BACKGROUND Decision-making in treatment of an acute compartment syndrome is based on clinical assessment, supported by invasive monitoring. Thus, evolving compartment syndrome may require repeated pressure measurements. In suspected cases of potential compartment syndromes clinical assessment alone seems to be unreliable. The objective of this study was to(More)
PURPOSE There is a risk of misinterpreting the clinical signs of acute compartment syndrome of the lower limb resulting in delayed fasciotomy. Up to date, the diagnosis of compartment syndrome is based on clinical assessment and of invasive needle pressure measurement in uncertain cases. Close monitoring is necessary for early recognition of raising(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the utility of contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in the differentiation between physiological and simulated pathophysiological lower limb muscle perfusion pressures in healthy volunteers. METHODS The lower limb muscle perfusion pressures in eight healthy volunteers were assessed in the supine position (as(More)
