The Valencia consensus-based adaptation of the IASP complex regional pain syndrome diagnostic criteria


Goebel, Andreas; Birklein, Frank; Brunner, Florian; Clark, J David; Gierthmühlen, Janne; Harden, Norman; Huygen, Frank; Knudsen, Lone; McCabe, Candy; Lewis, Jenny; Maihöfner, Christian; Magerl, Walter; Moseley, G Lorimer; Terkelsen, Astrid; Thomassen, Ilona; Bruehl, Stephen (2021). The Valencia consensus-based adaptation of the IASP complex regional pain syndrome diagnostic criteria. Pain, 162(9):2346-2348.

Abstract

The new IASP diagnostic criteria for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) (aka “the Budapest Criteria”3; Table 1) have improved the diagnostic specificity for CRPS while maintaining good sensitivity. Internationally, these criteria are now in common use. The IASP CRPS Special Interest Group convened a workshop of CRPS experts in Valencia/Spain in September 2019 to review perceived ambiguities in the diagnostic text and issues identified in applying these criteria in both the research and clinical contexts. After this review, workshop attendees discussed and reached a consensus regarding adaptations to the diagnostic taxonomy text. This process resulted in pragmatic updates to CRPS assessment instructions and the associated text in the IASP taxonomy. The wording of the diagnostic criteria themselves was not altered so as to avoid invalidating the criteria.
