Neuromodulation zur Schmerztherapie – was ist sinnvoll?

Translated title of the contribution: Neuromodulation for the Treatment of Chronic Pain - What is Useful?


Neuromodulatory techniques have replaced the earlier performed neurolesional procedures to treat chronic pain syndromes with only a few exceptions. Nevertheless these procedures are invasive with respective risks and complications and therefore conservative physical, psychological pharmacological as well as interventional treatments should be performed first. Because this therapy is costly, the indication has to be proven carefully with a strict patient selection and also the long-term results have to be considered. The following paper will give an overview over the recent neuromodulatory techniques, their indications and and published results.
