Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is classified into two similar forms termed as CRPS type 1 (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy or RSD) and CRPS type 2 (Causalgia
The ACCURATE IDE study of Abbott's DRG therapy was the largest clinical trial to date evaluating patients with complex regional pain syndrome or causalgia
The ACCURATE IDE study of Abbott's DRG therapy was the largest clinical trial to date evaluating patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or causalgia
. The ACCURATE study, which was used to gain FDA approval, showed DRG therapy provided significant pain relief to eight out of 10 people at 12 months.
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), previously known as shoulder-hand syndrome, causalgia
, Sudek's atrophy, and also most recently as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), is an umbrella term for a collection of clinical signs and symptoms reflecting painful neurological dysfunction.
Rats with CCI are one of the most commonly employed animal models of neuropathic pain, as CCI simulates the symptoms of chronic nerve compression that correspond to causalgia
or complex regional pain syndrome in human patients (6).

, brachial plexopathy, phantom limb pain, infantile colic, glaucoma, dysmenorrhea, neremesis gravidarum, unexplained fetal wastage (repetitive miscarriages), post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disease, and possibly many others.
Historically, CRPS has been called causalgia
, algodystrophy, Sudeck's atrophy, or reflex sympathetic dystrophy (Tan et al., 2008).

CRPS is classified as either type I, also referred to as "reflex sympathetic dystrophy," or type II, "causalgia
," which develops after confirmed injury to a peripheral nerve.
