Intra-abdominal hypertension in cardiac surgery patients: a multicenter observational sub-study of the Accuryn registry.

J Clin Monit Comput 2022 Jun 13. Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Department of Anesthesiology, Division of Critical Care Medicine, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) is frequently present in the critically ill and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Conventionally, intermittent 'spot-check' manual measurements of bladder pressure in those perceived as high risk are used as surrogates for intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). True patterns of IAH remain unknown. Read More

Trauma-induced capillary leak syndrome after penetrating chest injury: Manifestation of massive ascites and pulmonary secretions aggravated by transfusion.

Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg 2022 Jun;28(6):863-866

Department of Surgery, National Medical Center, Seoul-Korea.

Trauma with prolonged shock can cause systemic capillary leak syndrome regardless of the site of injury and a transfusion can aggravate it. The systemic capillary leak induces both an abdominal compartment syndrome and pulmonary edema, and a transfusion can aggra-vate these sequelae within hours. In our case, 21-year-old man with a penetrating injury in his left thorax experienced delay in rescue and definitive surgery. Read More

Introducing a New Technique for Fascial Closure to Avoid Renal Allograft Compartment Syndrome in Pediatric Recipients: The Use of Tutoplast Fascia Lata.

Front Surg 2022 6;9:840055. Epub 2022 May 6.

Department Paediatric Urology, Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Introduction: Renal allograft compartment syndrome (RACS) is a complication that infrequently occurs after renal transplantation. Tight muscle closure may lead to RACS due to compression of renal parenchyma or kinking of the renal vessels. Many techniques have been proposed in an attempt to achieve tension-free closure, which can be specially challenging in child recipients. Read More

Preliminary study of reliability of transcutaneous sensors in measuring intraabdominal pressure.

Sci Rep 2022 May 18;12(1):8268. Epub 2022 May 18.

Department of Abdominal Surgery, University Medical Centre Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Early recognition of elevated intraabdominal pressure (IAP) in critically ill patients is essential, since it can result in abdominal compartment syndrome, which is a life-threatening condition. The measurement of intravesical pressure is currently considered the gold standard for IAP assessment. Alternative methods have been proposed, where IAP assessment is based on measuring abdominal wall tension, which reflects the pressure in the abdominal cavity. Read More

Utility of plasma CA125 as a proxy of intra-abdominal pressure in patients with acute heart failure.

Eur Heart J Acute Cardiovasc Care 2022 Jun;11(6):453-460

Cardiology Department, Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valencia, INCLIVA, Departamento de Medicina, Universitat de València, Valencia, Spain.

Aims: Increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) is now considered a potential contributor to organ damage and disease progression in acute heart failure (AHF). In this work, we aimed to determine if antigen carbohydrate 125 (CA125) is associated with IAP and to identify a cutpoint of CA125 useful for ruling out intra-abdominal hypertension (defined as IAP ≥ 12 mmHg).

Methods And Results: We prospectively evaluated a cohort of 53 patients admitted with AHF in which IAP was measured within the first 24-h of admission. Read More

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Centro Hospitalar Tondela-Viseu, Viseu, Portugal.

Acute abdomen in pregnancy represents a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge, despite the current advances in modern medicine, since the typical symptoms and altered laboratory parameters mimic normal pregnancy. Acute appendicitis is the most common nonobstetric surgical emergency during pregnancy, with an incidence of 1 per 500-2000 pregnancies. Delayed diagnosis and reluctance to operate on a pregnant woman predispose to adverse maternal and fetal outcomes. Read More

Validity and reliability of a novel, non-invasive tool and method to measure intra-abdominal pressure in vivo.

J Biomech 2022 May 21;137:111096. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

McGill University, Department of Mechanical Engineering, 845 Sherbrooke St. W, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, H3A 0G4. Electronic address:

Intra-abdominal hypertension has been recorded in between 20 and 50% of intensive care unit patients, with rates increasing in ventilated patients. This increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) can reduce blood flow to vital organs, perpetuating further pressure build-up as organs become unable to drain excess fluids. Measurement of IAP for the diagnosis of intra-abdominal hypertension remains highly invasive, thus, a non-invasive alternative to traditional IAP measurement was developed and validated, herein.

Management of a severe abdominal compartment complicating fulminant cardiogenic-septic shock: An abdominal arterio-venous single-tube ECMO bypass saved a young patient's life after OHCA.

Perfusion 2022 Apr 10:2676591221087545. Epub 2022 Apr 10.

Department of Cardiology, Angiology and Intensive Care Medicine, University Hospital (UKGM) Marburg, Marburg, Germany.

Introduction: In severe cardiogenic shock, for example, following cardiac arrest, the implantation of an extracorporeal hemodynamic assist device often seems to be the last option to save a patient's life. However, even though our guidelines provide a class-IIa-recommendation to implant a veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (vaECMO) device in these patients, the accompanying disease- and device-associated complications and their consequences remain challenging to handle.

Case Presentation: A 43-year-old patient presented with severe cardiogenic-septic shock with a complicating abdominal compartment due to a prolonged out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Read More

Abdominal compartment syndrome: an often overlooked cause of acute kidney injury.

J Nephrol 2022 Apr 5. Epub 2022 Apr 5.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Koc University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is defined as any organ dysfunction caused by intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH), referred as intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) ≥ 12 mm Hg according to the World Society of Abdominal Compartment Syndrome. Abdominal compartment syndrome develops in most cases when IAP rises above 20 mmHg. Abdominal compartment syndrome, while being a treatable and even preventable condition if detected early in the stage of intra-abdominal hypertension, is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality if diagnosis is delayed: therefore, early detection is essential.
