  Purpose

This study aims to compare the alternative current and the direct current signal changes of photoplethysmography between both feet during one side lumbar sympathetic block.

The hypothesis is that signal changes occur earlier than other indices to decide whether it is successful following lumbar sympathetic block on only one-side.


Condition Intervention Phase
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Procedure: lumbar sympathetic block
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

Further study details as provided by Seoul National University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Index of sympathetic block [ Time Frame: 1 minute at intervals from baseline through end of procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    change of slope of signals of the alternative current and the direct current from foot

    The baseline is defined as the point of surgical drap.

    The end of procedure is decided when the temperature of foot is increased more than 2 degrees from baseline within 20 minutes after local anesthetics injection



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • skin temperature changes [ Time Frame: 1 minute at intervals during procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    foot temperature change from baseline

  • electrocardiogram [ Time Frame: 1 minute at intervals from baseline through end of procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    heart rate variability measurement


Estimated Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: September 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
