Netherlands study " The association between ACE inhibitors and the complex regional pain syndrome:possible neuro-inflammatory pathogenesis of CRPS.

Reported on PAIN JOURNAL ONLINE, the researchers concluded that "ACE inhibitor use is associated with CRPS onset". It is important to note that they found "current use of ACE inhibitors was associated with an increased risk of CRPS".

I've mentioned before that colles wrist fracture is a high risk for development of CRPS.

Knowing risk factors helps doctors more quickly diagnose conditions. More great research from the Netherlands.

Here is the link.
