The arch mechanism is not in place at birth and generally does not develop before the age of 3 years.

The resultant stasis further increases the compartmental pressure impeding arterial flow. The tissue initially suffers from hypoxia, then ischemia, creating a cascade of tissue damage, edema, congestion and vascular insufficiency.
