Wrist fracture is considered a typical initiating trauma for complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS I).However, few studies have comprehensively evaluated factors associated with the occurrence of CRPS I after the surgical treatment of a distal radius fracture. This study was performed to evaluate factors associated with the occurrence of CRPS I after the surgical treatment of a distal radius fracture.
