Data of the last 15 years show that ST may represent an important therapeutic option for patients suffering from
chronic neuropathic pain not responsive or refractory to drug treatment.5 To our knowledge this is one of the few experiences on ST for the treatment of PLP . Therefore,we argue that ST can be fully regarded as a choice of treatment of PLP, complementary to other treatments ,surely further controlled studies are needed to confirm our results on the efficacy of ST for this type of neuropathic pain.
