area on the left side and radiates up to the lower left back, feels like a burning since 2012. I will travel for the pro that meets the abovementioned criteria and hope with the reach of this site, I may find some referral. Thank you, Dave It might help to reach out to these pain management organizations in case they can provide physician referrals: You are also welcome to contact the National MS Society to see if we have any referrals in your area in our database: 1-800-344-4867, option 1. Hang in there, I hope you find some help soon! I do see a lot of MRI patients that have these. It can make having a MRI more difficult. Some stimulators are not MRI safe and most have certain conditions (like Tesla, horizontal vs vertical bore, gradient system and more). At the hospital system where I work we also do not scan any patients that have had a stimulator and then had it removed leaving the wires in place. It seems that this is a common practice, but there is potential for harm to the patient if the ends of those wires are frayed or damaged. Below is a link of a MRI conditional Medtronic spinal stimulator manual so that you can get an idea of the vast amount of conditions and risks that having a Continue reading >>

Neurostimulation For Chronic Pain Faqs - Medtronic Neuromodulation

Neurostimulation For Chronic Pain Faqs - Medtronic Neuromodulation

What is neurostimulation and how does it work? Neurostimulation is a proven, effective, reversible treatment alternative when other pain treatments provide unsatisfactory relief. Results may vary from patient to patient. Neurostimulation uses a small system, surgically placed under the skin, to send mild electrical impulses to the spinal cord or to a peripheral nerve via a special medical wire. These impulses block the pain signals from reaching the brain. Because neurostimulation works in the area where pain signals travel, its electrical impulses (which are felt as tingling) can be directed to cover the specific sites where you are feeling pain. Neurostimulation can decrease the need for pain medications. Will I hear or feel the neurostimulation system inside me, and will people notice it? The neurostimulator is usually implanted in the lower abdomen or buttock, where it is most comfortable and least visible. The device does not make any noise. It may be felt as a small bulge under your skin but it does not normally show through your clothes. The device ranges from 61 millimetres (mm) by 76 mm, to 56 mm by 61 mm or 49 mm by 65mm, depending on which system you receive. It is 15 mm to 10.16mm thick and weighs 42 grams (g) to 83 g. If your doctor recommends a radio-frequency system, the transmitter will be visible and is usually worn on the belt like a pager. In addition, an antenna must be placed on your skin for the system to work. Will I be able to adjust my neurostimulation system? The totally implantable system has a patient programmer (similar to a computer mouse) that allows you to adjust the stimulation produced by the neurostimulation system. In the external system, a transmitter similar to a pager is used to adjust the system. This transmitter, with an antenna Continue reading >>
