However, these patients usually have very poor liverfunction and the possibility of fiver transplantation should be considered.

They can produce hyperkalaemia and should not be given with spironolactone or potassium supplements or when renal failure is present. Total paracentesis of all ascites reduces the wedged hepatic venous pressure and recently it has been compliaciones also to decrease intravariceal pressure Kravetz et al Dig Liver Dis, 33pp. Accordingly, a strict selection of candidates could obviate most of such complications. One of the first treatments of refractory ascites was peritoneo-venous shunt or LeVeen shunt.

Paracentesis Abdominal

All, however, are associated with poor liver function and include activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system with high plasma and urine aldosterone, increased sympathetic activity possibly via a hepatorenal reflex arc, and the actions of such agents as arterial natriuric peptide, kallikrein-kinin prostaglandins, nitrous oxide, endothelin, and endotoxin. Pleurodesis and surgical repair of diaphragmatic defects is often unsuccessful and fraught with serious complications.

Hepatic cirrhosis is the most common cause of ascites. Requirements for the diagnosis of refractory ascites are: Conflict of interests The authors declare no conflict of interest. They are not wiclely used.

Bienvenido a siicsalud Contacto Inquietudes. The mechanismofascicfiuid protein concentration during diuresis in patients with chronic liver disease. Pleural effusion and hydrothorax can also occur below. It is caused by liver failure leading to complex interrelated circulatory and renal changes resulting in retention of compkicaciones and water and portal hypertension localising that sodium and water in the peritoneum.

In addition some patients, although affected by a severe liver disease do not rich the threshold to be admitted. Second, the peripheral release of potent vasodilators, mainly in the splanchnic vascular bed, causes a hyperdynamic circulation with high cardiac output and low peripheral resistances.


Results of a prospective, randomized, multicenter study Hepatology 21, Medicine 50, Norfloxacin prevents spontaneous bacterial peritonitis recurrence in cirrhosis: The most effective treatment is a third- generation cephalosporin such as cefotaxime 1g intravenously 8 hourly.

SBP carries a high mortaly and a high recurrence rate. TIPS is a porto-systemic shunt obtained by an intravascular insertion of a stent bridging a portal branch with an hepatic vein. Hemodynamic response to pharmacological treatment of portal hypertension and long-term prognosis of cirrhosis. Potassium depletion is widely regarded as cornmon in hepatic cirrhosis, but this may only be the case when diuretic drugs have been given Mas et al First, the increase of portal pressure causes peritoneal accumulation of fluids ascites in consequence of a high filtration rate at the sinusoidal level.

Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and the Department of Medicine. These patients should be regarded as having SBP and although asymptornatic patients may clear the ascitic infection spontaneously, it is probably safer to treat them with antibiotics. Accordingly, preventative measures to support the circulation with a colloidal solution at the time of paracentesis are important as this prevents circulatory dysfunction. Moreover, two relevant RCTs demonstrated that the use of LeVeen shunt to treat tense ascites was not superior to the treatment with repeated LVP and albumin infusion.

Paracentesiss, free fluid in the peritoneal cavity, indicates the presence of serious disease. To improve our services and products, we use “cookies” own or third parties authorized to show advertising related to client preferences through the analyses of navigation customer behavior.

Spironolactone is a safe drug but it can cause hyperkalaemia and potassium supplements including salt substitutes must not be given concomitantly. Surgical portasystemic shunts proved effective in the secondary prevention of variceal bleeding but have fallen paracenttesis disuse because thay were associated with an increased occurrance of hepatic encephalopathy and did not prolong fife. Paracentesis also improves respiratory function rapidly and relieves the respiratory distress of marked ascites, though diuretic treatment achieves the same end more slowly Chang et al Notwithstanding, all these advantages should be weighted with the consistent higher risk of paracentwsis.


At today, the main indications for TIPS are: In short, TIPSS can improve refractory ascites but the mortality is not improved and may even be increased, especially in Child C patients where liver function is very poor. In conclusion it is important to remember that almost all the clinical observations of this paper come from studies in which bare-stents were used instead of covered-ones.

This maximum dose will give a satisfactory response in about parzcentesis half of complicxciones Gatta et al The clinical features are those of cough, dyspnoea, chest pain or fever paraccentesis a patient with a pleural effusion, of an associated spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, or of unexplained deterioration in a patients condition.

A TIPSS shunt is probably the best treatment currently available as about half of patients have complete relief and aquarter partial relief Gordon et alStrauss et al Gastroenterology,pp. Paracejtesis survival is shorter in patients who develop PPCD compared to those who do not. 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.

This source needs to be identified and excluded. Side-affects are usually due to fluid and electrolyte imbalances, but gastrointestinal symptoms, skin rashes, parasthesiae, blood dyscrasias and hepatic and renal dysfunction occasionally occur. Seminars in Liver Disease 6,Excessive diuresis can cause hypovolaemia and renal failure, and accordingly daily fluid losses shoulcl be limited to ml.
