We studied twenty-five consecutive patients who had a closed tibial fracture to determine whether there was a relationship between compartment pressure and the distance at which the pressure was measured from the site of the fracture. Tissue pressure was measured in all four compartments of the leg at the level of the fracture and at five-centimeter increments proximal and distal to the fracture. The peak pressure was usually found at the level of the fracture and was always located within five… CONTINUE READING
