Résumé : Limb revascularisation after prolonged ischemia is often associated with a local worsening of the muscular damage. Oedema, loss of muscle function, muscular necrosis and systemic disorders are the result of a sequence of local cellular events and systemic complications, which begin with the ischemic period and are aggravated by uncontrolled reperfusion. We present a typical case which reminds us that it is not enough to reverse ischemia. We must, futhermore, control the conditions in which reperfusion occurs.
