The extent of cellular metabolic deterioration and its reversibility was studied on human skeletal muscle needle biopsies during operations in bloodless field. The tissue levels of high energy phosphates and glycolytic metabolites were analyzed after various times of tourniquet ischemia and compared to contralateral control extremity levels. In the ischemic… CONTINUE READING
