An interdisciplinary setting with comprehensive approach (pharmacologic, interventional, and psychological in conjunction with rehabilitation pathway) has been proposed as protocol in the practical management of CRPS to facilitate further research to enhance clinical outcome including quality of life.

Neurological findings in complex regional pain syndromes--analysis of 145 cases.

The detailed knowledge of clinical features of CRPS could help physicians early to recognize the disease and thus to improve therapy outcome.
