Confusion/difference of opinion on investigating compartment syndrome. BJSM poll results are in!

The results of the latest BJSM home-page poll are in. We had a split!! Folks can’t agree on a very common procedure in sports medicine. Yikes!! Out of 120 respondents, 57% preferred that all 4 compartments are measured in both legs to diagnose chronic compartment syndrome. Unless both methods have equal outcomes a large proportion of sportspeople are getting suboptimal investigation and treatment!  Please submit your thoughts as a comment below or as an email to and we’ll post it as a Guest Blog. Hot topic!
