Abstract

Ultrastructural examination of the intrinsic hand muscles was performed on young healthy patients undergoing reconstructive operations following tendon or nerve lesions. The muscle specimens were taken at the start and then every fifteen to twenty minutes until the end of the tourniquet ischaemia. The authors have not found any morphological alterations following the use of a tourniquet up to two hours in either the intact or previously injured muscles.
