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)

Chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) involves a painful increase in compartment pressure caused by exercise and relieved by rest, common in athletes. The most common site for CECS in the lower limbs is the anterior leg compartment. The aim of this study is to evaluate the outcomes of a single minimal incision fasciotomy in athletes and their capability to return to high level sport activity. The study reports mid-term results in a series of 18 consecutive athletes with chronic exertional compartment syndrome of the leg who had undergone minimally invasive fasciotomy. Between 2000 and 2007, we prospectively enrolled 18 consecutive athletes (12 males and six females, median age 27 years) with unilateral or bilateral chronic exertional compartment syndrome undergoing unilateral or bilateral minimally invasive fasciotomy. Clinical outcomes were assessed with Short-Form Health Survey-36 (SF-36) and European Quality of Life-5 Dimension (EQ-5D) scale. The ability to participate in sport before and
Often called exercise induced compartment syndrome, chronic exertional compartment syndrome causes swelling and pain in the muscles.
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 ...
Methods The exercise protocol involved exercising patients using a representative military task: the Combat Fitness Test with a 15 kg Bergen on a treadmill, set at 6.5 km/h with zero incline up to 15 min and if completed, a further 5 min at 7.5 km/h. Subjects informed us when the exertional leg pain was 7/10 on a visual analogue scale and were instructed to carry on till failure (pain 10/10) or till the test finished. Mean pressure during this time period (7/10 to 10/10) was calculated by computer.. ...

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. ...

Compartment syndrome may develop in 0.1% to 0.3% of children presenting with supracondylar humerus fractures (Battaglia, 2002) (Ramachandran, 2008). Elbow flexion in casts beyond 90 degrees and vascular injuries increase the risk. Mubarak et al reported 9 cases of volar forearm compartment syndrome. The majority were associated with elbow flexion past 90 degrees after closed reduction (Mubarak, 1979). Battaglia et al measured compartment pressures in 29 children with supracondylar humerus fractures and reported the highest pressures in the deep volar compartment close to the fracture site. They also reported increased pressures when elbow was flexed more than 90 degrees (Battaglia, 2002). Although compartment syndrome associated with supracondylar humerus fractures is mostly seen in volar compartment of the forearm, compartment syndrome of the mobile wad, anterior arm compartment, and posterior arm compartment are also reported in children (Diesselhort, 2014; Mai, 2011). Choi et al reported two ...
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 ...

Several decades ago, the beneficial effects of goal-directed therapy, which include decompressive laparotomy (DL) and open abdomen procedures in cases of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) in children, were proven in the context of closures of abdominal wall defects and large-for-size organ transplantations. Different neonatologic and pediatric disease patterns are also known to be capable of increasing intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). Nevertheless, a considerable knowledge transfer regarding such risk factors has hardly taken place. When left undetected and untreated, IAH threatens to evolve into abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), which is accompanied by a mortality rate of up to 60% in children. Therefore, the present study looks at the recognition and knowledge of IAH/ACS among German pediatric intensivists. In June 2010, a questionnaire was mailed to the heads of pediatric intensive care units of 205 German pediatric hospitals. The response rate was 62%. At least one case of IAH was reported by 36
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 ...

BACKGROUND:Acute gluteal compartment syndrome is a rare condition that usually results from prolonged immobilization following a traumatic event, conventionally involving the presence of compounding factors such as alcohol or opioid intoxication. If delay in medical treatment is prolonged, severe rhabdomyolysis may ensue, leading to acute renal failure and potentially death. CASE REPORT:We report the case of a 23-year-old male with a recent history of incarceration and recreational drug use, who presented with reports of severe right-sided buttock pain and profound right-sided neurological loss following a questionable history involving prolonged immobilization after a fall from a standing position. The patient required an emergent gluteal fasciotomy immediately upon admission and required temporary hemodialysis. After an extended hospital stay, he ultimately recovered with only mild deficits in muscular strength in the right lower extremity. CONCLUSIONS:This report demonstrates the importance of early
Our study aims to emphasize the novelty of female rats in regard to their hemodynamic changes in response to abdominal compartment syndrome. A group of 64 rats was randomly divided into 4 subgroups for each gender. Except for the control, intra-abdominal pressure was increased to 10, 20, 30 mmHg. Survival time, mean arterial pressure, pH and lactate were determined at different time intervals. As IAP was 20 mmHg, a statistically difference was seen between the male group and the female group starting from 15 min (126 ± 9.7 mmHg, 124 ± 14.7 mmHg respectively, p | 0.02) and lasting 2 h. At 30 mmHg, a statistically difference was seen between 30 to 60 min (p | 0.05). Only group 2 presented results with statistical power both at 30 and at 60 min concerning pH (p = 0.003, p | 0.001 respectively). In the lactate measurements at IAP of 10 mmHg, at 60 min male lactate level was 3.93 ± 1.13 and 2.25 ± 0.33 in female rats (p = 0.034). Female rats that were subjected to IAP of 20 mmHg and 30 mmHg had
