Singla P, Kohan LR
A A Pract. 2020 Mar 01; 14(5):149-151.
PMID: 31977322.


Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a regional neuropathic pain syndrome. Excruciating pain often interferes with patients' ability to function normally. Spinal cord stimulators (SCS) have been effective in treating pain along with signs of sympathetic overactivity in patients with CRPS. Implantation of SCS is a high-risk interventional procedure with the potential for serious bleeding and neurological consequences in the spine. Meticulous evaluation and careful optimization are needed in patients with bleeding disorders.
