Implantable Neuromodulation Device in the Lower Limb

Implantable peripheral nerve stimulators are used with the goal to decrease the neuropathic pain level and possibly the need for opioid analgesics. Peripheral nerve injuries and pathology must be thoroughly evaluated before implantation of neuromodulation devices. Ultrasound-guided nerve blocks and a peripheral nerve stimulator trial is performed before surgical implantation. In this article, the authors discuss indications, clinical and diagnostic examinations, and their surgical technique for implantation of the Bioventus StimRouter.
