Two patients with incapacitating symptoms from restless legs syndrome, not adequately responding to conventional treatment with dopaminergic drugs, were implanted with a pump device (Isomed®) for intrathecal delivery of morphine and bupivacaine. The treatment resulted in total resolution of all symptoms with few side effects.
