Do stress fractures cause compartment syndrome?

Do stress fractures cause compartment syndrome?

Unlikely: That would be pretty rare. Compartment syndrome is usually caused by severe trauma to an extremity (arm or leg) from either soft tissue injury or a fracture. As blood and fluid rush into the closed space of the extremity, the pressure rises to dangerous levels causing a compartment syndrome. Stress fractures are small and subtle and usually dont generate the same reaction as more severe trauma. ...Read more

In an older person, "hypoplastic marrow" may be from sampling a place where marrow was a bit scant; the blood picture's key here. Your physicians know more. Good luck. ...Read more
