Fasciectomy

Fasciectomy, also known as fasciotomy, is surgery that cuts into the fascia to release pressure in an area that has a loss of circulation. This procedure is usually done to save a limb due to acute compartment syndrome. 

Causes For A Fasciectomy:

Some causes of compartment syndrome are;

  • Crush injuries
  • Impact injuries
  • People with severe burns
  • People who are severely overweight. 

Symptoms:

  • Numbness
  • Pain that will not decrease after elevation or medicine
  • Feeling of tightness
  • Tingling

 

Treatment:

If the symptoms go untreated it can lead to neurovascular damage and may end up with the loss of the limb.  If, in fact, the injury is not an emergency the Advanced Soft Tissue Release, ASTR, treatment is a non-surgical procedure to help release the pressure in a holistic way.
