Pharmacology Update: Low-Dose Naltrexone as a Possible Nonopioid Modality for Some Chronic, Nonmalignant Pain Syndromes.

Am J Hosp Palliat Care 2019 Mar 27:1049909119838974. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

2 Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Ballad Health System, Kingsport, TN, USA.

Pain can have a devastating effect on the quality of life of patients in palliative medicine. Thus far, majority of research has been centered on opioid-based pain management, with a limited empirical evidence for the use of nonopioid medications in palliative care. However, opioid and nonopioid medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have their limitations in the clinical use due to risk of adverse effects, therefore, there is a need for more research to be directed to finding an alternative approach to pain management in comfort care setting.

J Neuroinflammation 2019 Mar 18;16(1):63. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Discipline of Anatomy & Histology, School of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Health, The University of Sydney, Room E513, Anderson Stuart Building, Sydney, NSW, 2006, Australia.

Background: Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a debilitating condition where trauma to a limb results in devastating persistent pain that is disproportionate to the initial injury. The pathophysiology of CRPS remains unknown; however, accumulating evidence suggests it is an immunoneurological disorder, especially in light of evidence of auto-antibodies in ~ 30% of patients. Despite this, a systematic assessment of all circulating leukocyte populations in CRPS has never been performed. Read More

Symptom reduction and improved function in chronic CRPS type 1 after 12-week integrated, interdisciplinary therapy.

Scand J Pain 2019 Apr;19(2):257-270

Pain Clinic, Department of Anaesthesiology, Intensive Care and Pain Medicine, Helsinki University Hospital and University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.

Background and aims Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) often recovers spontaneously within the first year, but when it becomes chronic, available rehabilitative therapies (pharmacological management, physiotherapy, and psychological intervention) have limited effectiveness. This study examined the effect of a 12-week intensive outpatient rehabilitation on pain relief and function in chronic CRPS patients. Rehabilitation program included memantine and morphine treatment (added to patient's prior pain medication) and concurrent psychological and physiotherapeutic intervention. Read More

Evaluation Through Transcutaneous Tissue Oximetry (Near Infrared Spectroscopy) of Spinal Cord Stimulation in Patients With Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type I.

Neuromodulation 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Pain Unit, Anesthesiology and Resuscitation Department, University Care Complex of Salamanca (Complejo Asistencial Universitario de Salamanca), Salamanca, Spain.

Objective: One of the physiopathological hypothesis behind complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) type I involves the deep-tissue hypoxia of the affected areas. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) appears to be effective in the treatment of these patients. We evaluated whether ESCS modifies tissue oxygen saturation (StO ) measured with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in the affected limbs in patients diagnosed with CRPS type I. Read More

CRPS: what's in a name? Taxonomy, epidemiology, neurologic, immune and autoimmune considerations.

Reg Anesth Pain Med 2019 Mar;44(3):376-387

Department of Pain Management, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH 44024, USA

This account of the condition now termed complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) spans approximately 462 years since a description embodying similar clinical features was described by Ambroise Paré in 1557. While reviewing its historical origins, the text describes why it became necessary to change the taxonomies of two clinical syndromes with similar pathophysiologies to one which acknowledges this aspect but does not introduce any mechanistic overtones. Discussed at length is the role of the sympathetic component of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and why its dysfunction has both directly and indirectly influenced our understanding of the inflammatory aspects of CRPS.

Compared to limb pain of other origin, ultrasonographic osteodensitometry reveals loss of bone density in complex regional pain syndrome.

Pain 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of Endocrine Research, Medical Hospital I, BG University Hospital Bergmannsheil Bochum, Bochum, Germany.

Local osteopenia and altered bone metabolism are major complications of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), but quantitative assessment is difficult unless using X-ray or dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Ultrasound-based measurement of bone density (UBD) is a possible alternative but has never been used to detect unilateral disease such as CRPS. Therefore, the main outcome measure of this prospective study was the diagnostic utility of UBD in patients with lower-limb CRPS. Read More
