    Default (Abst.) Intrathecal baclofen therapy in stiff-person syndrome

    I saw this and thought it might be of interest. From PubMed, March 14, 2018, it's about intrathecal baclofen therapy in SPS:

    Good spotting agate. A guy at my infusion center has one. It has to be revised periodically under anesthesia. It helps and it’s not without risk. When oral Baclofen doses are ineffective, a pump can be recommended.

    Some pts with SPS develop locked in Syndrome with anesthesia. Terrifying.
