Background and purpose The control of intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) values clinically has gained considerable importance, as they affect organ functions and organ damage. Hence, the discussions on secure IAP values to be used in laparoscopic interventions still continue. In this study, the effects of low IAP values simultaneously on intrathoracic, intra-abdominal, and extra-abdominal organ damage are presented.
