WCACS 2017 Embracing the Concept of the Abdominal Compartment as a Functional Whole

The 8th World Congress of the Abdominal Compartment Society in Banff in 2017 follows on the previous successful meetings in Ghent, Cartagena, Colombia, Orlando, USA and Dublin, Ireland, Antwept, Belgium, and Noosa, Australia.

The WSACS was formed in Australia after the second World Congress in 2004 and was primarily a multidisciplinary society of clinicians involved in day-to-day care of seriously ill and injured patients. Although originally a small the Society has been incredibly productive in writing and knowledge translation with the generation of a textbook and Internationally accepted Consensus Guidelines concerning the Definitions, Management, and Research Methodology, which undergo continuous re-evaluation and reassessment with new knowledge. As such the Society has recently updated its practice guidelines on ACS is fostering a greater understanding worldwide of intra-abdominal hypertension and ACS.


Call for abstracts
Instructions for submitting abstracts

We invite prospective participants to submit abstracts in a Word document.

Abstracts are welcomed as they are an essential element of all WCACS meetings. We welcome abstracts on clinical and experimental research related to the abdominal compartment. Only accepted abstracts which are presented during the Congress will be published in the congress proceedings.
