Intrathecal pumps classified under intrathecal drug delivery system are used to deliver small amounts of drug directly to the patient’s spinal fluid for relieving chronic back or spinal pain. This small programmed battery powered pump is surgically implanted under the subcutaneous tissue of the abdomen and is connected to a catheter tunneled to the site of spinal entry. Such devices consist of a computerized pain pump, a catheter and a reservoir which needs to be refilled every 1 to 3 months.
