Abstract

A new fasciotomy technique using laparoscopic scissors and a subcutaneous tunneler is presented in detail with photographic illustrations. The procedure is basically a short incision technique and is expected to replace the conventional short incision fasciotomy technique which uses Metzenbaum scissors or straight scissors. Our technique can be performed easily and the completeness of the fasciotomy can be confirmed easier than it can be when using the conventional short incision technique.
