Caption: Woundcare for compartment syndrome. Doctor removing the negative-pressure wound healing device being used on a patient's lower extremity in a case of compartment syndrome. The patient's leg was operated on in a procedure called a fasciotomy, with the device being removed here for wound assessment and dressing. The underlying muscle is black and necrotic. Fasciotomy is the removal of connective tissue around muscles to relieve pressure, in this case from compartment syndrome, a life-threatening condition where injury can cause increased pressure within one of the body's compartments such as an arm or leg. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) draws out excess fluid from the wound, increases blood flow to the area, and promotes wound healing.
