MedtronicNeuro
  Purpose
The therapy under investigation involves an implanted Medtronic neurostimulation system to relieve symptoms of angina pectoris pain. Electrical impulses are applied to targeted areas of the spinal cord through an implanted lead (a flexible insulated wire) that is powered by an implanted battery.

Condition Intervention Phase
Angina Pectoris Device: Spinal Cord Stimulation Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single
Official Title: STARTSTIM - Stimulation Therapy for Angina Refractory To Standard Treatments, Interventions and Medications
