Abstract:
Intrathecal baclofen therapy has been used in the treatment of severe, intractable spasticity resistant to oral agents in brain and spinal cord injury since 1992. A successful trial of intrathecal baclofen infusion administered with a test dose of baclofen injection via a lumbar puncture precedes the therapy and those who respond favorably in the standard screening test go on to receive intrathecal baclofen pump therapy long-term. 1,2
