This method can be chosen because of the preference of the surgeon or can be an option based on clinical scenarios that develop based on patient needs and anatomy. Unidirectional current, efficient energy delivery, and enhanced lead stability are all reasons to consider the paddle lead approach in treating patients with difficult pain syndromes. Device selection may continue to evolve as the availability of first-generation percutaneous paddles, new paresthesia-free devices and mechanisms such as high-frequency and burst stimulation, and new targets such as the dorsal root ganglion continue to be added to the neuromodulation armamentarium.
