Compartment Syndromes: Conditions in which increased pressure within a limited space compromises the BLOOD CIRCULATION and function of tissue within that space. Some of the causes of increased pressure are TRAUMA, tight dressings, HEMORRHAGE, and exercise. Sequelae include nerve compression (NERVE COMPRESSION SYNDROMES); PARALYSIS; and ISCHEMIC CONTRACTURE.Anterior Compartment Syndrome: Rapid swelling, increased tension, pain, and ischemic necrosis of the muscles of the anterior tibial compartment of the leg, often following excessive PHYSICAL EXERTION.Fascia: Layers of connective tissue of variable thickness. The superficial fascia is found immediately below the skin; the deep fascia invests MUSCLES, nerves, and other organs.Intra-Abdominal Hypertension: Pathological elevation of intra-abdominal pressure (>12 mm Hg). It may develop as a result of SEPSIS; PANCREATITIS; capillary leaks, burns, or surgery. When the pressure is higher than 20 mm Hg, often with end-organ dysfunction, it is referred to as abdominal compartment syndrome.Abdominal Cavity: The region in the abdomen extending from the thoracic DIAPHRAGM to the plane of the superior pelvic aperture (pelvic inlet). The abdominal cavity contains the PERITONEUM and abdominal VISCERA, as well as the extraperitoneal space which includes the RETROPERITONEAL SPACE.Syndrome: A characteristic symptom complex.Decompression, Surgical: A surgical operation for the relief of pressure in a body compartment or on a body part.

A strain is an overstretching or overexertion of some part of the musculature.MyoglobinuriaTraction: The pull on a limb or a part thereof. Skin traction (indirect traction) is applied by using a bandage to pull on the skin and fascia where light traction is required. Skeletal traction (direct traction), however, uses pins or wires inserted through bone and is attached to weights, pulleys, and ropes. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed)Nerve Compression Syndromes: Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss.

Chronic compartment syndrome affecting the lower limb: MIBI perfusion imaging as an alternative to pressure monitoring: two case reports. (1/250)

Intracompartmental pressure monitoring remains the primary method of diagnosing chronic compartment syndrome. MIBI perfusion imaging is widely available and offers a radionuclear imaging technique for diagnosing this condition. Although the results are not identical with those from pressure monitoring, MIBI may offer a useful screening test for this condition.  (+info)

Acute atraumatic compartment syndrome in the leg. (2/250)

The compartment syndrome is well recognised as occurring after trauma, but atraumatic acute compartment syndrome is less widely known. We report 3 cases in whom an acute compartment syndrome developed without major injury. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment by decompressive fasciotomy is of vital importance if limb function is to be preserved and complications avoided.  (+info)

A case of acute renal failure and compartment syndrome after an alcoholic binge. (3/250)

A 25 year old man presented with anuria and bilateral leg pain two days after an alcoholic binge. He subsequently developed rhabdomyolysis causing acute renal failure, with compartment syndrome of both lower legs. This required urgent dialysis and fasciotomy respectively within six hours of admission. He remained dialysis dependent for three weeks and only after four months was he able to weight bear on both legs. Alcohol is a leading cause of rhabdomyolysis. Early recognition and prompt treatment is essential to prevent serious complications.  (+info)

Traditional bone setter's gangrene. (4/250)

Traditional bone setter's gangrene (TBSG) is the term we use to describe the sequelae sometimes seen after treatment with native fracture splints. Twenty five consecutive complications were recorded in 25 patients aged between 5-50 years with a median age of 10 years. The major complication of the native fracture splint treatment was distal limb gangrene necessitating proximal amputations in 15 cases.  (+info)

The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (5/250)

OBJECTIVES: During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these lesions. METHODS: The questions investigated nervous symptoms, such as paraesthesia and diminishment of sensitivity, and osteoligamentous symptoms, such as pain, specifying the localisation (ulnar side, dorsal aspect of the wrist, snuff box) and the effect of the wrist position on the intensity of the pain. Clinical examination was carried out bilaterally and symmetrically. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 22 drivers reported symptoms. One suffered cramp in his hands at the end of each race and one described a typical forearm effort compartment syndrome. Six drivers had effort "osteoligamentous" symptoms: three scapholunate pain; one medial hypercompression of the wrist; two sequellae of a distal radius fracture. Seven reported nerve disorders: two effort carpal tunnel syndromes; one typical carpal tunnel syndrome; one effort cubital tunnel syndrome; three paraesthesia in all fingers at the end of a race, without any objective signs. CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first report of upper extremity disorders in competition drivers. The use of a wrist pad to reduce the effects of vibration may help to prevent trauma to the wrist in formula 1 drivers.  (+info)

Acute compartment syndrome after muscle rupture in a non-athlete. (6/250)

Acute compartment syndrome after muscle rupture, although rare, is a limb threatening condition, which warrants emergency treatment. The case of acute compartment syndrome secondary to a gastrocnemius muscle tear of the right lower leg, in a non-athlete is reported. To our knowledge, this is the only description of acute compartment syndrome due to muscle rupture in a non-athlete.  (+info)

Acute compartment syndrome. Who is at risk? (8/250)

We have analysed associated factors in 164 patients with acute compartment syndrome whom we treated over an eight-year period. In 69% there was an associated fracture, about half of which were of the tibial shaft. Most patients were men, usually under 35 years of age. Acute compartment syndrome of the forearm, with associated fracture of the distal end of the radius, was again seen most commonly in young men. Injury to soft tissues, without fracture, was the second most common cause of the syndrome and one-tenth of the patients had a bleeding disorder or were taking anticoagulant drugs. We found that young patients, especially men, were at risk of acute compartment syndrome after injury. When treating such injured patients, the diagnosis should be made early, utilising measurements of tissue pressure.  (+info)

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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
In Part Two of this blog we look at Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome (CECS) CECS There are several muscle compartments in the lower leg, each includes muscles, blood vessels and nerves enclosed within soft tissue called fascia.

I read Paik et al. well-written article on this common, easily missed and troublesome syndrome with much interest. I agree with earlier responses and the authors own reference to Aweid et al. recent work questioning the reliability of intracompartmental pressure testing.1 Furthermore, unfortunately outcomes of conservative management are rarely acceptable and whilst surgical intervention can produce satisfactory results, at least in the short-term, it is not without potential complication.. I note with delight Dr. Stranges successful running re-education therapy. Forefoot striking has previously been associated with reduced anterior compartment pressures.2 Such a gait is often adapted by barefoot runners, which has attracted much recent attention following Lieberman et al. studies in habitually barefoot individuals.3 4 Work by Diebel et al. found significant improvements in intracompartmental pressure, running distance and pain following a 6-week intervention involving instruction and ...

Acute-on-chronic exertional compartment syndrome is a rare and severe progression of the likely common and more benign chronic exertional compartment syndrome. This is a report of one 17-year-old male on a pediatric inpatient service with bilateral anterior leg pain of unknown origin. Because of the nonspecific nature of pain, a high level of suspicion is required for timely diagnosis to avoid compartment ischemia and irreversible soft tissue and nerve damage. While high-energy orthopaedic trauma, orthopaedic surgery, or closed reduction and casting are common preceding events for compartment syndrome, this patient presented with acute-on-chronic exertional compartment syndrome ...

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 ...

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.. ...

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. ISCHEMIC CONTRACTURE Ischemic contracture is a limb deformity that represents one of the final stages of muscle and nerve ...
One cause of compartment syndrome is through exercise called Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome. According to Touliopolous, CECC of the leg is a condition caused by exercise which results in increase tissue pressure within a limited fibro - osseous compartment - muscle size may increase by up to 20% during exercise (Touliopolous, 1999) When this happens pressure builds up in the tissues and muscles causing tissue ischemia (Touliopolous, 1999). The cause of compartment syndrome is due to excess pressure on 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. ...
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
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.

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 ...

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.

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

SAN FRANCISCO -- The good news is, Noah Lowry felt fine a day after throwing a side session, his fourth in the past couple weeks. The bad news is, neither he nor Giants head trainer Dave Groeschner knows what the immediate -- or not-so-immediate -- future holds. The current plans dictate Lowry throwing every other day while taking the weekends off. The lefty, who led the Giants in wins last season, threw 25-30 pitches from about 50 feet Wednesday -- numbers Groeschner said will increase in the coming weeks. Lowry reported no day-after pain, saying the numbness and tingling he felt earlier in the season has disappeared. Thats a positive sign that his surgically repaired left forearm is finally healing, Groeschner said. Lowry was diagnosed with exertional compartment syndrome in early March after several wild starts in Spring Training. "I feel good, [the ball] was coming out good," Lowry said.

If you plan on using any type of creatine supplement to help build your muscles, you should use caution, particularly when using them for a long time. These supplements should not be used if you have any sort of kidney issues. They can also cause cramping, muscle compartment syndrome, and compartment syndrome. Adolescents are at the highest risk. Be sure you are only using the recommended dosages with any supplement and consult your creatine intake at or below suggested safety levels.. Dont attempt to build muscles when you are taking part in a marathon or tackling other extreme cardio workouts. Cardio is essential for good fitness, but it can make Bodybuilding efforts futile.

We report a case in which a non-trauma patient suffering hematemesis and undergoing massive volume resuscitation developed abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). The abdominal distension severely compromised his pulmonary functioning: a chest radiograph showed low lung volumes and dense bilateral parenchymal opacities. His blood oxygen saturation reached as low as 32%. Because he was hemodynamically unstable and coagulopathic, decompressive surgery was not possible. We gradually raised the ventilator settings to reinflate the lungs (positive end-expiratory pressure [PEEP] was raised to 50 cm H2O, peak inspiratory pressure to 100 cm H2O, and plateau inspiratory pressure to 80 cm H2O) and continued fluid resuscitation, and within an hour his blood oxygen saturation increased to 100%. In this case high PEEP was beneficial in a situation in which decompressive surgery was not feasible, but we do not suggest that high PEEP necessarily improves survival or that high PEEP is better than surgical ...

Some of the symptoms associated with this condition often include swelling, edema (a collection of watery fluid within the tissue), infection, skin pallor (an unhealthy pale appearance), a cool feeling in the affected area, burn damage, and compartment syndrome. In cases where injury is minor, symptoms can typically be alleviated by withdrawing the IV and draining excess fluid from the arm. However, in severe cases the injury can be permanent. If medication or IV fluid is not in the appropriate pH range and is too acidic, IV infiltration can lead to tissue burns as a result of the chemical reaction. These burns can cause severe pain and result in nerve damage, which can lead to limited use of the affected limb. A chemical burn can be just as damaging as a heat burn, and these injuries often have a permanent impact on the victims quality of life.. A serious condition which can arise from IV infiltration or extravasation is compartment syndrome, which is caused by an increase in pressure in the ...

Introduction and Definitions: Crush injuries represent a spectrum of injury to body parts as result of trauma. Presentations vary from minor contusions to limb threatening damage. Typically, the injury involves multiple tissues from skin and subcutaneous to muscle and tendons to bone and joints. In their most severe presentations, predictable complications including osteomyelitis, non-union of fractures, failed flaps and amputations occur in approximately 50 percent of the cases with "standard of practice" surgical and medical interventions.. The skeletal muscle- compartment syndrome (SMCS) is another consequence of trauma, but in this situation the target tissues are muscles and nerve. Edema and/or bleeding within the confines of the fascial envelope increase the pressure within the skeletal muscle-compartment. When the tissue fluid pressure within the compartment exceeds the capillary perfusion pressure to the muscles and nerves in the compartment, these tissues are rendered ischemic and ...

Another scan revealed "compartment syndrome"- where blood/fluid are trapped in a compartment in his leg. The treatment? SURGERY....but that would be complicated, very complicated not only because of the blood thinner, but mostly because of the embolism. So the alternate plan was for his body to hopefully absorb some of the trapped fluid by elevating his leg for the next several days. Ed got a great report at todays visit with Dr. M. He said for the first time, he is actually "ahead of the curve." Truly, hes a walking miracle ...

The purpose of this large-animal study was to assess the safety and effects of negative pressure therapy (NPT) when used as temporary abdominal closure in the immediate post-decompression period after abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). Using a hemorrhagic shock/resuscitation and mesenteric venous pressure elevation model, ACS was physiologically induced in 12 female Yorkshire swine. At decompression, animals were allocated to either NPT (n = 6) or Bogota bag (n = 6) as temporary abdominal closure and studied for a period of 48 h or until death. Outcomes measured included morbidity and mortality, as well as hemodynamic parameters, ventilator-related measurements, blood gases, coagulation factors, and organ (liver, kidney, lung, and intestinal) edema and histology at the time of death/sacrifice. All animals developed ACS. Early application of NPT was associated with decreases in mesenteric venous and central venous pressure, and significantly increased drainage of peritoneal fluid. In addition, there
Systemic Capillary Leak Syndrome (SCLS) is a rare disorder characterized by increased capillary hyperpermeability leading to hypovolemic shock due to a markedly increased shift of fluid and protein from the intravascular to the interstitial space. Hemoconcentration, hypoalbuminemia and a monoclonal gammopathy are characteristic laboratory findings. Here we present a patient who suffered from SCLS with hypovolemic shock and compartment syndrome of both lower legs and thighs. Volume and catecholamine management was guided using transpulmonary thermodilution. Extended hemodynamic monitoring for volume and catecholamine management as well as monitoring of muscle compartment pressure is of crucial importance in SCLS patients.

Evaluating the degree of organ dysfunction is a cornerstone in distinguishing patients with critical illness from those without. However, evaluation of the gastrointestinal function in critically ill patients is not unified, and is still largely based on subjective clinical evaluation. Although intra-abdominal pressure has been proposed as a parameter to facilitate monitoring of abdominal compartment in critical illness, the interactions between intra-abdominal pressure and gastrointestinal function are poorly clarified. The aim of this current review is to describe interactions and associations between gastrointestinal dysfunction and intra-abdominal pressure from a pathophysiological and clinical point of view. ...
The posterior compartment of the forearm (or extensor compartment) contains 12 muscles which are chiefly responsible for extension of the wrist and digits, and supination of the forearm. It is separated from the anterior compartment by the interosseous membrane between the radius and ulna. There are generally 12 muscles in the posterior compartment of the forearm, which can be divided further into the superficial, the intermediate and the deep layer. Most of the superficial and the intermediate muscles share a common origin which is the outer part of the elbow, the lateral epicondyle of humerus. The deep muscles arise from distal part of ulna and the surrounding interosseous membrane. The brachioradialis, flexor of the elbow, is unusual in that it is located in the posterior compartment, but it is actually a muscle of flexor / anterior compartment of the forearm. The anconeus, assisting in extension of the elbow joint, is by some considered part of the posterior compartment of the arm. The ...
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
