Post-traumatic limb ischemia: prediction of final outcome by transcutaneous oxygen measurements in hyperbaric oxygen.

Abstract

In limb injuries (amputation, laceration injuries, or compartment syndrome), a circulatory insufficiency with a total or subtotal ischemia may occur and jeopardize the result of reconstructive surgery. Transcutaneous oxygen monitoring has been shown to reflect tissue perfusion and has been advocated to predict the final outcome of major vascular trauma of… (More)
