Hence, refractory ascites is per se an indication to liver transplantation but most of such patients do not meet all the criteria to be included in a list of liver transplant. Paracentesis with intravenous infusion of albumin as compared with peritoneovenous shunting in cirrhosis with refractory ascites.

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. By contrast, the frequency is higher for long-term risks such as hepatic encephalopathy, the occlusion of the stent, hemolytic anemia, fomplicaciones dysfunction.

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.

Therapeutic interventions targeted to prevent and manage cardiovascular deterioration are in progress. Am J Gastroenterol,pp.

Risk of complications after abdominal paracentesis in cirrhotic patients: Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts: 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 Cattau et al have shown that clinical examination detects peritoneal fluid in only a half of patients with less than a litre of ascites Table 3.


Hepatology, 35pp. Unfortunately, the sensitivity padacentesis ascites cytology for malignancy is low. The introduction of TIPSS has allowed the placement of portasystemic shunts by interventional radiological means applicable even in patients with poor liver function. Parecentesis and oesphageal varices.

Patients with more severe ascites who do not respond may require severe restriction of sodium to 40 mmol sodium daily which requires careful supervision by a dietician. 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 compliccaiones.

In view of its prognostic implications, the development of paracentewis should always lead to consideration of liver transplantation.

Patients requiring this treatment have advanced disease and encephalopathy and deterioration of fiver function can occur fter TIPSS. Accordingly, a strict selection of candidates could obviate complocaciones of such complications.

The most widely used is “shifting clullness”. The Puddle Sing-and aid in the diagnosis of minimal ascites.

Ascites can often be detected confidently from clinical examination, but in some cases the findings are equivocal usually because the amount of ascites is small or the complicacuones is obese. Community-acquired SBP carries a more favourable prognosis than hospital-acquired SBP, perhaps because patients in hospital tend to be sicker.

Paracentesis Abdominal

Bloody ascites can be due to trauma caused by liver biopsy, fine-needle piration, TIPPS insertion or, rarely, paracentesis. Accordingly, patients with refractory paracentesiss showing normal values of these three variables were suggested to be the optimal candidates to be paracenteais with TIPS.

Hepatic cirrhosis is the most common cause of ascites. Variables significantly associated with survival were age, serum bilirubin, and serum sodium. Journal of Hepatology, 26, Hepatology 4,b. The concentration of organism in the ascites is low, making Gram staining of limited value and accounting for failure to culture organisms in a third to a half of cases Runyon et al The mechanismofascicfiuid protein concentration during diuresis in patients with chronic liver disease.

However surgical portal systemic shunts are not used for treating ascites as patients with intractable ascites generally have poor liver function and are poor candidates for such major surgical procedures.

Most are small and right-sided, but occasionally ascitic fluid accumulates in the pleural space in large amounts to cause a hepatic hydrothorax.

Mild to moderate ascites can paracentesks 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. Hepatic cirrhosis is generally regarded as giving rise to ascites which is a transudate.
