The post incisional pain is a biological complication of the spinal cord stimulation implantation. The frequency of this condition in literature reported studies ranges from 0.9% to 12%. The causes of this pain are unclear and there is no homogeneity in the reported data. The treatment of this surgical complication is not well established with several therapy proposed. Starting from our experience we stress the need for more consistent data on the frequency and on the therapies to be used.
