Caption: The NSS-2 BRIDGE is a percutaneous nerve field
stimulator that can be used as an aid to reduce the symptoms of opioid withdrawal, through application to branches of cranial nerves V, VII, and IX, as well as branches of the occipita.
In this article, we describe a patient with greater than ten years of chronic headaches resistant to multiple treatment strategies who underwent a trial of peripheral nerve field stimulation.
Neuromodulation, including peripheral nerve field stimulation (PNFS), generally involves selective application of programmable pulse waveform through series of electrodes within a lead to stimulate nerve fibers, subsequently reducing pain.
Neuromodulation, including peripheral nerve field stimulation, is a commonly used treatment option for various chronic pain conditions when other treatments have proven ineffective.
Chapters also present peripheral subcutaneous stimulation (also termed peripheral nerve field
stimulation) where electrodes are implanted over fibres in the subcutaneous tissues in the area of worst pain, rather than to the nerve trunk.
A Yes, the device you are referring to is an electrical system called peripheral nerve field
