Hemodynamically Stable Ventricular Tachycardia During Spinal Cord Stimulator Trial
Jarna Shah, MD; Rena Beckerly, MD

There is high level evidence supporting the efficacy and safety of spinal cord stimulators (SCS) in cases of refractory lower back pain. More than 50% of patients with chronic pain conditions have sustained reduction in pain following SCS placement. SCS implantation in patients on chronic anticoagulation poses several dilemmas. Concerns that arise for SCS implantation in patients taking antiplatelet agents or anticoagulants include the risk of epidural hematoma leading to paralysis. This case examines the process of determining SCS candidacy for a patient potentially requiring chronic anticoagulation.
