Abstract

Acute compartment syndrome is a known possible complication of calcaneal fractures and few case reports have documented a recurrent event after initial surgical fasciotomies. This article describes a rare case demonstrating a recurrence of acute compartment syndrome within days of initial fasciotomies and surgical repair of a comminuted calcaneal fracture.
