Compartment Syndrome


Compartment syndrome results from excessive bleeding into muscle compartments that do not readily expand. The bleeding increases the pressure within the compartment, restricting circulation and depriving the muscle fibres of oxygen. This can result in death of the muscle tissue.

Causes of Compartment Syndrome:

Compartment Syndrome is usually associated with trauma from a
• car accident,
• a crush injury
• or surgery.
• It may also occur from compression either external, for example from tight bandages or plaster cast.
• Or it can arise internally, such as internal bleeding causing a haematoma. It is usually a medical emergency since the rapid increase in the pressure within the muscle compartment may completely cut off the blood supply to the affected limb.

Symptoms of Compartment Syndrome:

• Severe pain which is often severe and out of proportion to the injury, present at rest and may be worse on movement. This pain does not decrease with medication or with elevation of the affected limb.
• Burning sensation or tightness around the affected area
• Decreased sensation as the syndrome becomes more advanced.
• Pins and needles can occur in the arm or leg affected and there may be reduced sensation, paleness, coldness and/or tenseness
• The skin over the compartment will be tensely swollen and shiny.


How might there be a claim for medical negligence from cases of Compartment Syndrome?

Most claims are due to a delay in diagnosis and/or treatment once diagnosed. Time is of the essence once the condition is diagnosed, as there is only a small window of opportunity to prevent permanent nerve damage occurring.

It is vital that you instruct an expert medical negligence claims solicitor in order to get the best advice and information on your claim.
