Chronic exertional compartment syndrome of the leg is a debilitating lower extremity condition in which increased intracompartmental pressure impedes blood flow to the involved compartments of the distal lower extremity, resulting in ischemia and pain. Owing to the lack of success with conservative management, most surgeons perform complete release fasciotomy as the preferred method of fasciotomy to avoid an unsuccessful release or outcome
