They found that bulging and dullness in the flanks and shifting dullness were most sensitive but of limited specifity, that a fluid thrill was specific but of limited sensitivity, and that the puddle sign in their hands was of very limited value.

Diuretic requirements after therapeutic paracentesis in non-azotemic patients with cirrhosis. Furthermore, the ascites protein may rise during diuretic therapy Hoefs Side-affects are usually due to paracrntesis and electrolyte imbalances, but gastrointestinal symptoms, skin rashes, parasthesiae, blood dyscrasias and hepatic and renal dysfunction occasionally occur.

The mesenteric capillaries also contribute to ascites and produce interstitial fluid with a low protein content as in other arts of the body Witte et al LaVeen continuous peritoneal-jugular shunt.

These patients need to be given sodium and water parenterally to replace complicafiones losses. Pleural effusion and hydrothorax can also occur below. Norfloxacin prevents spontaneous bacterial peritonitis complkcaciones in cirrhosis: TIPS is a porto-systemic shunt obtained by an intravascular insertion of a stent bridging a portal branch with an hepatic vein. Enoxaparin prevents portal vein thrombosis and liver decompensation in patients with advanced cirrhosis.

All these complications are rare in expert hands. Prognosis is related largely to liver function, and patients with lesser degrees of ascites and better liver function respond better to treatment ocmplicaciones survive longer. Ascites in hepatic cirrhosis is associated with advanced liver disease and with poor hepatic function and portal hypertension, and consequently it is also associated with a poor prognosis.

Portal hypertension is an important factor in the development of ascites aboveand relief of portal hypertension should therefore improve ascites.

Paracentesis Abdominal

The treatment of hepatic hydrothorax is difficult and often unsuccessful. Mainly, we wished to explore which of the predicting variables could be used to prefer large-volume paracentesis or TIPS.


The accuracy of the physical examination in the diagnosis of suspected ascites. Recurrence complicaiones SBP after recovery is common and occurs in about two thirds of patients within a year and in three quarters within two years Tao et al; Hiperuricaemia and hyperglcaemia occur but are rarely significant. Side-effects are uncommon, but thiazide can produce hepatic encephalopathy perhaps due to hypokalaernia alkalosis and an increased blood ammonia.

One of the first treatments of refractory ascites was peritoneo-venous shunt or LeVeen shunt. Ascites, cirrhosis, detection, diagnosis, prognosis, complicacipnes, treatment. Bloody ascites can also be caused by rupture of intra-abdominal varices or possibly leakage from dilated liver lymphatics as liver lymph paracenhesis cirrhosis contains significant numbers of red blood cells Dumont and Mulholland Accordingly, a strict selection of candidates could obviate most of such complications.

Local diseases in paracemtesis peritoneal cavity such as TB, malignant disease,and pancreatitis, damage com;licaciones and produce protein-rich ascites exudates. Retention of sodium by the kidneys is the main reason for this increase though renal water retention does occur in more advanced dasease table 1.

Bacteria probably reach the ascitic fluid as a result of bacteraemia, and as a high proportion of ascitic infections are with gut-related organisms, many must reach the blood by passing through the bowel wall.

The horizontal position approximately doubles the urinary excretion of sodium and water in response to diuretics and accordingly, at least in the early stages of treatment, Up to 6 hours of bed rest alter diuretic drugs are given is worthwhile Ring-Larsen et al JAMA,pp. Mild to moderate ascites can be treated as an outpatient, but more severe ascites is treated best in hospital as these patients usually have more severe liver damage and they more often have adverse reactions to therapy.

Another important aspect to be taken into account is the impact of refractory ascites therapy on the quality of life. Dig Liver Dis, 33pp. The hepatic venous have been used, including dextran Ruiz-del Arbol et alpolygeline Salerno et aland albumin Tito pressure gradient may, however, rise when circulatory dysfunction occurs indicating that the intrahepatic vascular resistance increases in these patients Ruiz-del-Arbol et al Notwithstanding, all these advantages should be weighted with the consistent higher risk of encephalopathy.


Half of the infusion can be given over 2 hours and the remainder over the following six hours after the procedure. Diagnosis of malignant ascites. Measurement of the daily urine sodium output is useful in patients who do not respond to dietary salt restriction and diuretics as the finding of a good sodium excretion implies the intake of excess salt.

The main indication for giving a thiazide is in patients not responding to spironolactone and a loop diuretic as the thiazides act at sites different from these drugs Olesen and Sigund LVP with albumin and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt TIPS are the most used strategies, and they will be specifically discussed.

Mean survival is shorter in patients who develop PPCD compared to those who do not. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt for refractory ascites: Circulating dysfunction, indicated by increased plasma renin, aldosterone and noradrenaline may be associated with renal impairment, and though this impairment is often reversible, this is not always the case.

Several such solutions et aland all are effective. The loop diuretics are the most powerful diuretics available acting on the ascending loop of Henle and to a lesser extent on the proximal tubules to inhibit sodium and chloride absorption.

Journal of the American Medical Association, Excessive diuresis can cause hypovolaemia and renal failure, and accordingly daily fluid losses shoulcl be limited to ml.

Total paracentesis associated with intravenous albumin management of patients with cirrhosis and ascites. This source needs to be identified and excluded. Surgical portasystemic shunts proved effective in the secondary prevention of variceal bleeding but have fallen into disuse because thay were associated with an increased occurrance of hepatic encephalopathy and did not prolong fife.
