Percutaneous Catheter Decompression in the Treatment of Elevated Intra-abdominal Pressure

Status: Completed
Location: See location...
Intervention Type: Procedure
Study Type: Interventional
Study Phase: Phase 3
SUMMARY

Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) have traditionally been treated surgically through emergent laparotomy. Intensivist-performed bedside drainage of free intra-peritoneal fluid or blood [percutaneous catheter decompression (PCD)] has been suggested as a less-invasive alternative to traditional open abdominal decompression (OAD). This study assesses the relative efficacy of PCD vs. OAD in reducing elevated intra-abdominal pressure (IAP).
