lateral compartment of leg

[TA]
lateral portion of space enclosed by the deep fascia of the leg, separated from the anterior and posterior compartments by the anterior and posterior intermuscular septa of leg, respectively, that attach to the fibula; contains evertors of the foot, innervated by the superficial fibular (peroneal) nerve.

(6) showed that 80% of cases with anterior cruciate ligament injury have contusion of the lateral compartment. Furthermore, lateral tibial plateau contusion was detected on the lateral femoral condyle by 50% and on the lateral tibial plateau by 50%; contusion finding was detected on multiple zones in 30% of these patients (6).
Neck dissection was performed from levels II to V in case of metastasis to the lateral compartment of the neck in the preoperative evaluation and also in time following thyroid surgery The dissection descriptions of the central region were performed according to the consensus report of the American Thyroid Association Surgery Working Group [17].
The stylohyoid bone divides the pouch into a fairly large medial compartment and a smaller lateral compartment. The external carotid and maxillary arteries are the larger vessels in the lateral compartment.
Background: The quality of the lateral compartment cartilage is important to preoperative evaluation and prognostic prediction of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA).
Changes in mJSW as seen on x-ray between those in group 1 and those on placebo were significant for the lateral compartment, with an increase in mJSW at the higher doses and a decline in the placebo group, but not for the medial compartment.
The posterior compartment had a 100% improvement in the pain after 20 minutes of massage, the lateral compartment improved the pain completely after around 40 minutes, and the anterior compartment improved the pain by about 70% within one hour.
Observations on rotatory instability of the lateral compartment of the knee: experimental studies on the functional anatomy and the pathomechanism of the true and the reversed pivot shift sign.
The risk factors for recurrent nodal disease in the lateral compartment are extra-nodal extension of lymph node metastases and the ratio between positive and excised lymph nodes during the initial neck dissection (19).
In the lateral compartment, the width of the lateral condyle was determined and JSW was measured starting from the lateral aspect of the condyle to a point equal to 40% of the total width of the condyle (as shown in Figure 3).
The contact pressure in the lateral compartment increases in radial tears and root avulsions and decreases after transosseous pull-out refixation as shown in a cadaveric knee setup by Forkel et al.
Despite this clear trend of lateral compartment nodes serving as primary stations for the spread of thyroglossal observed in some studies [12, 23], prophylactic lateral dissection in the absence of detectable nodal metastases has not been routinely recommended by any authors [5, 8, 24], even though regional neck dissection is recommended in high-risk group [7].
