MedLine Citation:
PMID:  11973178     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two previously reported causes of postoperative limb ischemia after use of a tourniquet, compartment syndrome and arterial thromboembolism, require aggressive and invasive management. We report another probable cause that can be managed nonsurgically: vasospasm.
