Matching Pain and Pathology with Device and Technique

Neuromodulation has evolved beyond existing as a ''one-size-fits-all'' therapy. Innovation is now aimed at creating indication-specific therapies that play to the strengths of each breakthrough. This session will attempt to elucidate which therapies are better suited for certain indications based on the current evidence available.

Spine Intervention Society: Radiofrequency Ablation-Assessing the Current Evidence

This session will outline the most evidence-based approach for diagnosing and treating posterior element pain in an interventional spine practice. During this session, we will discuss patient selection and why it is critical to achieving ideal patient outcomes. The importance of performing a critical, evidence-based review and critique of the literature will be reviewed. We will end with a discussion of new technology for ablation for vertebrogenic pain.

What's in the Signal? The Value Underlying Closed Loop Stimulation

Speakers will discuss the science and underpinning of sensing systems as they are used to guide therapy from neuromodulation devices. The use of electrical signals obtained as biomarkers for effective therapy will be discussed. The robustness and reliability of signals obtained from implanted electrodes used as indicators of disease status (such as tremor, seizures, or autonomic changes), or as pathway biomarkers (such as the case for spinal cord stimulation for pain) are new to the field. Much has been published on the potential use of these signals in the feedback control or guidance of neuromodulation implants.
