Bennett, Michael I. and Tai, Y. M. A. (1994) Cervical dorsal column stimulation relieves pain of brachial plexus avulsion. Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, 87 (1). pp. 5-6.Full text not available from this repository.
Five patients with deafferentation pain due to brachial plexus avulsion injuries were treated with cervical dorsal column stimulation (DCS). This has produced a clinically useful improvement in pain relief and mood scores during a mean follow-up period of 13.5 months. No complications have been encountered and the advantages of DCS are discussed.
