Unimuscular neuromuscular insult of the leg in partial anterior compartment syndrome in a patient with combined fractures. (1/23)

A complicated case of ipsilateral fractures of the left femur and tibia after a road traffic accident is reported. The patient presented with numbness of the first web of his left foot and contracture of the extensor hallucis longus muscle, with fixed length deformity after intramedullary nailing of the femur and tibia. The extensor digitorum longus and tibialis anterior muscles were spared. Tinel's sign could be elicited at the mid-portion of the anterior compartment of the injured leg. This indicated that the distal half of the anterior tibial nerve (deep peroneal nerve), together with the extensor hallucis muscle of the anterior compartment of the leg, had been damaged. The subsequent management of this patient is described.  (+info)

Acute compartment syndrome of the anterior thigh following quadriceps strain in a footballer. (2/23)

A rare case is presented of acute anterior compartment syndrome in the thigh of a footballer caused by an acute quadriceps strain, exacerbated by poor first aid and alcohol ingestion. Decompressive fasciotomy with subsequent split skin grafting of the wound defect resulted in a satisfactory outcome. The diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion lest it be overlooked with inevitably disastrous consequences.  (+info)

A spontaneous compartment syndrome in a patient with diabetes. (3/23)

A compartment syndrome is an orthopaedic emergency which can result from a variety of causes, the most common being trauma. Rarely, it can develop spontaneously and several aetiologies for spontaneous compartment syndrome have been described. We describe a patient with diabetes who developed a spontaneous compartment syndrome. The diagnosis was delayed because of the atypical presentation.  (+info)

Normal leg compartment pressures in adult Nigerians using the Whitesides method. (4/23)

In Caucasians, the range of normal intracompartmental pressure of the leg is from 0 mmHg to 15 mmHg. In the literature, such measurements have not been done in Africa to identify normal leg intracompartmental pressures. We have sought to identify the normal range of pressures in such a population of Nigerians, and to demonstrate the reproducibility of the Whitesides injection technique with materials that are easily available in most hospitals so that compartment syndromes could be identified promptly and inexpensively in developing countries. We performed a 16-month hospital-based prospective study at Wesley Guild Hospital in Ilesa, Osun State, Nigeria, to measure the intracompartmental pressures in the anterior and deep posterior compartments of 49 contralateral uninjured legs of patients with closed contralateral tibial fractures, measured at presentation. The Whitesides infusion technique was used with the aim of determining the normal range of compartmental pressure in Nigerians. The anterior compartment pressures ranged from 3 mmHg to 18 mmHg with a mean 7.6 +/- 2.6 mmHg. The pressure in the deep posterior compartment ranged from 3 mmHg to 14 mmHg with mean of 7.4 +/- 2.7 mmHg. The values are similar to those reported in the literature. There was no statistically significant difference between the pressures in the two compartments (p = 0.668).  (+info)

Acute compartment syndrome. Effect of dermotomy on fascial decompression in the leg. (5/23)

Prompt surgical decompression is the only means of preventing the late sequelae of ischaemic contracture in post-traumatic compartment syndromes. However, controversy exists regarding the length of dermotomy required for adequate decompression in the lower extremity. This study investigated the skin envelope as a potential contributing factor. Wide fascial releases were performed through limited 8 cm incisions in eight cases of post-traumatic lower extremity compartment syndrome. In nine of 29 compartments the pressure remained greater than 30 mmHg. Lengthening the skin incisions to an average of 16 cm decreased intracompartmental pressures significantly. This study documents the skin envelope as a contributing factor in acute compartment syndromes of the leg. The use of generous skin incisions is supported and the need for intra-operative compartment pressure measurements in the treatment of this condition is emphasised.  (+info)

Compartment pressures after intramedullary nailing of the tibia. (8/23)

Intracompartmental pressures of 66 patients with 67 tibial fractures treated by intramedullary nailing were monitored. There was no difference in the pressures recorded between the different Tscherne fracture types, between open and closed fractures, between low energy and high energy injuries or between fractures dealt with early and those not treated until more than 24 hours after injury. The overall incidence of acute compartment syndrome was 1.5%. No patient developed any sequelae of compartment syndrome. We conclude that intramedullary nailing does not increase the incidence of acute compartment syndrome in tibial fractures and that delay does not reduce the risk of raised compartment pressures.  (+info)

The dysferlinopathies comprise a group of untreatable muscle disorders including limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2B, Miyoshi myopathy, distal anterior compartment syndrome, and rigid spine syndrome. As with other forms of muscular dystrophy, adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene transfer is a particularly auspicious treatment strategy, however the size of the DYSF cDNA (6.5 kb) negates packaging into traditional AAV serotypes known to express well in muscle (i.e. rAAV1, 2, 6, 8, 9). Potential advantages of a full cDNA versus a mini-gene include: maintaining structural-functional protein domains, evading protein misfolding, and avoiding novel epitopes that could be immunogenic. AAV5 has demonstrated unique plasticity with regards to packaging capacity and recombination of virions containing homologous regions of cDNA inserts has been implicated in the generation of full-length transcripts. Herein we show for the first time in vivo that homologous recombination following AAV5.DYSF gene transfer leads to

A lot of other doctors didnt share my opinion. In the letters to the editor section in the next weeks issue, one specialist after another sounded off on the family doctors obvious incompetence. The orthopedic surgeon belittled him for misdiagnosing an anterior compartment syndrome; a cardiologist barraged him for mishandling an obvious case of torsades de pointes arrhythmia; the obstetrician condemned him for incorrectly calculating fetal viability and, in effect, performing an inadvertent abortion of a perfectly viable fetus..

The dysferlinopathies comprise a group of untreatable muscle disorders including limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2B, Miyoshi myopathy, distal anterior compartment syndrome, and rigid spine syndrome. As with other forms of muscular dystrophy, adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene transfer is a particularly auspicious treatment strategy, however the size of the DYSF cDNA (6.5 kb) negates packaging into traditional AAV serotypes known to express well in muscle (i.e. rAAV1, 2, 6, 8, 9). Potential advantages of a full cDNA versus a mini-gene include: maintaining structural-functional protein domains, evading protein misfolding, and avoiding novel epitopes that could be immunogenic. AAV5 has demonstrated unique plasticity with regards to packaging capacity and recombination of virions containing homologous regions of cDNA inserts has been implicated in the generation of full-length transcripts. Herein we show for the first time in vivo that homologous recombination following AAV5.DYSF gene transfer leads to
Acute compartment syndrome of the extremities is well known, but diagnosis can be challenging. Ineffective treatment can have devastating consequences, such as permanent dysaesthesia, ischaemic contractures, muscle dysfunction, loss of limb, and even loss of life. Despite many studies, there is no consensus about the way in which acute extremity compartment syndromes should be diagnosed. Many surgeons suggest continuous monitoring of intracompartmental pressure for all patients who have high-risk extremity injuries, whereas others suggest aggressive surgical intervention if acute compartment syndrome is even suspected.. ...

Compartment syndrome occurs when volume (usually edema and/or blood) accumulates in a confined osseofascial space to the extent that delivery of oxygen to tissues is compromised. It is most common with orthopedic trauma (40% tibial shaft, 18% forearm, also femur and ankle) although 23% are caused by soft tissue trauma with no fracture. Compartment syndromes have also been associated with burns, reperfusion injury, prolonged limb compression, and even drug overdose. If untreated, compartment syndrome can lead to permanent neurologic damage, muscular damage, and loss of limb.. The classic signs are the five ps - pulselessness, pallor, paralysis, paresthesia, and pain (often out of proportion to the clinical situation) By the time a patient is experiencing the 6 Ps, the risk of morbidity after fasciotomy is already very high, and ischemic injury is likely already be occurring. Peripheral compartment syndrome should be suspected early in cases where pain is out of proportion to the amount of ...

Abstract:. We detail a rare cause of forearm compartment syndrome that occurred in an 18-year-old patient who presented with a Glasgow Coma Scale of 13/15 after a mixed drug overdose and subsequently required intubation. She suffered extravasation of her propofol infusion, which resulted in intrinsic compression within her forearm muscle compartments. Fortunately, the diagnosis of compartment syndrome was made swiftly and the patient was taken to theatre within 3 h where she underwent an emergency forearm fasciotomy. She made an uneventful recovery and at follow-up her wounds had healed well with no associated morbidity or loss of function. The learning points of this study highlight the importance of thoroughly understanding the signs and symptoms of compartment syndrome while maintaining a high index of suspicion. In addition to a thorough history and examination, consideration of the potential underlying causes allows for a swifter diagnosis and a quicker transition to theatre.. Thank you to ...
So I received an email from a friend doing a project on Compartment Syndrome. She is majoring in Physical Therapy and wanted to ask me a few questions.

Did they have you do Pre-surgery physical therapy to strengthen your legs? I didnt have any pre surgery physical therapy. I just saw the orthopedic surgeon, he had a pretty good idea it was Compartment Syndrome so I went in to have the pressure test done. The put needles into each compartment to test the pressure and then took them out. I then ran on the treadmill until my pain was at its highest point and they immediately put me on the table and put the needles into each compartment again to measure the pressure. The pressure in my compartments were so drastically high and different than the starting pressure that we knew right then I did have it and that I ...

Sorry I didnt clarify which compartments were involved. Bilateral means both legs. As for compartments, I had all four compartments on both legs (anterior, posterior, lateral, and deep posterior). True, it is not necessary to have surgery for anterior CS, unless it doesnt respond to other types of treatment. I know some chiro docs can do wonders.. Because I had both legs affected, they had to do the surgeries separately. When I recovered from one enought to walk without pain, they did the other one. Unfortunately, even though I had a great surgeon, the surgery was not successful, so it had to be repeated a couple years later.. Even after the second round of surgeries, I was marginally better, but still in constant pain during my run. I could run, but only with massive doses of ibuprofen, and I couldnt run very far. Cross training, for the most part, did not hurt (of course, it depended on the sport; I could not do, for example, the revolving staircase). To some extent, I learned to live with ...

Compartment Syndrome occurs when a part of the body - or compartment - produces more pressure than the compartment can handle. If not diagnosed and treated promptly, this condition can result in amputation or even death. Delay in diagnosis, which often causes permanent injury, can result in a medical malpractice claim. Compartment Syndrome is generally an orthopedic emergency, and because the consequences are often dire, there is a high risk for medical malpractice.. This syndrome is either caused by injury or by certain types of surgery. Compartment syndrome can occur in any area of the body with closed compartments. The lower leg is the most likely compartment to develop acute compartment syndrome, followed by the forearm, thigh, and arm. Abdominal, buttocks, hands and feet compartment syndrome is also quite common.. If you or someone you care about developed compartment syndrome that either was not treated or not treated promptly due to failed diagnosis, you may have a medical malpractice ...

The syndrome is more likely to evolve in round, fusiform muscles than in flat, thin muscles with a thin epimysium. 26 High intraperitoneal pressure impairs blood supply of abdominal organs by reducing local perfusion pressure. Acute abdominal compartment syndrome is defined as increased intraperitoneal hydrostatic pressure to levels that impair blood perfusion pressure of intraperitoneal and retroperitoneal organs, and induce respiratory and cardiovascular dysfunction.

This approach is recommended by more than one poison center, but it is true that there are no data to support it. Anecdotal experience, including my own, has shown that the use of mannitol may quickly reduce a marginal compartment pressure (e.g. 40 - 50 mm Hg) to below 30 mm Hg, thereby avoiding fasciotomy in some cases.. This approach combines medical and surgical treatment in order to provide maximal therapy for a limb-threatening condition. Although the process culminates in fasciotomy, there is really no evidence that fasciotomy is effective. Unlike the situation in compartment syndrome following trauma, snakebite would be expected to have two pathophysiological processes developing simultaneously. First, the venom causes cellular injury and produces swelling. Second, as the swelling increases, the intracompartmental pressure has increased above the perfusion pressure of the compartment. Thus, simply correcting the second component does not necessarily improve the first. After all, the ...

Compartment syndrome is a serious complication of musculoskeletal injury. Compartment syndrome results from an increase in pressure inside a compartment which comprises of muscles and nerves and is enclosed by fascia, fascia is inelastic and does not expand to increased volume or pressure. When the compartment pressure increases, nerves and then muscles become compressed resulting in decreased blood flow and tissue perfusion, muscle ischemia and loss or altered sensation. Compartment syndrome is a surgical emergency to relieve the pressure or reduce volume within the compartment, which will preserve blood supply, tissue perfusion and function. Early recognition of neurovascular deterioration is crucial in limb salvage or survival.. The medical team should be contacted immediately as soon as compartment syndrome is suspected.. Indications of compartment syndrome. ...
Background Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome (CECS) presents as exertional pain in the lower limb presumed to be a result of elevated intramuscular compartment pressure (IMCP) although this has never been proven. Doubt exists regarding the validity of the diagnostic criteria for CECS, the role of IMCP and the outcomes from surgical management. An alternative biomechanical condition, Anterior Biomechanical Overload Syndrome (ABOS), was proposed to account for the symptoms of CECS and a programme of gait re-education (GRE) was introduced although no primary research has been carried out to investigate the predisposing biomechanical and anthropometric factors for CECS. Methods Case-control studies investigated the anthropometric, biomechanical and IMCP differences between CECS cases and asymptomatic controls. A post-surgical study evaluated the role of IMCP and a longitudinal study investigated the effectiveness of GRE and the nature of resultant biomechanical changes. Results Cases were ...

BACKGROUND: Post-exercise pain is an uncommon symptom in young, healthy adults. Rest and avoidance of exercise are frequently ineffective and poorly accepted by young, active and otherwise healthy individuals. METHODS: A total of 123 patients with extremity muscle pain, swelling and paraesthesia during the last 10 years were evaluated from a prospective database with compartment pressures and selectively evaluated with Doppler ultrasound and angiography. RESULTS: Patients were young (average 28 years) with long duration of symptoms (average 3.5 years), affecting both upper limbs (3), and lower limbs (120), and 80% were bilateral. Eighty-six were male (70%). All of them were taking part either in active sports or exercise programmes, mostly athletics (49%). Common symptoms were isolated muscle pain in the ...

When compartment syndrome is caused by repetitive use of the muscles, as in a cyclist, it is known as chronic compartment syndrome (CCS).[10][11] This is usually not an emergency, but the loss of circulation can cause temporary or permanent damage to nearby nerves and muscles. The cause of compartment syndrome is due to excess pressure on or within the muscle compartments. This pressure can occur for many different reasons, many are due to injuries. Injuries cause the swelling of tissue. The swelling of the tissue forces pressure upon the muscle compartments, which has a limited volume. Due to this pressure, the venules and lymphatic vessels that drain the muscle compartments are compressed, and are prevented from draining. As arterial inflow continues while outflow is decreased, the pressure builds up in the muscle compartments. This pressure will eventually decrease the amount of blood flow over the capillary bed, causing the tissue to become ischaemic. The tissues will release factors and ...

Answers from trusted physicians on fibrositis syndrome. First: Chronic compartment syndrome is the same as exertional compartment syndrome. It is when the pressure from the muscle compartment in the shin is high. It causes pain in the front of the shin after activity or exercise and it typically is relieved after rest. Some patients report numbness and tingling to the front of the foot as well. It can be experienced in any kind of sport that involves running.

The muscles and organs of the hand are grouped into small compartments which are surrounded by fascia (connective tissue webs). An injury may lead to the accumulation of blood within this compartment. The walls of fascia are tough and do not expand easily to accommodate the fluid, resulting in pressure buildup within the compartment. This may impede the blood flow to the surrounding tissues and is medically referred to as Compartment Syndrome. It generally occurs after a surgery or an injury which leads to swelling in the joint ...
INTRODUCTION. Chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) is a well-recognised condition which can result in significant morbidity and limitation of activity in athletes and nonathletes alike. It is defined as an activity-related, reversible, myofascial intramuscular pressure increase, resulting in decreased tissue perfusion and abnormalities in neuromuscular function.1. It typically affects young people who are engaged in sports and usually results from overuse, poor technique or rapidly increased muscle mass following rigorous athletic training. Muscle mass is increased significantly in a short period of time, resulting in a pathological increase in the intramuscular pressure, as the compartment cannot accommodate the transient increase in volume required secondary to increased blood flow.. The pain is intermittent and might be sharp, cramp-like or burning, occurring predominantly during exercise. The level of exercise that precipitates the symptoms may vary considerably, from running a ...

Traumatic compartment syndrome is a well-known condition and usually easily recognized for its high level of suspicion. Otherwise, the Chronic Form is insidious and difficult to diagnose if the patient is not an athlete and there is no temporal correlation with excessive physical stress.. Our case is unusual because it is not very easy to place it in a specific category; the onset was acute but the predisposing factors more typical of chronic forms are easily recognizable. Moreover, the patient was not an athlete and he was at rest during the onset.. The revascularization origin, before being suspected, was excluded by echo-colo-doppler; the biopsy indicated an autoimmunogenic, parasitic or allergic myopathy.. Actually this aspect is still obscure; nevertheless, it was not confirmed by any variation in white blood cells or the presence of self-antibodies and consequently this hypothesis was rejected.. The other hypothesis derived from two specific factors: the diagnosis of type-II Diabetes ...

Your doctor might suggest imaging studies such as MRI or near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). A typical MRI scan of your legs can be used to evaluate the structure of the muscles in the compartments and rule out other possible causes of your symptoms.. A newer, special MRI scan can help assess the fluid volumes of the compartments during exercise. It has been found to be accurate in detecting compartment syndrome, and may reduce the need for the invasive compartment pressure testing.. NIRS is a newer technique that uses light wavelengths to measure tissue oxygen saturation in your blood. This helps to determine if your muscle compartment has decreased blood flow.. ...

However, there is an inherent risk of extravasation, which can cause compartment syndrome, especially when detected at a later stage. Herein, we report a rare case of compartment syndrome and skin necrosis due to extravasation, requiring emergency fasciotomy and skin graft in a 7-month-old boy who was treated with peripheral parenteral nutrition via a pressurized infusion pump. Although we cannot estimate the exact time at which extravasation occurred, the extent and degree of the wound suggest that the ischemic insult was prolonged, lasting for several hours. Pediatric clinicians and medical teams should carefully examine the site of insertion of the intravenous catheter, especially in patients receiving parenteral nutrition via a peripheral intravenous catheter with a pressurized infusion pump..

Background. Foam rolling has been shown to acutely increase range of motion (ROM) during knee flexion and hip flexion with the experimenter applying an external force, yet no study to date has measured hip extensibility as a result of foam rolling with controlled knee flexion and hip extension moments. The purpose of this study was to investigate the acute effects of foam rolling on hip extension, knee flexion, and rectus femoris length during the modified Thomas test.Methods. Twenty-three healthy participants (male = 7; female = 16; age = 22 ± 3.3 years; height = 170 ± 9.18 cm; mass = 67.7 ± 14.9 kg) performed two, one-minute bouts of foam rolling applied to the anterior thigh. Hip extension and knee flexion were measured via motion capture before and after the foam rolling intervention, from which rectus femoris length was calculated.Results. Although the increase in hip extension (change = +1.86° (+0.11, +3.61); z(22) = 2.08; p = 0.0372; Pearsons r = 0.43 (0.02, 0.72)) was not due to chance
We do not encounter abdominal compartment syndrome often in the emergency department. With that said, this diagnosis enters our differential from time to time. Consider the patient with an active arterial bleed from a liver mass with large hemoperitoneum who is transferred from an outside institution for IR embolization. His abdomen is rock solid, and his lactate is 10. While you address his hemorrhagic shock, you have to at least consider the possibility of abdominal compartment syndrome. This is a case I was involved in several months ago; IR emergently drained his hemoperitoneum given the concern for abdominal compartment syndrome.. Abdominal compartment syndrome results from a sustained increase in intraabdominal pressure. The resulting decreased perfusion pressure to the viscera leads to ischemia and organ failure. While more common in post surgical patients in the ICU, this is a diagnosis the emergency physician should be familiar with.. Risk factors in ED population (this is far from a ...

The treatment of patients with peritonitis remains an urgent problem in surgery despite the development of new surgical technologies and the success of pharmacology. Great attention has been paid lately to intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) in common peritonitis as factors of multiple organ failure syndrome (MOFS) [1-8]. However, there are no data on the performance of intra-abdominal hypertension at different pathology and the frequency of ACS. There are not enough studies on the relationship between the severity of ACS with endogenous intoxication and MODS. The purpose: we have to study the data of intra-abdominal hypertension and the frequency of in ACS patients with acute abdominal pathology. Materials and methods of research We have studied the course of disease in 97 patients with widespread peritonitis who were treated in the Civil Emergency Care Hospital in Krasnodar in 2011. The average patient age was 55,9 ± 16,7 years. The severity of the ...

  • The idea is that by having patients with CECS adopt a forefoot striking running style, they would reduce pressure in the anterior compartment where this muscle is located, reduce eccentric activity in this muscle, and thereby reduce pain and disability associated with the condition. (runblogger.com)
  • Patients with anterior CECS of the leg were followed, assessing both groups for pain, functional status and the Tegner sports activity score with comparisons at diagnosis and following treatment. (isakos.com)
  • Athletes who grip, such as rowers or motorcycle racers, may also experience CECS in the compartments of their lower arm. (sportsinjurybulletin.com)
  • Soccer players are particularly susceptible to anterior CECS after lengthy shooting drills. (sportsinjurybulletin.com)
  • This term is often mistakenly used to describe various related/proximal conditions, including Anterior Shin Splints. (wikipedia.org)
  • A severe acute compartment syndrome is a medical emergency and professional medical attention should be sought as soon as possible as long term damage to nerves or muscle can occur due to restricted blood flow. (sportsinjuryclinic.net)
  • The connective tissues that encapsulate these muscle compartments do not stretch much, and thus excessive swelling in these compartments can lead to diminished blood flow to the affected tissues, as well as compression of nerves leading to pain. (runblogger.com)
  • In severe acute cases surgery may be indicated to release the pressure in the compartment. (sportsinjuryclinic.net)
  • Anterior compartment syndrome implies development of increased pressure within the anterior compartments of the body. (symptoma.com)
  • This condition is regarded as a medical emergency and an early diagnosis with serial examination together with compartment pressure evaluation is necessary. (symptoma.com)
  • Most patients report extreme pain which may be out of proportion to the severity of injury, as the skin overlying the anterior segment ay be intact although under pressure and shows no signs of trauma. (symptoma.com)
  • In addition to physical examination, compartment pressure can be determined using various available techniques. (symptoma.com)
  • The threshold for abnormally high compartment pressure is controversial, and large-scale studies have determined significant overlap between pressure values of actual patients with control subjects . (symptoma.com)
  • Any of these muscles can experience a build up of pressure that leads to Anterior Compartment Syndrome. (twinboro.com)
  • Diffuse tightness and tenderness over the entire belly of the tibialis anterior that does not respond to elevation or pain medication can be early warning signs and suggestive of Anterior Compartment Syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • The anterior compartment syndrome taping can provide instant relief from pain by supporting the muscle. (sportsinjuryclinic.net)
  • The earliest and most important symptom that occurs in patients with all forms of compartment syndrome , including anterior, is pain , which progresses and becomes more intense over time . (symptoma.com)
  • When the external iliac artery crosses the inguinal ligament, it becomes the femoral artery , which supplies blood to the anterior compartment and is the largest blood vessel of the inferior member. (wikipedia.org)
  • Paresthesia, diminished 2-point discrimination, as well as sensory loss are neurological deficits that are often observed , while pale skin overlying the affected compartment is also a hallmark of this condition. (symptoma.com)
