Ability of Near Infrared Spectroscopy to Isolate Compartments of the Extremity

Aug 15th, 2018 - Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) provides a non-invasive means of continuously monitoring tissue oxygenation, which may be useful for diagnosis of acute compartment syndrome (ACS). Placement of these sensor pads on the surface of the skin must be...

Use of Near Infrared Spectroscopy to Detect Muscle Perfusion in the Lower Extremity of Uninjured Subjects

Aug 15th, 2018 - Acute compartment syndrome (ACS) is a complication of lower leg trauma that occurs when the pressure inside the leg due to swelling exceeds the body's ability to provide blood to the muscle of the leg. This condition cuts off blood flow to the leg...

Phase I, Arteriocyte Magellan MAR01 Therapy - Compartment Syndrome and Battlefield Trauma

Apr 13th, 2017 - Compartment syndrome (CS) is a condition resulting from increased pressure within a compartment, which compromises circulation and can lead to critical limb ischemia. CS is one of the biggest medical challenges that our soldiers face after battlef...

Assessment of Near Infrared Spectroscopy as a Diagnostic Tool in Acute Compartment Syndrome

Apr 27th, 2015 - Acute compartment syndrome (ACS) is associated with lower leg trauma in up to 20% of high energy injuries. ACS occurs when the pressure due to swelling exceeds the perfusion pressure thereby cutting off blood flow to the leg. If untreated, the res...
