Laser Doppler flowmetry in the diagnosis of chronic compartment syndrome.


Chronic compartment syndrome (CCS) is usually considered to be due to ischaemia of muscle. We have attempted to use the direct measurement of muscle blood flow for diagnosis since the assessment of intracompartmental pressure does not provide accurate knowledge of the vascular state. We recorded simultaneously continuous measurements of the laser Doppler… (More)
