Left Leg Post-traumatic Compartment Syndrome and Fasciotomies
This stock medical exhibit depicts post-traumatic compartment syndrome with surgical fasciotomies. The upper left images compare a cross section of a normal calf with a calf with compartment syndrome - where swelling of the muscles causes compression of nerves and blood vessels. The bottom three images depict the fasciotomies performed to treat this condition and the subsequent closure.
