Supranormal Trauma Resuscitation and Abdominal Compartment Syndrome

Arch Surg. 2004;139(2):225-226. doi:10.1001/archsurg.139.2.225-c

I congratulate Dr Balogh and associates for their excellent article "Supranormal Trauma Resuscitation Causes More Cases of Abdominal Compartment Syndrome."1 Their findings reinforce several important aspects of intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) that we published about 5 years ago.2 The authors did not refer to our article, but the observations in the 2 studies are remarkably similar.
