Abdominal Compartment Syndrome

Even though compartment syndrome is well identified to occur in the extremities, it also present in the abdomen and, some believe, in the intracranial cavity. Various clinical assets are linked with this syndrome and involve massive intra-abdominal or retroperitoneal hemorrhage, serious gut edema or intestinal obstruction, and ascites under various circumstances. Failure to recognize and immediately manage ACS can lend to poor prognosis as ACS is recognized as an independent predictor of mortality. Since prevention can improve organ malfunction, it is valuable that the diagnosis be considered in the suitable clinical situation. At-risk gentle populations should be usually monitored and tiered interventions should be initiated as a team approach to management. The present accepted consensus definitions neighboring the diagnosis and treatment of intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome are obtained.
