ABSTRACT
1. The anterior tibial compartment syndrome is described with a brief discussion of initiating factors, anatomical relations and mechanism of production. 2. Two cases are reported in which the syndrome followed proximal arterial thrombosis. 3. Attention is called to the fact that proximal arterial occlusion, in addition to causing generalized ischemia of the extremity may favor intracompartmental pressure through postinfarctional swelling. 4. Treatment should consist of (a) direct surgery for the relief of proximal artery occlusion and (b) reduction of intracompartmental pressure by prompt fasciotomy when conservative measures are inadequate.

    Background: Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is one of the common causes of stroke in young people. Mortality in CVST, in addition to progressive thrombosis, is related to elevated intracranial pressure causing transtentorial herniation. The role of decompressive surgery in CVST is not...
