Randomised clinical trial data outcomes in neuromodulation

Chair: Dr Richard Sullivan, Precision Brain, Spine and Pain Centre, VIC
Recent pivotal studies (rated Level 1 CTF) in the US investigating efficacy of newer neuromodulation techniques have demonstrated substantial improvements in pain (50% or greater reduction in 70-80% of subjects sustained to 2 years post implant) and improvements in function and quality of life. Complications are uncommon and the risk profile is very favourable. Yet these therapies are often considered salvage techniques and remain poorly accepted and funded in the public domain in Australia. This session will discuss the evidence base and address the issues that impede access to this form of therapy
