PMID:  8782476     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
1. ACS is caused by an acute increase in intra-abdominal pressure, usually as a result of intra-abdominal hemorrhage. 2. The most common and significant complications are respiratory and renal failure. 3. Abdominal decompression promptly reverses the complications of ACS. 4. Failure to recognize and treat ACS is inevitably fatal.
