We conducted a study to highlight areas of risk with distal radius fixation to prevent occurrence of extensor tendon injury without compromising the security and stability of the fixation. Twelve cadaveric forearms were used. The volar locking plate was placed to best anatomical and radiologic fit on the distal radius of each arm. All 7 holes in the plate(More)
BACKGROUND Acute compartment syndrome is a rare but serious consequence of traumatic leg injury. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is able to measure oxygenation to a depth of 2 cm to 3 cm below the skin, raising concerns over the ability of NIRS to accurately determine oxygenation of injured leg compartments in the presence of swelling and in the obese.(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of skin pigmentation regarding Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) tissue oxygen saturation values (StO2). The study examined NIRS values in individuals with varying skin pigmentation on the anterior compartment of the lower leg and volar forearm to determine if correlation exists among three NIRS(More)
INTRODUCTION Patients who sustain lower extremity trauma are at highest risk for acute compartment syndrome (ACS) during the first 48 hours after surgical stabilization. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) may be a useful monitoring tool for ACS during this period; however, expected normal values have yet to be established. This study sought to evaluate(More)
