Chronic exertional compartment syndrome of the forearm is a rare disease characterized by the recurrent onset of forearm pain and progressive weakness during exertion. Over the years many surgical techniques have been reported in literature: wide-open fasciotomy, mini-open fasciotomy, fasciotomy associated with fasciectomy, and mini-invasive endoscopic fasciotomy. Compared with traditional open techniques, mini-invasive techniques are characterized by minimal tissue trauma, less postoperative pain, faster recovery to normal activity and better esthetical result. We describe a mini-invasive endoscopic technique for the treatment of forearm chronic exertional compartment syndrome using the SmartRelease endoscopic tissue release system (MicroAire).

Abstract

Chronic exertional compartment syndrome of the forearm is a rare disease characterized by the recurrent onset of forearm pain and progressive weakness during exertion. Over the years many surgical techniques have been reported in literature: wide-open fasciotomy, mini-open fasciotomy, fasciotomy associated with fasciectomy, and mini-invasive endoscopic fasciotomy. Compared with traditional open techniques, mini-invasive techniques are characterized by minimal tissue trauma, less postoperative pain, faster recovery to normal activity and better esthetical result. We describe a mini-invasive endoscopic technique for the treatment of forearm chronic exertional compartment syndrome using the SmartRelease endoscopic tissue release system (MicroAire).
