RSD Article #2

 

THE ASSOCIATION OF PERIPHERAL NERVE COMPRESSION
AND REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY

J. J. MONSIVAIS, J. BAKER and D. MONSIVAIS

From the Hand and Microsurgery Center of El Paso, and the Orthopaedic and Hand Center, El Paso, Texas, USA

35 patients who presented with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) are reported. Peripheral nerve compression was present in 86% of the patients (30). 50% of the patients (15) had a single nerve compression, and 50% had multiple nerve compressions. The high incidence of these entrapments should alert the clinician to check for this treatable problem early in the course of RSD.
