Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) using the PINS spinal cord stimulator device for chronic and intractable pain.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pain Chronic Pain Back Pain Spinal Cord Stimulation Nervous System Diseases Device: PINS Spinal Cord Stimulator Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Adult patients with chronic intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs who are candidates for a treatment with spinal cord stimulation will be prospectively randomized into 2 arms. Spinal cord stimulation parameters are programmed and adjusted during outpatient clinic visits, within the normal clinical practice.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimental
Subjects' PINS spinal cord stimulator randomized to this arm is on always
Device: PINS Spinal Cord Stimulator

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The difference of Visual-analogue scale (VAS) between the experimental group and the control group [ Time Frame: 13 weeks ]
    Pain will be evaluated in the different groups according to the Visual-analogue scale (VAS) varying from 0 to 10 with a higher score indicating a higher level of pain.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in VAS [ Time Frame: 4、12、24 weeks ]
    Pain will be evaluated in the different groups according to the Visual-analogue scale (VAS) varying from 0 to 10 with a higher score indicating a higher level of pain.

  2. Sleep Quality [ Time Frame: 4、12、24 weeks ]
    Quality of sleep will be assessed according to the number of nights with awakenings.

  3. Changes in Beck Depression Inventory [ Time Frame: 4、12、24 weeks ]
    This will be assessed using the Beck Depression Inventory, a self-report measure of depression severity that is a well-characterized scale with excellent psychometric properties and is frequently used in research studies of depression. Higher values represent greater severity of depression.

  4. Change in quality of life as measured by SF-36 [ Time Frame: 4、12、24 weeks ]
    The quality of life will be assessed using the 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) questionnaire.

  5. Number of subjects with adverse events [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    The number of adverse events will be record at each visit.
