I have heard of peripheral nerve stimulators used in cases before but this additional one makes it more mainstream. This one captured control with high frequency

Novel High-Frequency Peripheral Nerve Stimulator Treatment of Refractory Postherpetic Neuralgia: A Brief Technical Note.
Lerman IR(1), Chen JL, Hiller D, Souzdalnitski D, Sheean G, Wallace M, Barba D.
- refractory left supraorbital neuralgia
- preferred high-frequency paresthesia-free stimulation (HFS) at an amplitude of 6.2 mA, a frequency of 100-1200 Hz, and a pulse width of 130 μsec to low frequency which causes more paresthesia
- Pain declined from 8/10 to 1/10
Comment – exciting possibilities if they can last longterm..
