Abstract

Interventional treatments are of vital importance in patients with chronic pain who do not respond to conventional drug therapy. Neuraxial drug delivery systems can be used for intractable cancer-induced pain. These devices, which are frequently used today and have advanced technological equipment, provide effective analgesia to patients. Another technique preferred especially in neuropathic pain is implantable devices that provide neurostimulation. Spinal cord stimulation (SCC) and Dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRG-S) are the most commonly used. This article describes frequently used devices that provide neurostimulation and nöraxial drug delivery device are mentioned, and their working principles, application techniques, and technological features. Pubmed and Google scholar were used to search the articles, and Google was used for device images and manufacturer information.
