Description: A compartmental syndrome is a condition where increased pressure within any closed space compromises the circulation and function of the tissues within that space. These syndromes are rare, but they rank high in terms of impact, patient outcomes, and medical liability. UW Orthopaedic resident Kyle Chun along with UW Medicine physicians Benjamin Starnes and David Barei open the program with a review of the clinical diagnosis, pathophysiology, and surgical approaches to comparmental syndromes. In the second half, they are joined by UW Medicine Drs. Sigvard T. Hansen and Frederick Matsen for a discussion centered on case studies and questions from an audience of peers and colleagues.
