Abstract

Abdominal compartment syndrome is a well-described condition in which increased intra-abdominal pressure causes various physiologic derangements withadverse effects on cardiac, pulmonary, and renal function. A patient presented with radiation-induced distal colonic obstruction, abdominal distention, and severe bilateral leg edema. We performed a diverting transverse loopcolostomy as treatment for her obstruction. This resulted in massive, spontaneous diuresis with complete resolution of her lower-limb edema. Abdominal compartment syndrome due to colonic obstruction can contribute to the development of lower-extremity edema. Colon decompression with reduction of intra-abdominal pressure can lead to resolution of edema in this situation.
