The World Society of the Abdominal Compartment Syndrome (WSACS) was founded at the 2004 World Congress of the Abdominal Compartment Syndrome (WCACS). All who have an interest in the diagnosis, management, and/or treatment of Intra-Abdominal Hypertension (IAH) and Abdominal Compartment Syndrome (ACS) are invited to join the Society. The mission of the WSACS is to promote research, foster education, and improve the survival of patients with IAH / ACS by bringing together physicians, nurses, and others from a variety of clinical disciplines to share information on effective management strategies for reducing the significant morbidity and mortality of IAH / ACS.
