IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION ON ITB THERAPY: Please follow your doctor's instruction closely because a sudden stop of intrathecal baclofen therapy can result in serious illness (baclofen withdrawal symptoms) such as high fever, changed mental status, muscle rigidity, and in rare cases multiple organ-system failure and death.
Intrathecal baclofen therapy is indicated for patients with severe spasticity who have not responded to conservative procedures or cannot tolerate other spasticity interventions or who require the precise dosing administration that the pump system affords (Ivanhoe, Tilton, & Francisco, 2001; Remy-Neris, Tiffreau, Bouillard, & Bussel, 2003).
