Extract

Dr Wolfe1 and I2 have discussed whether a diaphragm pacing support (DPS) system is the treatment of choice for patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) in terms of technical aspects, costs, safety, ethics, and, most importantly, data to answer the primary question of what is the treatment of choice. We will further examine these arguments, beginning with the technical issues, but the emphasis must be on the available data and whether treatment outcome issues are completely clarified to this date. I again contend that they are not at this time, but like most debates, the truth is not always black and white.
