Volkmann ischemic contracture in Adult
In mild cases, contracture may involve two or three fingers and patients may have limited or no loss of feeling. In moderate cases, all fingers are bent and the thumb is stuck in the palm; the wrist may also be bent, and there is typically some loss of feeling in the hand. In severe cases, all muscles of the forearm are affected, and pain experienced can be disabling.
Treatment and prognosis are dependent on stage and severity at the time of diagnosis.
