TI - Intraspinal narcotic analgesia in the treatment of chronic pain

AB - The results of intraspinal narcotic analgesia (INA) in 43 patients with chronic nonmalignant pain

syndromes are reviewed. A protocol has been established to improve proper patient selection and includes

three phases of study. Most of the patients have had INA for 2 years now. In those patients qualifying for

continuous delivery systems (CDS), 65% had good to excellent relief of pain while 34% were considered

failures for a variety of reasons. Apparent tolerance development in many of the patients was, in fact, due to

technical problems with the epidural catheter instead
