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.

Complex regional pain syndrome - False hopes and miscommunications.

Autoimmun Rev 2019 Mar 11;18(3):270-278. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Clinical Immunology, University of California at Davis School of Medicine, United States. Electronic address:

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) has been considered to be an autoimmune disease and there have been clinical trials with intravenous immunoglobulin. Often the etiology of the so-called CRPS diagnosis cannot be discerned and there are no validated instruments that provide functional metrics. The term complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), coined in 1994 to describe patients in whom the pain is out of proportion to the injury, was actually a diagnosis proposed during the American Civil War, but was originally known as causalgia.

The Role of the Peripheral Nerve Surgeon in the Treatment of Pain.

Neurotherapeutics 2019 Jan;16(1):9-25

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO, USA.

Pain is a frequent cause of physician visits. Many physicians find these patients challenging because they often have complicated histories, emotional comorbidities, confusing examinations, difficult problems to fix, and the possibility of factitious complaints for attention or narcotic pain medications. As a result, many patients are lumped into the category of chronic, centralized pain and relegated to pain management. Read More

Complex regional pain syndrome and functional neurological disorders: time for reconciliation.

J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 2018 Oct 24. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, Western General Hospital, NHS Lothian and University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK

There have been many articles highlighting differences and similarities between complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and functional neurological disorders (FND) but until now the discussions have often been adversarial with an erroneous focus on malingering and a view of FND as 'all in the mind'. However, understanding of the nature, frequency and treatment of FND has changed dramatically in the last 10-15 years. FND is no longer assumed to be only the result of 'conversion' of psychological conflict but is understood as a complex interplay between physiological stimulus, expectation, learning and attention mediated through a Bayesian framework, with biopsychosocial predisposing, triggering and perpetuating inputs.

Med Hypotheses 2018 Oct 29;119:41-53. Epub 2018 Jul 29.

Hunter Pain Clinic, 91 Chatham Street, Broadmeadow, NSW 2292, Australia.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) has defied a clear unified pathological explanation to date. Not surprisingly, treatments for the condition are limited in number, efficacy and their ability to enact a cure. Whilst many observations have been made of physiological abnormalities, how these explain the condition and who does and doesn't develop CRPS remains unclear. Read More

Approach to the Patient with Disproportionate Pain.

Bull Hosp Jt Dis (2013) 2018 Jun;76(2):123-132

Faced with a patient who presents with unexplained disproportionate pain, a surgeon may be tempted to diagnose a low pain threshold, malingering, poor coping, anxiety, or other emotional condition. However, a variety of conditions must be ruled out before the orthopedist can prescribe watchful waiting. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging can detect occult fractures, acute spinal conditions or vascular occlusions, but early on are inadequate to diagnose a compartment syndrome, necrotizing fasciitis, or reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD).

Purpose Of Review: To describe the current understanding of the role of three-phase bone scintigraphy (TPBS) in the diagnosis and management of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), discuss its advantages and limitations, and present three examples of TPBS patterns typically seen in CRPS patients.

Recent Findings: CRPS is a debilitating disorder frequently presenting with pain to ordinarily non-painful stimuli, redness, swelling, following fractures, stroke, myocardial infarction, surgery, or even minor trauma, and its diagnosis, based on clinical criteria and supportive imaging findings, is difficult. Of the available adjunctive diagnostic imaging modalities, radionuclide bone scintigraphy using a TPBS protocol is the most sensitive and specific for detecting abnormalities commonly seen with this condition-classically, increased periarticular uptake on delayed phase of TPBS, with variable increased uptake on perfusion phases, depending on chronicity.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type I, a Debilitating and Poorly Understood Syndrome. Possible Role for Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields: A Narrative Review.

Pain Physician 2017 09;20(6):E807-E822

Laboratory of Preclinical and Surgical Studies, Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute, Bologna, Italy.

Background: Complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS-I), also called algodystrophy, is a complex syndrome characterized by limb pain, edema, allodynia, hyperalgesia and functional impairment of bone with a similar clinical picture of osteoporosis, including an increased release of various pro-inflammatory neuropeptides and cytokines. Several treatments have been proposed for CRPS-I, but due to the poor outcome of conventional drugs and the invasiveness of some techniques, expectations are now directed towards new resources that could be more effective and less invasive.

Objective: In the light of preclinical evidence, which underlined pulsed electromagnetic fields' (PEMFs) properties on osteoblasts (OBs), osteoclasts (OCs), and pathologies with an inflammatory profile, the present review aims to investigate whether there is a rationale for the use of PEMFs, as a combined approach, in CRPS-I.

A randomized controlled trial of amitriptyline versus gabapentin for complex regional pain syndrome type I and neuropathic pain in children.

Scand J Pain 2016 Oct 16;13:156-163. Epub 2016 Jun 16.

Pain Innovations Inc., London, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Treatment of neuropathic pain in children is challenging, and requires a multimodal approach of pharmacologic, physical, and psychological therapies; however there is little evidence to guide practice. Amitriptyline and gabapentin are first-line drugs for treating neuropathic pain in adults, yet no studies have examined their efficacy, or compared them directly, to determine which might be better for pain relief and sleep disturbance in children.

Methods: After informed consent was obtained, 34 patients aged 7-18 years diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS I) or a neuropathic pain condition were randomly allocated to receive either amitriptyline or gabapentin. Read More

Bone SPECT/CT Localizes Increased Bone Metabolism and Subsequent Bone Resorption in Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.

Clin Nucl Med 2017 Oct;42(10):784-786

From the *Department of Radiology, Saitama Municipal Hospital, Saitama; and †Department of Radiology, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

A 64-year-old man with lung cancer with a history of revascularization of the occluded right femoral artery underwent bone scintigraphy, which showed intense uptake in the distal side of the right leg. The additional SPECT/CT clarified that the uptake was predominantly increased in the epiphyses of the right ankle and foot with possible osteopenia. One month later, follow-up SPECT/CT showed the manifestation of periosteal resorption in the hypermetabolic sites with slight decrease in bone metabolism. Read More
