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...

What surgical procedures can correct or slow continued deformity of cavus foot caused 3 months ago from compartment syndrome?

Varies. It is probably too early at this point, just three months out because there is still the potential to improve or worsen from your condition. Once the deformity is stable, however, the surgery type depends in part on the flexibility of the deformity; with soft tissue procedures for flexible deformities and bone surgeries for rigid deformities. You would want to be using an orthotic/ brace now. Read more...

Over time does exertional compartment syndrome cause all of the compartments in the lower leg to be affected? Smaller tenser muscles?

Not likely. The anterior compartment is the tightest, and when you're having pain there you usually stop exerting yourself, reducing the pressure there and in all the compartments. It is possible in other compartments though, and the syndrome has been described in every compartment of arms and legs. In my experience it's limited to one compartment at t time just the same.

IF untreated Compartment syndrome caused cavus foot & slight osteoarthritis in ankle, will ankle OA keep progressing or stay same if CS & cavus fixed?

Depends. A cavus deformity does place asymmetric stress on the cartilage of the ankle joint. The deformity should be corrected to give a stable foot in order to lessen the progression of OA. This should be evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon who has completed a foot and ankle reconstruction fellowship. Keith Wapner is in Philadelphia and has extensive experience with this type of problem. Read more...
