  1. 2024;8;1-4 Peripheral Nerve Stimulation Uses High-Frequency Electromagnetic Coupling Technology to Power an Implanted Neurostimulator With a Separate Receiver at the Ilioinguinal Nerve for the Treatment of Chronic Groin and Abdominal Pain: Case Report
    Case Report
    Amr H. Badawy, MD.

BACKGROUND: Chronic groin pain can be debilitating to patients, reducing their overall quality of life. Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) is an emerging neuromodulation therapy that may be used for groin pain refractory to other treatment modalities.

CASE REPORT: An 86-year-old Hispanic man with a history of left inguinal hernia repair with mesh presenting chronic groin and abdominal pain was successfully treated with subthreshold PNS at the ilioinguinal nerve.

CONCLUSION: This case study demonstrated that subthreshold PNS can safely and effectively manage chronic groin and abdominal pain.

KEY WORDS: Peripheral nerve stimulation, chronic pain, ilioinguinal, groin pain
