CHANGE OF PRESSURE INSIDE THE SUPERFICIAL POSTERIOR MUSCULAR-FASCIAL COMPARTMENT OF THE LEG AFTER CALF AUGMENTATION WITH GEL-FILLED SILICONE IMPLANTS

Cover Page

Abstract


Purpose: The purpose of the study was to examine the degree of tissue compression and evaluate the safety of installation of a volume gel-filled implant inside the superficial posterior muscular-fascial compartment of the legs. Materials and methods: The author conducted a direct measurement of the pressure inside the superficial posterior muscular-fascial compartment of the legs in five patients (10 calves) before the surgery and immediately after installation of gel-filled silicone implants inside the superficial posterior compartment of the legs with an average volume of 85-140 ml. Results and conclusions: The pressure measured by the proposed method inside the superficial posterior muscular-fascial compartment of the legs before the surgery was on average 2,1 ± 0,4 mm Hg, after implants installation - 8,9 ± 0,9 mm Hg. The result obtained is significantly lower than the critical intra-compartmental pressure, which indicates the safety of calf augmentation by insertion of implant inside the superficial posterior muscular-fascial compartment.
