Rapid swelling, increased tension, pain, and ischemic necrosis of the muscles of the anterior tibial compartment of the leg, often following excessive PHYSICAL EXERTION.
Conditions in which increased pressure within a limited space compromises the BLOOD CIRCULATION and function of tissue within that space. Some of the causes of increased pressure are TRAUMA, tight dressings, HEMORRHAGE, and exercise. Sequelae include nerve compression (NERVE COMPRESSION SYNDROMES); PARALYSIS; and ISCHEMIC CONTRACTURE.
Layers of connective tissue of variable thickness. The superficial fascia is found immediately below the skin; the deep fascia invests MUSCLES, nerves, and other organs.
The region in the abdomen extending from the thoracic DIAPHRAGM to the plane of the superior pelvic aperture (pelvic inlet). The abdominal cavity contains the PERITONEUM and abdominal VISCERA, as well as the extraperitoneal space which includes the RETROPERITONEAL SPACE.
Pathological elevation of intra-abdominal pressure (>12 mm Hg). It may develop as a result of SEPSIS; PANCREATITIS; capillary leaks, burns, or surgery. When the pressure is higher than 20 mm Hg, often with end-organ dysfunction, it is referred to as abdominal compartment syndrome.

Unimuscular neuromuscular insult of the leg in partial anterior compartment syndrome in a patient with combined fractures. (1/23)

A complicated case of ipsilateral fractures of the left femur and tibia after a road traffic accident is reported. The patient presented with numbness of the first web of his left foot and contracture of the extensor hallucis longus muscle, with fixed length deformity after intramedullary nailing of the femur and tibia. The extensor digitorum longus and tibialis anterior muscles were spared. Tinel's sign could be elicited at the mid-portion of the anterior compartment of the injured leg. This indicated that the distal half of the anterior tibial nerve (deep peroneal nerve), together with the extensor hallucis muscle of the anterior compartment of the leg, had been damaged. The subsequent management of this patient is described.  (+info)

Acute compartment syndrome of the anterior thigh following quadriceps strain in a footballer. (2/23)

A rare case is presented of acute anterior compartment syndrome in the thigh of a footballer caused by an acute quadriceps strain, exacerbated by poor first aid and alcohol ingestion. Decompressive fasciotomy with subsequent split skin grafting of the wound defect resulted in a satisfactory outcome. The diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion lest it be overlooked with inevitably disastrous consequences.  (+info)

A spontaneous compartment syndrome in a patient with diabetes. (3/23)

A compartment syndrome is an orthopaedic emergency which can result from a variety of causes, the most common being trauma. Rarely, it can develop spontaneously and several aetiologies for spontaneous compartment syndrome have been described. We describe a patient with diabetes who developed a spontaneous compartment syndrome. The diagnosis was delayed because of the atypical presentation.  (+info)

Normal leg compartment pressures in adult Nigerians using the Whitesides method. (4/23)

In Caucasians, the range of normal intracompartmental pressure of the leg is from 0 mmHg to 15 mmHg. In the literature, such measurements have not been done in Africa to identify normal leg intracompartmental pressures. We have sought to identify the normal range of pressures in such a population of Nigerians, and to demonstrate the reproducibility of the Whitesides injection technique with materials that are easily available in most hospitals so that compartment syndromes could be identified promptly and inexpensively in developing countries. We performed a 16-month hospital-based prospective study at Wesley Guild Hospital in Ilesa, Osun State, Nigeria, to measure the intracompartmental pressures in the anterior and deep posterior compartments of 49 contralateral uninjured legs of patients with closed contralateral tibial fractures, measured at presentation. The Whitesides infusion technique was used with the aim of determining the normal range of compartmental pressure in Nigerians. The anterior compartment pressures ranged from 3 mmHg to 18 mmHg with a mean 7.6 +/- 2.6 mmHg. The pressure in the deep posterior compartment ranged from 3 mmHg to 14 mmHg with mean of 7.4 +/- 2.7 mmHg. The values are similar to those reported in the literature. There was no statistically significant difference between the pressures in the two compartments (p = 0.668).  (+info)

Acute compartment syndrome. Effect of dermotomy on fascial decompression in the leg. (5/23)

Prompt surgical decompression is the only means of preventing the late sequelae of ischaemic contracture in post-traumatic compartment syndromes. However, controversy exists regarding the length of dermotomy required for adequate decompression in the lower extremity. This study investigated the skin envelope as a potential contributing factor. Wide fascial releases were performed through limited 8 cm incisions in eight cases of post-traumatic lower extremity compartment syndrome. In nine of 29 compartments the pressure remained greater than 30 mmHg. Lengthening the skin incisions to an average of 16 cm decreased intracompartmental pressures significantly. This study documents the skin envelope as a contributing factor in acute compartment syndromes of the leg. The use of generous skin incisions is supported and the need for intra-operative compartment pressure measurements in the treatment of this condition is emphasised.  (+info)

Compartment pressures after intramedullary nailing of the tibia. (8/23)

Intracompartmental pressures of 66 patients with 67 tibial fractures treated by intramedullary nailing were monitored. There was no difference in the pressures recorded between the different Tscherne fracture types, between open and closed fractures, between low energy and high energy injuries or between fractures dealt with early and those not treated until more than 24 hours after injury. The overall incidence of acute compartment syndrome was 1.5%. No patient developed any sequelae of compartment syndrome. We conclude that intramedullary nailing does not increase the incidence of acute compartment syndrome in tibial fractures and that delay does not reduce the risk of raised compartment pressures.  (+info)

Anterior compartment syndrome is a medical condition that occurs when there is increased pressure in the anterior (front) compartment of the leg, which contains muscles and nerves. This compression can decrease blood flow and lead to damage or dysfunction of the affected tissues.

The anterior compartment of the leg contains three muscles: the tibialis anterior, extensor hallucis longus, and extensor digitorum longus. These muscles are responsible for dorsiflexion (pointing the foot upwards) and eversion (turning the sole of the foot outward).

Anterior compartment syndrome can be caused by a variety of factors, including trauma, bleeding, swelling, or overuse. Symptoms may include pain, tightness, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the leg or foot. In severe cases, it can lead to muscle damage, nerve damage, and even permanent disability.

Treatment for anterior compartment syndrome typically involves relieving the pressure in the affected compartment through surgical intervention, known as a fasciotomy. This procedure involves making an incision in the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding the muscles) to release the pressure and allow blood flow to be restored. In some cases, physical therapy or rehabilitation may also be necessary to help restore function and strength to the affected leg.

Compartment syndromes refer to a group of conditions characterized by increased pressure within a confined anatomical space (compartment), leading to impaired circulation and nerve function. These compartments are composed of bones, muscles, tendons, blood vessels, and nerves, surrounded by a tough fibrous fascial covering that does not expand easily.

There are two main types of compartment syndromes: acute and chronic.

1. Acute Compartment Syndrome (ACS): This is a medical emergency that typically occurs after trauma, fractures, or prolonged compression of the affected limb. The increased pressure within the compartment reduces blood flow to the muscles and nerves, causing ischemia, pain, and potential muscle and nerve damage if not promptly treated with fasciotomy (surgical release of the fascial covering). Symptoms include severe pain disproportionate to the injury, pallor, paresthesia (abnormal sensation), pulselessness, and paralysis.
2. Chronic Compartment Syndrome (CCS) or Exertional Compartment Syndrome: This condition is caused by repetitive physical activities that lead to increased compartment pressure over time. The symptoms are usually reversible with rest and may include aching, cramping, tightness, or swelling in the affected limb during exercise. CCS rarely leads to permanent muscle or nerve damage if managed appropriately with activity modification, physical therapy, and occasionally surgical intervention (fasciotomy or fasciectomy).

Early recognition and appropriate management of compartment syndromes are crucial for preventing long-term complications such as muscle necrosis, contractures, and nerve damage.

A fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, that covers, connects, and separates muscles, organs, and other structures in the body. It provides support and stability, allows for smooth movement between structures, and has the ability to transmit forces throughout the body. Fascia is found throughout the body, and there are several layers of it, including superficial fascia, deep fascia, and visceral fascia. Injury, inflammation, or strain to the fascia can cause pain and restriction of movement.

The abdominal cavity is the portion of the abdominothoracic cavity that lies between the diaphragm and the pelvic inlet. It contains the stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, adrenal glands, and associated blood vessels and nerves. The abdominal cavity is enclosed by the abdominal wall, which consists of muscles, fascia, and skin. It is divided into several compartments by various membranes, including the peritoneum, a serous membrane that lines the walls of the cavity and covers many of the organs within it. The abdominal cavity provides protection and support for the organs it contains, and also serves as a site for the absorption and digestion of food.

Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) is an abnormal increase in the pressure within the abdominal cavity, typically defined as a sustained or repeated pathological elevation in the intravesical pressure greater than 12 mmHg (millimeters of mercury). It can lead to reduced blood flow to organs in the abdomen and can cause serious complications if not properly managed.

The causes of IAH are varied, including conditions such as ascites, liver disease, intra-abdominal infection or inflammation, trauma, and abdominal surgery. In some cases, it may also be caused by the use of certain medications that can affect abdominal muscle tone or fluid balance.

IAH is often classified into four grades based on the degree of pressure elevation: Grade I (12-15 mmHg), Grade II (16-20 mmHg), Grade III (21-25 mmHg), and Grade IV (>25 mmHg).

If left untreated, IAH can lead to a number of serious complications, including organ dysfunction, respiratory compromise, decreased cardiac output, and even death. Treatment typically involves addressing the underlying cause of the pressure elevation, as well as supportive measures such as fluid management, decompressive laparotomy, or use of abdominal drains.
