Randomized Clinical Trial of Tissue Ultrafiltration and Pressure Monitoring for the Diagnosis and Prevention of Compartment Syndrome

Investigator: Theodore Miclau, MD
Sponsor: Twin Star Medical, Inc.


An investigation of a new catheter and pressure monitor system that may help to prevent a complication called compartment syndrome from developing in an injured leg. Compartment syndrome occurs when too much fluid builds up in the muscles of the injured leg. This causes a lot of swelling and increases pressures within the leg that can cause permanent damage muscles and nerves in the leg.
