CLINICAL OUTCOMES: DTM™ SCS RCT SPINAL CORD STIMULATION

LONG-TERM AND SUSTAINED OUTCOMES1

The DTM™ Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) RCT1 is a prospective, post-market, multicentre, randomised control trial comparing the efficacy of DTM™ SCS for back pain compared to conventional SCS. Both therapies were evaluated using the Intellis™ neurostimulator.

Primary Objective: The effectiveness of DTM™ SCS in reducing back pain as compared to conventional SCS for the treatment of chronic, intractable back pain measured by the percentage of responders (≥50% reduction in pain) at three months post device activation.

Secondary Objectives evaluated through 12 months:

  • Comparison of the percentage of individual responders between the test and control groups in a statistical test of superiority
  • Comparison of back and leg pain relief as measured by VAS
  • Frequency of treatment-related adverse events

Additional secondary outcomes were also collected and evaluated and will be reported in the future. The frequency, type, seriousness and severity of adverse events, including study-related AEs, demonstrated a risk profile in line with SCS therapy.

NOTE: Data presented is from twelve months follow up.

84%

Highest back pain responder rate

reported at 12 months in similar RCTs*

(> 50% improvement).

* Descriptive comparison, including studies with similar design (RCT; randomisation >100 subjects; comparing 2 SCS therapies; with at least 12-months follow up) and patient populations (inclusion/exclusion criteria; baseline demographics) with back pain responder rates reported. This is not based on a statistical analysis of outcomes between studies.
