A pioneering group of authors describes in this book, for the first time, the state of the art of spinal cord stimulation for chronic critical limb ischemia. This method, a progeny of pacemaking in cardiac rhythm disorders, is a promising, innovative procedure; it presents a modern challenge in treatment of endstage peripheral vascular disease or neuropathic pains. Spinal cord stimulation may have a tremendous future if it further develops to become a standard treatment in special indications
