Compartment Syndrome occurs when swelling in one “compartment” of the body, be it an arm or a leg or even the torso, is unable to be alleviated because the fluid cannot dissipate into other parts of the body due to the fascia.  The fascia is the tissue, made largely of collagen, that prevents the organs or muscle of one compartment from shifting into another.  Most of the time this is a good thing, unless swelling needs to be relieved.
