Dr. Hooshmands RSD Book Cover


Chronic Pain: Reflex sympathetic Dystrophy Prevention and Management, is the first book devoted to the subject of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). The book presents a new classification for the different stages of RSD and features the most comprehensive coverage of the literature on RSD and its related aspects. Qualitative and quantitative differences between natural endorphins and synthetic narcotics are described for the first time, as are long-term follow-ups on sympathectomy patients. Other topics considered include thermographic methods for the diagnosis of RSD, the role of ACTH in the management of chronic pain, and comparisons between the effects of ACTH and those of corticosteroids. The mechanism of development of RSD is clarified through an extensive collection of drawings and anatomical pictures. The book also explains why sympathectomy fails, but nerve block and physiotherapy is successful in the treatment of RSD.

Chronic Pain: Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Prevention and Management,  is an important reference for neurologists, neurosurgeon, physiatrists, thermographers, anesthesiologists, orthopedic surgeons, interns, and students interested in the topic.
