Centre for Pain Research, University of Bath, Bath, UK; Department of Psychology, University of Bath, Bath, UK.

There is some evidence that people with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) show reduced attention to the affected relative to unaffected limb and its surrounding space, resembling hemispatial neglect after brain injury. These neuropsychological symptoms could be related to central mechanisms of pathological pain and contribute to its clinical manifestation. However, the existing evidence of changes in spatial cognition is limited and often inconsistent. Read More

Internal Medicine, Hematology, Radiology, Natural Cure, Cologne (Köln) 50968, Germany.

Peripheral Neuropathic Pain (PNP) as well as the Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as "Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy", or "Sudeck Dystrophy", all of them have a poor prognosis. The numerous therapeutic offers are rarely accompanied by convincing success over a long duration of time. Even worse is the prognosis of a fixed dystonia which may develop in the extremities of PNP or CRPS patients. Read More

A Paradigm Shift in Managing Acute and Chronic Boutonniere Deformity: Anatomic Rationale and Early Clinical Results for the Relative Motion Concept Permitting Immediate Active Motion and Hand Use.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 03;84(3S Suppl 2):S141-S150

Sports and Occupational Rehab Center, Henrico, VA.

Background: We have utilized relative motion splinting for early motion following acute repair of boutonniere injuries, and we have developed nonoperative orthosis-based therapy for the treatment of chronic injuries. We offer our early clinical experience using relative motion flexion splinting for boutonniere deformities and explain the anatomic rationale that permits immediate active motion and hand use following acute injury or repair. For chronic boutonniere deformity, we offer a nonsurgical management method with low morbidity as a safe alternative to surgery. Read More

Topical combination of meldonium and N-acetyl cysteine relieves allodynia in rat models of CRPS-1 and peripheral neuropathic pain by enhancing NO-mediated tissue oxygenation.

J Neurochem 2020 03 27;152(5):570-584. Epub 2020 Jan 27.

Department of Anesthesia, McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada.

Local microvascular dysfunction and consequent tissue ischemia/hypoxia contribute to the symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and peripheral neuropathic pain. As nitric oxide (NO) is a key regulator of microvascular blood flow, compounds that increase it are potentially therapeutic for these pain conditions. This led us to hypothesize that the topical administration of drugs that modulate local tissue NO levels can alleviate the pain of CRPS and peripheral neuropathic pain. Read More

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

Reg Anesth Pain Med 2019 03;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 06;160(6):1261-1269

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

Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation Is Paresthesia-Independent: A Retrospective Study.

Neuromodulation 2019 Dec 30;22(8):937-942. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Abbott Laboratories, Sunnyvale, CA, USA.

Introduction: Neuromodulation is an important tool for achieving pain relief in otherwise-intractable neuropathic pain conditions. Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation, in which primary sensory neurons are stimulated prior to their entry into the spinal canal, provides treatment with high levels of dermatomal specificity and can provide advantages compared to conventional spinal cord stimulation. Although DRG stimulation can produce perceptible paresthesias, many patients operate their systems at subthreshold amplitudes that do not elicit this sensation. Read More

The serum protease network-one key to understand complex regional pain syndrome pathophysiology.

Pain 2019 06;160(6):1402-1409

Department of Neurology, University Medical Centre of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Mainz, Germany.

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) develops after fracture. The acute CRPS phenotype resembles exaggerated inflammation, which is explained by local and systemic activation of a proinflammatory network including peptides and cytokines. Epidemiologic data suggest that inactivation of the peptidase angiotensin-converting enzyme in patients treated for hypertension increases the odds to develop CRPS. Read More

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 01;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 2019 05 24;90(5):608-614. 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.
