Spinal cord stimulation during the antepartum and intrapartum periods: a case report showing no deleterious effect of conventional paraesthesia producing stimulation

Abstract

We report on a 25-year-old woman who used her spinal cord stimulator (SCS), previously inserted for chronic regional pain syndrome (CPRS), to assist with both chronic and pregnancy-related pain management. We describe the therapeutic effect of the stimulator and briefly highlight the issues surrounding the use of SCS during pregnancy.
