Excerpt from Abstract:

While lower extremity fractures are common injuries, concomitant compartment syndrome can lead to significant
implications and surgical release (fasciotomy) is essential. The aim of this study was to identify potential predictors
of compartment release and risk factors related to complications. Using a large nationwide cohort, this study compared
patients suffering from lower extremity fractures with and without compartment syndrome during their primary in-hospital
stay following trauma.
