This is a surgical technique video of a 43 year-old male with concern for compartment syndrome. We elected to measure the compartment pressures of the thigh using a side-port needle system. We also provide a brief review of compartment syndrome and explain how to interpret the readings obtained while measuring compartment pressures.
