TA159 Pain (chronic neuropathic or ischaemic) - spinal cord stimulation: review proposal - November 2013

Review of NICE Technology Appraisal Guidance No.159; Spinal cord stimulation for chronic pain of neuropathic or ischaemic origin

Proposal to move the existing guidance to the static list

In January 2012 the decision was made to defer the consideration of a review of TA159 until the end of 2013.

No new evidence has come to light that would lead to a change in the existing recommendations.  Therefore we propose that TA159 should move to the static list of technology appraisals.

Topics on the static list may be transferred back to the active list for further appraisal if new evidence becomes available that is likely to have a material effect on the last guidance issued.

In order to be completely confident that this is appropriate, we are asking all relevant consultees and commentators, to inform us of any evidence which will help us decide the best way to update this guidance.  Please see appendix A for a full list of the organisations we have contacted.
