A decade of clinical experience has suggested that precentral stimulation is an option for patients with deafferentation as well as other chronic pain syndromes. Permanent complications are uncommon. More scientific evidence is warranted to understand the precise mechanism for this treatment modality. A larger organized clinical trial is desired to establish the efficacy of precentral stimulation.
