Abstract

Cases: We report the cases of two female patients who presented with symptoms of lower-extremity exertional compartment syndrome years after initial amniotic band reconstruction. These patients underwent extensive fascial release for treatment of amniotic band disruption sequence (ABDS) of the lower extremity, with resolution of their symptoms. We describe our current technique that is now performed at the time of initial reconstruction for addressing all layers of the deformity. Conclusion: The surgical reconstruction of ABDS requires addressing all layers of the deformity. Failure to do so may lead to long-term sequelae. Both patients in this report had exertional compartment syndrome following incomplete fascial release at their primary surgery, requiring subsequent fasciotomies.
