This study set out to obtain an expert agreed priority list of diagnostic and follow-up parameters in the diagnosis and management of CRPS I Using a two round Delphi survey. Thirty-two diagnostic and 23 follow-up listings and ratings of 13 experts were available for analysis. The article reports the parameters that the experts agreed on in three domains (clinical presentation, further examinations and follow-up). The authors conclude that this expert survey conveys an agreed set of relevant diagnostic parameters of CRPS I and proposes that in follow-up examinations treatment success should be based on restoration of those manifestations.
