The primary objective of this study is to assess the effects of varying pulse width in suprathreshold dorsal column stimulation in patients with low back pain.
This study will generate data which may allow Precision SCS devices to be used or programmed in such a way as to relieve pain while minimizing any uncomfortable sensations. This study will extend anecdotal reports into a prospective analysis of outcome data.
Patients invited to participate in this study will have recently been implanted with the Precision system, or will be eligible for SCS therapy and will have already selected therapy with the Advanced Bionics Precision system, independent of possible inclusion in this study.

Metal devices for fastening together two or more parts of dental prostheses for stabilizing or retaining them by attachment to abutment teeth. For a precision attachment for a partial denture DENTURE PRECISION ATTACHMENT is available.
A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.
A precision device used for attaching a fixed or removable partial denture to the crown of an abutment tooth or a restoration. One type is the intracoronal attachment and the other type is the extracoronal attachment. It consists of a female portion within the coronal portion of the crown of an abutment and a fitted male portion attached to the denture proper. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p85; from Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p264)
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
