Female Left Cervical Dorsal Column Stimulator Battery Replacement
This exhibit depicts the replacement of a dorsal column stimulator battery. The previous horizontal buttock incision is reopened, exposing the dorsal column stimulator. The stimulator is disconnected from the cervical lead wires, removed from the subcutaneous pocket, and the battery is replaced. The stimulator is then reconnected to the lead wires, reinserted into the subcutaneous pocket, and the incision is closed with sutures.
