Acute Compartment Syndrome in the Forearm with Trans-Ulnar Single Incision

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report a case of ulnar nerve palsy caused by diaphyseal fractures of the forearm and acute compartment syndrome. Trans-ulnar single incision with a fasciotomy of the volar and dorsal compartments was used to fix the ulna. Full recovery of the ulnar nerve was achieved six months after the surgery. In cases of acute compartment syndrome with ulnar fracture, a trans-ulnar incision with compartment release is effective for the fixation of the ulna.
