Intrathecal Drug Delivery (Pain Pump) I Trialing (Video 3)

Video #3 focuses on what patients should expect during the trialing procedure. Trialing is the process of temporarily injecting or infusing medicine into the fluid-filled space (i.e., intrathecal space) around your spinal cord. The trial will assess the following:

1. Pain relief – If you receive greater than 50% pain relief then you will be cleared for intrathecal pump surgery and implantation.
2. Side effects – We want to make sure that the medicine you receive after pump surgery and implantation is safe.
