The complex regional pain syndrom is a weighty disease that often results in a lifelong disability. Mostly this disease appears unilateral after comparatively mundane fractures or operations. In early stages CRPS shows inflammatory processes. These inflammatory components can be seen as edema and vasodilatation. These inflammatory processes lead us to the hypothesis that selective COX-2-inhibitors might help patients with CRPS.
What is Expanded Access?
||Efficiacy of the Selctive COX-2-inhibitor Parecoxibe on the Pathological Low Pressure Pain Threshold (PPT) of Patients With Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
90mg Parecoxib i.v. two times a day, two days in a row
Other Name: Dynastat
NaCl i.v. two times a day, two days in an row
Other Name: sodium chlorid
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
- Patients with saved diagnosis of CRPS of the upper extremity based on the current used criteria for diagnosis plus a positiv 3-phase-sceletal-scintilgraphy, if they show pathological PPT-values in QST on the ipsilateral site (Z-values > 2 in age- and gender-based Z-transformation of the raw values)• age ≥ 18 years• Existence of an age-based normal creatinin-clearance (calculated with a defined formula)
Important cardiovascular illness for the purpose of heart failure (NYHA II - IV), coronary heart disease (CHD), peripheral artery occlusive disease (PAOD) or unstable hypertension (values constantly over 140/90 mm Hg)
