Reflex Sympathetic Distrophy

P Ghosh
It is proposed that primary atrophic rhinitis belongs to a group of conditions under the heading 'Reflex Sympathetic Distrophy Syndrome'. This leads to decalcification of the turbinals, as in Sudeck's atrophy. Collapse of the decalcified turbinals is brought about by the impact of the inspiratory stream, and this is followed by atrophic changes. Based on this hypothesis, a new operation ('Vestibuloplasty') has been devised in order to direct the stream away from the turbinals and to dissipate the force of the stream so that its impact on the turbinals is minimized...

Treatment with interferent current has been applied to 150 patients having Sudeck dystrophy (in 133 cases developed after bone fractures,in 12 cases after distortion and luxation and in 5 cases after phlegmon etc.). It has been established that the normalization of the X-ray in Sudeck distrophy of the first degree takes about 30 days, in the second degree it goes in parallel with the clinical recovery and in the third degree it takes two to four months at an average. A great advantage of the interferent current treatment is that it can be applied as a dispensary treatment in delayed callus-formation and metal osteosynthesis...
