Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been used worldwide in human populations
for various conditions since the 1980s. Most modern systems are fully
implantable and consist of a pulse generator (implanted in the abdominal, gluteal
, or paraspinous region) connected to one or more spinal stimulating leads. The
leads are implanted surgically or placed via percutaneous techniques into the
dorsal epidural space, with the electrodes located at the spinal level appropriate
for treatment of ...

In 1967 Shealy inserted the first dorsal column stimulator in a human suffering
from terminal metastatic cancer[3]. Shortly afterwards, the first two solid state
transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators (TENS)[3] were produced.
Subsequently, electrodes have been implanted utilizing a variety of techniques:
via a laminectomy in the subarachnoid space, between the two layers of the dura
or in the epidural space.[4]. The percutaneous technique was introduced later [5].
