Compartment Syndrome

Compartment syndrome refers to muscle swelling in the leg and its resulting complications. The leg contains four compartments, surrounded by tissue called the fascia. When the muscle group within one or more of the compartments swells, it is contained by the fascia, while the neighboring nerves and artery are impacted. The muscles are then constrained and damaged, without any space to expand. Damage to the nerves and decreased blood flow may also result.
