Compartment syndrome after extremity vascular injury has gained attention with the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Compartment syndrome after extremity vascular injury is due to the initial ischemic insult and reperfusion injury. Complications from compartment syndrome can be lessened by fasciotomy, which is reviewed in this article.
