Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) management includes specific detail with concurrent, interdependent, and sequentrial increments. We assesed with totally resistant CRPS type 2 who remain in severe pain and disability despite all other therapies. Among one of them, operated cervical and low thoracic specify spinal cord stimualtion (SCS), 1.5year interval. Method: A 42-year-male patient had spinal cord injury after fall down. All extremities pain (esp. Both legs pain) was severe and CRPS symptom was developed, 10year later.
All treatment was not effective for him, he received low thoracic spinal cord stimulation operation in January-2006. His symptom was improved from visual analogue scale (VAS) 10 to VAS 3. But, both wrists and hands pain was aggravated and then. So, he received many therapies, but it was not effective. He received low cervical spinal cord stimulation in July-2007. His VAS was improved from 10 to 5.
SCS is very effective for intractable CRPS patients.
Key Words: Complex regional pain syndrome, Spinal cord stimulation, Pain.
