Answer

Standard intraoperative monitoring is indicated. Dropping temperature, falling blood pressure, and increasing abdominal firmness can be signs of intra-abdominal compartment syndrome; these parameters should be checked at regular intervals throughout the procedure. After the operation, follow-up at regular intervals is warranted for wound care, advancement of weightbearing, and rehabilitation, depending on the specific procedure that was performed.
