Spinal cord stimulation for refractory angina in a patient implanted with a cardioverter defibrillator

Pacing Clin Electrophysiol. 2007 Jan;30(1):143-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1540-8159.2007.00592.x.


Spinal cord stimulation is currently used to treat refractory angina. Some concerns may arise about the possible interaction concerning the spinal cord stimulator in patients already implanted with a pacemaker or a cardioverter defibrillator. We are going to describe the successful implantation of a spinal cord stimulator in a patient previously implanted with a cardioverter defibrillator.
