Monitoring of intramuscular pressure.

Abstract

Increased pressure within an osteofascial compartment may produce a compartmental syndrome, one of the principal causes of local circulatory compromise in traumatized extremities. In certain instances, monitoring of intracompartmental pressure may be a valuable adjunct in the clinical evaluation of patients at risk for this syndrome.
