Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

The patient’s father did a lot of research and found out about Neridronate online, they quickly came to Italy as he read the Neridronate treatment does its best work when administrated close to the event causing CRPS.

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)

Follow up

OCTOBER 2019 (2 months after Neridronate treatment): the patient already says her pain is close to 1 or 2. She mentions the swelling is still present but improved.

DECEMBER 2019 (4 months after Neridronate treatment): Unfortunately, the patient fell and sprained her other hand’s wrist. Positively, it did not cause any CRPS. The stress of the event has caused a flare up, but the patient said it was very short and right after that she went back to being practically pain-free. Her other symptoms are completely gone.

FEBRUARY 2020 (6 months after Neridronate treatment): The patient reports a full remission of all pain and symptoms.

Conclusion

The remission is always the result we hope for, in any patient’s case, having had CRPS for 6 months only, it was very easy to achieve for this patient.
The fact that a separate trauma during her months post-treatment did not cause a spreading of the CRPS is an incredible thing, it shows the infusions have made her body stronger.
