The following bibliography references SPR Therapeutics pain management system publications to date. Some of these publications may describe findings that are not contemplated by the currently FDA-cleared indications for use for the product. The intent of providing this bibliography is to inform physicians of research performed using the SPRINT(TM) PNS System. This information is not provided with the intent to promote the SPRINT System beyond its FDA-cleared indications for use, which are as follows: ‘The SPRINT Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) System is indicated for up to 30 days in the back and/or extremities for: i) Symptomatic relief of chronic, intractable pain, post-surgical and post-traumatic acute pain; ii) Symptomatic relief of post-traumatic pain; and iii) Symptomatic relief of post-operative pain. The SPRINT PNS System is not intended to treat pain in the craniofacial region.’
