Abstract

Acute lower limb ischemia, reperfusion syndrome, and compartment syndrome occur inseparable together in any case, albeit with varying degrees of severity in individual patients. The mainstay of treatment is appropriate and quick proper diagnosis and adequate treatment initiation. Lack of proper treatment may lead to intensification of ischemia and dangerous life and health threatening complications, including death.

The aim of the study was to present in a coherent manner the pathophysiology of acute limb ischemia, reperfusion syndrome, and compartment syndrome.
