ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00205868
First received: September 13, 2005
Last updated: October 10, 2008
Last verified: October 2008
  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to assess the acute and chronic effectiveness of the Advanced Bionics Precision(TM) Spinal Cord Stimulation System in subjects with failed back surgery syndrome and associated low back axial pain.

Subjects will undergo a temporary or permanent trial to assess their candidacy for placement of an implantable pulse generator. Those who demonstrate a significant clinical reduction in pain will be enrolled in the chronic study. Subjects will be followed for 12 months post implantation to assess the long-term effectiveness of the therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effectiveness of SCS stimulation in reducing back pain associated with Failed Back Surgery Syndrome after 12 months of use. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effectiveness of SCS stimulation in reducing leg pain associated with Failed Back Surgery Syndrome after 12 months of use. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of patients who achieve a significant clinical reduction in back pain defined as >50% reduction in VAS score with stimulation compared with no stimulation [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
