In this episode, we’re focusing on the impact on care of OREF-funded research by Dr. Frederick Matsen on compartmental syndrome.
Dr. Matsen is professor in the Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine and holder of the Douglas T. Harryman II Endowed Chair in Shoulder and Elbow Research at UW Medicine, Seattle. He specializes in shoulder reconstructive surgery and is currently interested in research that explores factors that affect outcomes for patients.
In the 1970s, Dr. Matsen received three OREF grants to research intracompartmental tissue pressure. His research led to an understanding of clinical symptoms that allowed orthopaedic surgeons to assess limbs at risk for compartmental syndrome, a condition caused by dangerous levels of pressure within the muscles.
Watch as Dr. discusses his body of work, how it has impacted clinical practice and, most importantly, how it has improved patient outcomes.
