Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors present a case of a lower leg compartment syndrome that developed after a regional chemotherapy technique was used for recurrent melanoma of the foot in a 74-year-old woman. The diagnosis was based on the results of physical examination, with confirmation by intracompartmental pressures. Prompt consultation of orthopedic surgeons and fasciotomy helped avoid potentially crippling sequelae.
