Infection, bleeding : And in many cases you can never have an MRI study again. This to me is the main problem. Patients have many problems which can only be detected by mri. They are given the stimulator to control a minor bladder problem but then if they have a stroke they cannot get an mri. This is a severe consequence which is never well explained to patients.
