Extensive upper extremity deep venous thrombosis following brief application of an operative arm tourniquet

Extensive upper extremity deep venous thrombosis following brief application of an operative arm tourniquet:

Extensive upper extremity deep venous thrombosis and compartment syndrome secondary to operative tourniquet application are rare outcomes of established practice. We present the case of a 54-year-old female who underwent elective removal of a right olecranon plate under general anaesthetic with brief application of a tourniquet. In recovery, she developed a swollen and erythematous forearm, without significant pain and paraesthesia. An urgent dual-phase computed tomography angiogram identified no venous outflow proximal to the axillary vein. Concern for early compartment syndrome necessitated emergency fasciotomies of the right forearm and hand, precluding thrombolysis. Thrombosis was found in the superficial and deep veins throughout the forearm, but the muscles were healthy. The patient commenced anticoagulation therapy early and made good recovery. Further haematology review concluded that she had a ‘provoked thrombosis’ and no need for long-term anticoagulation.
