Video offers information about implanted programmable baclofen pump for spasticity management.
What is intrathecal baclofen therapy? How does it fit into the spectrum of spasticity management options for people with spinal-cord injury?
A video of the Northwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury System’s SCI Forum presentation Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy for Spasticity is available in a new format to make it easier to watch. It offers in-depth information about when to consider an implanted programmable baclofen pump for spasticity management; the process of evaluation for this treatment; the pump’s potential advantages, limitations, and drawbacks; and requirements to maintain a pump.
A panel of individuals (two with SCI and one with MS) who have the implanted pumps discuss their reasons for choosing the device and what the experience has been like for them.
