Abstract

Objective: To report about the safe use of a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) and a permanent cardiac pacemaker (PPM). Design: Open-label case report. Case Description: A 75-year-oid male with a history of diabetic polyneuropathy and a permanent pacemaker was followed for 6 months after implantation of a SCS. Conclusion: The simultaneous use of bipolar SCS in a patient with a PPM is not contraindicated. However, because false inhibition of a cardiac pacemaker may potentially lead to serious events, individual testing is mandatory to ascertain safety in each patient.
