Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

This young girl had met another CRPS patient in a pain management program she went to, who was considering coming for treatment in Italy. Both families ended up organizing their arrival at the same period of time, so the girls go to meet again during their infusions at the clinic here in Italy.

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

FEBRUARY 2023 (3 months after Neridronate treatment): The patient had referred improvements from the 2nd week after treatment already. Her pain levels had dropped drastically, and her flares-up were getting further and further away.

MAY 2023(6 months after Neridronate treatment): the patient has had amazing results from the treatment and confirms a complete remission of all symptoms.

Conclusion

Remission is the best-case scenario for CRPS patients undergoing the Neridronate infusions and the 360° treatment plan. Is has been seen in many patients, with permanent type of results, as the treatment does not have to be repeated. This case is one of the many lucky patients reaching remission, even after fighting the condition for a year and a half.
