mable systems to provide patient- con- trolled relief of pain in precisely targeted regions. With these improvements in hard- ware, the use of Peripheral Nerve Field Stimulation (PNFS) appears to have an untapped potential for providing patients with pain relief for a wider range of under- lying conditions than was previously be- lieved possible. We present three cases, each with a different etiology of chronic abdominal pain: one with inguinal neuralgia, one with chronic pancreatitis, and one with pain fol- lowing liver transplant. Each patient was refractory to conventional medical ap- proaches. For all three patients, PNFS pro- vided significant relief from pain, enabling patients to decrease or discontinue their opioid medications and to enjoy signifi - cant improvement in their quality of life. We conclude that PNFS is a safe, ef- fective and minimally invasive treatment that may be used successfully for a wide variety of indications including chronic ab- dominal pain.
