Andrologia 2020 May 13:e13618. Epub 2020 May 13.

Department of Ultrasound, Fujian Medical University Union Hospital, Fuzhou, China.

The measurement of compartment pressure is a direct method to objectively evaluate suspected compartment syndrome. However, to evaluate the evolving compartment syndrome, one needs to measure the pressure repeatedly, which may aggravate the damage of tissue. Despite several suggested approaches, an effective, noninvasive and sustainable method to detect testicular compartment syndrome is still lacking. Read More

Assistant Professor and Director of Ultrasound (Gottlieb), Assistant Professor (Davenport), and Resident Physician (Adams, Chien), Department of Emergency Medicine, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL.

Abdominal compartment syndrome is an emergent condition caused by increased pressure within the abdominal compartment. It can be caused by a number of etiologies, which are associated with decreased abdominal wall compliance, increased intraluminal or intraperitoneal contents, or edema from capillary leak or fluid resuscitation. The history and physical examination are of limited utility, and the criterion standard for diagnosis is intra-abdominal pressure measurement, which is typically performed via an intravesical catheter.

Zsolt Bodnar

Anaesthesiol Intensive Ther 2019 ;51(4):316-322

Department of Surgery, Letterkenny University Hospital, Letterkenny, Ireland.

Intra-abdominal hypertension and the abdominal compartment syndrome are well-known, serious, life-threatening clinical entities in acute care surgery. A common characteristic of these syndromes is the permanent and irreversible damage that may affect the organs which can be found inside the given compartment if quick intervention cannot be provided. All factors which may and can lead to a sudden increase in the intra-abdominal pressure can be found among the triggering factors of abdominal compartment syndrome. Read More

Noninvasive diagnostics for extremity compartment syndrome following traumatic injury: A state-of-the-art review.

J Trauma Acute Care Surg 2019 07;87(1S Suppl 1):S59-S66

From the US Army Institute of Surgical Research (T.J.W., M.A.K., K.L.R.), Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas; and Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Altman Clinical and Translational Research Institute (A.R.H.), University of California San Diego, San Diego, California.

Acute compartment syndrome (ACS) is a serious medical condition that can occur following traumatic injury to an extremity. If left undiagnosed, ACS can eventuate in amputation of the limb or even death. Because of this, fasciotomy to release the pressure within the muscle and restore tissue perfusion is often performed upon suspicion of ACS, as the sequelae to fasciotomy are less severe than those associated with not performing the fasciotomy.

A Novel Non-invasive Method for the Detection of Elevated Intra-compartmental Pressures of the Leg.

J Vis Exp 2019 05 31(147). Epub 2019 May 31.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of California, San Francisco;

Acute Compartment Syndrome is a devastating consequence of musculoskeletal trauma. Currently the diagnosis is based on clinical signs and symptoms, and while adjuncts such as invasive intra-compartmental pressure measurements are often used to corroborate the physical exam findings, there remains no reliable objective test to aid in the decision to perform a decompressive fasciotomy. In a cadaver model of compartment syndrome, an ultrasound (US) based method has been shown to be a reliable measurement of increased intra-compartmental pressure. Read More

Low compartment pressure and myoglobin levels in tibial fractures with suspected acute compartment syndrome.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2019 Jan 5;20(1):15. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Department of Orthopedics and Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

Background: The intense ischemic pain of acute compartment syndrome can be difficult to discriminate from the pain related to an associated fracture. Lacking objective measures, the decision to perform fasciotomy is often only based on clinical findings and performed at a low threshold. Biomarkers of muscle cell damage might help to identify and monitor patients at risk. Read More

Patient-specific cranio-spinal compliance distribution using lumped-parameter model: its relation with ICP over a wide age range.

Fluids Barriers CNS 2018 Nov 15;15(1):29. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Radiology, Ludwig-Maximilians University, 80539, Munich, Germany.

Background: The distribution of cranio-spinal compliance (CSC) in the brain and spinal cord is a fundamental question, as it would determine the overall role of the compartments in modulating ICP in healthy and diseased states. Invasive methods for measurement of CSC using infusion-based techniques provide overall CSC estimate, but not the individual sub-compartmental contribution. Additionally, the outcome of the infusion-based method depends on the infusion site and dynamics. Read More

Use of Oxygen Tissue Monitoring in Patients With Compartment Syndrome: Two Clinical Cases and Literature Review.

Mil Med 2019 05;184(5-6):e475-e479

Central Hospital of Defense "Gómez Ulla", Trauma and Orthopedic Surgery Department, Glorieta del Ejército s/n, Madrid, Spain.

Compartment syndrome is defined as the pathology caused by the increase of pressure within a muscular compartment to the point where the vascular perfusion necessary for the viability of the tissues included therein is reduced. The diagnosis is established by clinical exam and pressure measurement. Measurement of intracompartmental pressure is an invasive method with no option of easy continuous monitoring. Read More

Population Pharmacokinetic Modeling of Azithromycin Eyedrops in Tears Following Single-Dose Topical Administration in Healthy Volunteers.

Eur J Drug Metab Pharmacokinet 2019 Jun;44(3):371-378

Department of Pharmacy, Peking University First Hospital, Beijing, China.

Background And Objectives: The disposition of azithromycin in the human eye following topical administration has not been fully explored. Population pharmacokinetic (PopPK) modeling can allow useful conclusions to be drawn based on limited tear sampling data. The aim of this study was therefore to develop and evaluate a PopPK model of azithromycin eyedrops in tears, investigate typical model parameters, and identify potential covariates following single-dose ocular instillation.

Continuous Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Demonstrates Limitations in Monitoring the Development of Acute Compartment Syndrome in Patients with Leg Injuries.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2018 Oct;100(19):1645-1652

Departments of Health Policy and Management (K.P.F. and E.M.) and Biostatistics (J.D. and V.Z.), Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland.

Background: We recorded measurements of muscle perfusion using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and intramuscular pressure (IMP) in a study designed to develop a decision rule for predicting acute compartment syndrome (ACS). The purpose of this study was to report our experience measuring NIRS data in the context of this broader investigation and to explore factors related to variations in data capture.

Methods: One hundred and eighty-five patients with lower-leg injuries had data consisting of continuous NIRS measurement of the O2 saturation in the anterior compartment of the injured limb and the contralateral (control) limb, and continuous IMP recording in the anterior and deep posterior compartments of the injured leg as part of their participation in an institutional review board-approved multicenter trial.
