I'm considering having my Ans S.C.S. removed. But I'm also considering the possibility of lead replacement with the lamitrode tripole 16c. The typical leads used really don't cover low back. Which is where I need the stimulation.
The information I have, is that the 3-column configuration permits use of tripolar arrays, effectively confining the stimulation to the desired area, therefor supposedly allowing the stimulation to be precisely targeted to the desired area. and confined to that area. There are 16 settings that can be programed Independently or combined to stimulate more than one area.
What I'm wondering Is, Has anyone had these implanted and what is your opinion of them. Or has anyone heard of them or test results. Or have any additional info. on them.
They are somewhat new and I'm sure also costly. And I doubt if insurance will cover the cost.
I sure would appreciate any kind of feed back, good, bad or ugly!
