materials without written permission from JNSPG. 2015 Introduction No treatment exists to restore lost brain function after stroke. Animal studies demonstrate that brain transplantation of SB623, a human modified bone marrow derived stromal cell, after experimental stroke can improve neurologic outcome. This clinical study is the first North American trial of intraparenchymal transplantation of bone marrow derived cell therapy for chronic stroke patients. Methods This is a two center open-label safety, dose escalation feasibility study. Stereotactic

permanent thrombotic and hemorrhagic events. Clopidogrel therapy ≤ 6 months is associated with higher rates of thrombotic events. Loading doses of ASA and clopidogrel were associated with decreased incidence of hemorrhagic events. PFT did not have any significant association with symptomatic events.

: Chronic daily headache is a considerable source of morbidity for patients and also carries an enormous economic burden. Patients who fail standard medication regimens lack well-defined therapies, and neurostimulation is an emerging option for these patients. The purpose of this study was to analyze the cost utility of implantable neurostimulation for treatment of headache. Methods: We utilized the Thompson Reuters Marketscan Database to identify individuals diagnosed with headache disorders who underwent percutaneous neurostimulation. Healthcare expenditures for

myelopathy secondary to scar tissue around the electrode. At surgery thick scar tissue was resected, and the patient's neurological symptoms improved. The histological examination confirmed fibrosis, and microbiological studies excluded chronic infection. Scarring around SCS electrodes should be considered as a late complication and as a possible cause of the tolerance phenomenon. Methods: Describe the different types/insertion points of SCS. Description of the different diagnosis/patient conditions that SCS are used to treat. Objectives: 1. Describe the
