Abstract

Intra-compartment pressure studies remain the main investigative method in diagnosing chronic compartment syndrome (CCS). Standard exercise protocols have been used to cause the raise in pressure measured in the laboratories. This case suggests that CCS cannot be excluded without the specific sports activity being used to raise the intracompartmental pressure. Images Figure 4
