Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

In the patient’s city, another person suffered from CRPS (which she often calls “fate” as it is a very small city and a very rare disease). This person went to Italy 2 years prior and had seen very good results. The patient’s mother then contacted us shortly after she had talked to the previous patient of ours. 

Medical treatment the Patient underwent in Italy

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a severely painful and disabling disease for which a multitude of therapeutic interventions have been proposed. In the past two decades, only Bisphosphonates gained credibility. In recent years, more convincing evidence has become available on the use of Parenteral Neridronate. Since 2014, this drug is registered and marketed in Italy for the treatment of CRPS. To date, the only therapeutic schedule that is recognized to be able to confer benefit is the intravenous (IV) administration of 100 mg given 4 times.

4 neridronate infusions (100mg, I.v. in saline Solution 0,9% 250 ml)
