EM@3AM - May 02, 2020 - By Sumpter R, Bridwell R Reviewed by: Long B ; Koyfman A
"Pearls:
  • High clinical suspicion of acute compartment syndrome in high energy mechanisms, Schatzker VI fractures, and associated fibular fractures requiring frequent compartment checks.
  • At minimum, 4 radiographic views of affected knee are recommended. CT can assist.
  • With the exception of non-displaced or non-depressed fracture without meniscal or ligamentous injury, expect to be calling orthopedics with a well-done exam for surgery.
  • Keep compartment syndrome at the forefront of your thoughts during initial assessment and reevaluations."
