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)

3. Step length, contact time, peak vertical ground reaction force, impulse, and weight acceptance rate all decreased significantly post-intervention. Step rate increased significantly.. 4. At the one-year follow-up, 8 of the 10 patients reported that they were running a minimum of 5 km two to three times per week. The two exceptions were due to a torn ACL suffered while playing soccer, and a sprained ankle - neither of these individuals reported running limitations prior to the subsequent injuries. Mean 2-mile run times were significantly faster at the one-year follow-up.. 5. All patients reported that they were able to participate in sports without limitation following the intervention.. 6. Perhaps most importantly, none of the patients required a fasciotomy.. The results of this study are striking in that they are so uniformly positive, which somewhat overcomes the limitation of a small sample size and lack of a control group.

Running might sound like a uncomplicated activity to take up to increase your fitness. However, it's not quite as straightforward as it may seem with some scientific studies finding that up to three-quarters of runners experience an exercise related injury each year. Depending upon how serious that overuse injury is and how it is treated, many runners just give up and don't continue to run. The reasons for running overuse injury are multifactorial but are related to issues such as carrying out too much running too soon before allowing your body to adjust to the increased degrees of running. Bad running footwear with characteristics which do not match up with those of the runners requirements may also be an issue. Disorders of foot biomechanics and the running technique may also be issues at increasing the probability for an injury.. A good example of a running injury is anterior compartment syndrome. There is fibrous fascia surrounding muscles that hold the muscles in place. If that ...

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 ...
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Missed compartment syndrome presents a high risk for ED litigation. To reduce risks: remember that compartment syndrome is a clinical diagnosis, and is made based on exam; be very suspicious when the patient is in pain that seems out of proportion to the injury; ensure the involved extremity is iced, elevated, and immobilized and seek prompt surgical consultation. Compartment syndrome is one of the few true orthopedic emergencies seen in the ED, and the consequences can be dire.
The nerve of the anterior compartment of thigh is the femoral nerve.[2] Innervation for the quadriceps muscles come from the posterior division of the femoral nerve, while the anterior division (which contains cutaneous as well as muscular components) gives a lateral and a medial branch, the second being responsible for the innervation of the sartorius muscle.[4] The iliacus and the psoas major and psoas minor muscles, sometimes considered part of the anterior compartment, do not share the same innervation. Whereas the iliacus is innervated by the femoral nerve, the psoas is innervated by ventral rami of L1-L3.[2] ...

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 ...
