Ischemic contracture in the lower limb

, : Ischemic contracture in the lower limb. Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research: 185-192

Twenty cases of ischemic contracture in the lower limb demonstrate that the age distribution may be higher than that of patients with similar lesions in the upper limbs. Non-traumatic and traumatic causes are encountered equally frequently. Pain is one of the most important symptoms associated with long standing lesions. The ischemic lesion develops most frequently and severely in the anterior compartment of the leg. The functional prognosis is poor when both nerves are affected and when the deformity is severe.
