  1. 1. Chronic exertional compartment syndrome of the lower leg a novel diagnosis in diabetes mellitus: a clinical and morphological study of diabetic and non-diabetic patients

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : David Edmundsson; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic compartment syndrome; diabetes mellitus; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Orthopaedics; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Ortopedi; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) of the lower leg, defined as a condition with exercise-induced pain due to increased intramuscular pressure (IMP), has previously mainly been described in running athletes, and etiologic factors are poorly described. CECS has not been reported to occur together with other diseases and information about consequences on muscles morphology after treatment with fasciotomy is largely unknown. READ MORE

  2. 2. Pulse-Synchronous Intramuscular Pressure Oscillations

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Andreas Nilsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; compartment syndrome; chronic anterior compartment syndrome; intramuscular pressure; pulse-synchronous oscillations in intramuscular pressure; intramuscular arterial pulsations; fiber-optic technique;

    Abstract : Background Intramuscular pressure (IMP) is measured in studies of tissue nutrition and in the diagnosis of compartment syndromes. Patients with compartment syndromes have an elevated IMP due to increased volume in a muscle compartment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Methods in Diagnosing Chronic Anterior Compartment Syndrome. A clinical study in patients with exercise induced leg pain

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Kajsa Rennerfelt; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic compartment syndrome; exercise-induced leg pain; near-infrared spectroscopy; patient pain drawing; intramuscular pressure;

    Abstract : Chronic anterior compartment syndrome (CACS) is a painful condition within one or more muscle compartment(s) in the lower leg. It impedes blood flow and muscular function due to elevated intramuscular pressure. The diagnostic criteria are the subject of debate. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the metabolic consequenses of abdominal compartment syndrome

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Per Skoog; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intra-abdominal hypertension; intra-abdominal metabolism microdialysis; laserdoppler flowmetry; lactate; pyruvate; glycerol; lactate pyruvate ratio; ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and the progression to abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) are known complications of vascular and abdominal surgery, trauma, sepsis, and burns. ACS is associated with high mortality. READ MORE

  5. 5. Patellofemoral pain syndrome : Clinical and pathophysiological considerations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Jan Näslund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patellofemoral pain syndrome; pain mechanism; bone blood flow; ischemia;

    Abstract : Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders and is reported to affect 15%-33% of the active adult population and 21%-45% of adolescents. Among adolescents, the incidence is reported to be higher for girls. READ MORE
