Ischaemic contracture of muscles developing in limbs due to tight splinatage or an injury to major arterial trunk is a well known entity. However, the changes that concurrently occur in the bones of the involved extremity are not well documented. Hence, a comparative radiological study of bones of the normal and the involved extremity was carried out. In the developed countries, the treatment is so prompt and adequate that long standing cases of ischaemic contracture are not available to the clinician for study. In India where produced by tight splintage is fairly common, many patients seek help only years later.
