Comparison of (a) IAP, (b) SOFA score, and (c) arterial lactates between patients treated with Bogota bag (Bogota group) and patients treated with VAC device (VAC group). Data are represented as mean ± standard deviation. Statistical analysis was a two-tailed Mann-Whitney test. *P < 0.01; **P < 0.001. IAP = intraabdominal pressure; SOFA = Sequential Organ Failure Assessment; T0 = before surgical treatment; T1-24 = first day (collected every four hours) after surgical treatment; T24C = 24 hours after abdomen closure; TMS = at monitoring suspension; VAC = vacuum-assisted closure.
