Chronic exertional compartment syndrome is one cause of pain in the lower extremity, a common disability in athletes. The significance of intracompartmental pressures in the diagnosis of chronic exertional compartment syndrome is somewhat controversial. The goal of this study was to review the compartment pressure tests in a group of patients that underwent fasciotomy for refractory exertional compartment syndrome and to compare these pressures with an asymptomatic control group. The results are presented and compared with those of previous studies.
