Acute Compartment Syndrome Of The Leg

Location: http://bmj.bmjjournals.com/cgi/content/full/325/7364/557

BMJ editorial BMJ 2002;325:557-558 Acute limb compartment syndrome is a surgical emergency characterised by raised pressure in an unyielding osteofascial compartment. Sustained elevation of tissue pressure reduces capillary perfusion below a level necessary for tissue viability, and irreversible muscle and nerve damage may occur within hours. Causes include trauma, revascularisation...

Compartment Syndrome eMedicine PMR

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/pmr/topic33.htm

In 1881, Richard von Volkmann reported the effects of ischemia on the soft-tissue components of a limb compartment. The contractures that developed were named after him. Wilson first described the initial case of exertional compartment syndrome in 1912. Mavor, in 1956, first reported a case of chronic compartment syndrome. Since...

Definition:
* A condition where the pressure within an enclosed anatomical compartment rises sufficiently to obstruct the micro-vascular circulation causing tissue ischemia and, if left untreated, necrosis.
* A prerequisite for the development of increased tissue pressure is an envelope restricting the volume available...

Extremity Compartment Syndrome eMedicine Emergency

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/EMERG/topic739.htm

eMedicine 2005 Compartment syndrome (CS) is a limb-threatening and life-threatening condition observed when perfusion pressure falls below tissue pressure in a closed anatomic space. The current body of knowledge unequivocally reflects that untreated CS leads to tissue necrosis, permanent functional impairment, and, if severe, renal failure and death.
