Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

This woman had tried about 5 different treatment plans, none of which helped with her condition. She was about to lose hope and was even talking about amputation, when she found Neridronate. She told us she wanted to come “as a last hope”, we welcomed her 2 months after.

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)
