Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This study is a clinical audit of patients undergoing implantation of commercially-available and TGA-approved high frequency stimulators (Nevro high frequency stimulator and electrode leads, TGA certificate DV-2011-MC-00182-3) in the clinical management of pain. Pain ratings, Oswestry Disability ratings, patient satisfaction and morphine equivalent consumption will be assessed before the implant and one year aferwards.

Patients will self-report consumption of opioid drugs at each clinical review. A morphine equivalent consumption score before and one year after the stimulator is implanted will be calculated using the OPIOID CONVERSION to oral MORPHINE EQUIVALENT DAILY DOSE Toolkit http://www.hnehealth.nsw.gov.au/Pain/Documents/FPM_opioid_conversion_20141.pdf

Summary
Brief summary
This study is a clinical audit of patients undergoing implantation of a commercially-available and TGA-approved high frequency stimulator (TGA certificate DV-2011-MC-00182-3) between 1st January 2013 and 1st February 2017 for the clinical management of pain. The study will be a two-year audit of pain scores, disability index, analgesic drug consumption and patient satisfaction after implantation of a high frequency electrical nerve stimulator. Each patient will provide their informed consent for their data to be included in the clinical audit.
