Acute compartment syndromes of the foot

, : Acute compartment syndromes of the foot. Bulletin of the Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopaedic Institute 47(2): 251-261

The early recognition and treatment of impending compartmental ischemia in the foot in the context of severe injuries will prevent the late sequelae of myoneural necrosis. When suspected, simple tests will confirm the diagnosis. If the clinical findings are equivocal, compartment pressure monitoring is an essential diagnostic tool. Methods of measuring compartment pressures in the foot are outlined. Prompt decompression of the compartment syndrome with appropriate fasciotomies either by medical or dorsal longitudinal incisions is indicated to preserve function and form of the foot.
