Brief Summary:
24-SMI-2014 is a Randomised Controlled Trial with an optional one way cross-over comparing Conservative Medical Management (CMM) to treatment with the Axium neurostimulator + CMM. Subject population is chronic inguinal pain refractory to previous surgical intervention (neurectomy).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Inguinal Pain Refractory to Previous Surgical Intervention (Neurectomy) Device: Implantation with the commercially available Axium neurostimulator Not Applicable

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 18 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomised Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy of the Spinal Modulation Axium® NeuroStimulator THerapy as a Treatment for Persistent INGuinal Pain Following Surgical Intervention: SMASHING
Study Start Date : December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date : October 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
No Intervention: Conservative Medical Management
Continued medical management restricted to exclude interventional pain treatments
Active Comparator: Axium Group
As the CMM group but also treated with Dorsal Root Ganglion stimulation using the Axium neurostimulator
Device: Implantation with the commercially available Axium neurostimulator

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of subjects experiencing ≥50% reduction in average daily pain intensity in the Axium Group as compared to the CMM only group using an eleven point (0-10) numerical pain rating scale (NPRS) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
