Diagnosis of post-traumatic complex regional pain syndrome of the hand

Location: http://www.josonline.org/pdf/v14i3p284.pdf

Regulation of peripheral blood flow in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/10/116/abstract

Discussion The diminished blood flow may be caused by either sympathetic...
