La paracentesis sin embargo no está libre de complicaciones, por lo que es particularmente importante dar coloides como reemplazo, para prevenirla.

Half of the infusion can be given over 2 hours and the remainder over the following paracentesls hours after the procedure. First, the increase of portal pressure causes peritoneal accumulation of fluids ascites in consequence of a high filtration rate at the sinusoidal level. Semin Liver Dis, 28pp.

Paracentesis Abdominal

In advanced liver disease there is also a reduced ability to excret free water usually associated with a reduced glomerula filtration rate which contributes significantly to the hyponatraemia cornmonly seen in such patients. Recognition, investigation and treatment. There may, therefore, be a case for paracentesis in patients with bleeding oesophageal varices and marked ascites, especially where other treatments are unsuccessful. Investigation is important as ascites is not always dueto cirrhosis, may bethe consequence of complications of cirrhosis such as hepatocellular carcinoma, and may be associated with infection which is fatal if untreated.

Gastroenterology 97, Gastroenterology 85, LVP with albumin and ccomplicaciones intrahepatic portosystemic shunt TIPS paracenteesis the most used strategies, and they will be specifically discussed. Spironolactone is generally regarded as the drug of choice for longterin treatment, other diuretics are laracentesis when spironolactone produces an complicaciomes diuresis, and bendrofluazide is needed only very occasionally. 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.

They are often jaundiced, have hypoprothrombinaemia and hypoalbuminaemia, and classify as Group C in the Child-Pugh system. Parecentesis and oesphageal varices.

Hepatology, 35pp. Ascites can give rise to a number of secondary abdominal features including umbilical eversion, herniae, pale abdominal striae, scrotal oedema, and meralgia paresthetica from entrapment of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh.

Unfortunately, the sensitivity of ascites cytology for malignancy is low. Important factors intreating ascites include removing precipitating factors, controlling sodium intake and sometimes water intakepromoting sodium excretion with diuretic drugs, removing ascites by paracentesis, and diverting ascitic fluid into the systemic circulation via a transjugular intrahepatic portal systemic stent TIPSS shunt or a Le Veen shunt lt is very doubtful whether any of this treatment prolongs life, and as the prognosis for patients with hepatic cirrhosis and ascites is generally poor, liver transplantation shoulcl be considered.


Bloody ascites can also be caused by rupture of intra-abdominal varices or possibly leakage from dilated liver lymphatics as liver lymph in cirrhosis contains significant numbers of red blood cells Dumont and Mulholland Liver Int, 30pp.

Refractory or resistantascites is broadly definedas ascites resistant to medical therapy Arroyo et al 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 Recently, covered stents has reduced the complications caused by failure of the stent patency.

Although there are no studies specifically aimed to explore this possibility, it is reasonable that refractory ascites could be prevented by stopping the progression of liver damage, as can be achieved by removing the etiologic factors of liver disease or by reducing the portal pressure.

Initial sodium restriction can be modest when diuretics are used simultaneously with intake reduced to about 80 mmol daily by avoiding intrinsically salty food and adding no salt in cooking or at table “no acIded salt diet.

Diuresis can then be produced by gradually increasing the dose of diuretics given. In addition, in patients with advanced cirrhosis and ascites, TIPS can improve the nutritional status by favoring a nitrogen positive balance.

[Paracentesis as abdominal decompression therapy in neuroblastoma MS with massive hepatomegaly].

Indeed, the rapid and complete efficacy in reducing ascites with rare complications made LVP plus albumin the first line of treatment for tense ascites. Side-effects are uncommon, but thiazide can produce hepatic encephalopathy perhaps due to hypokalaernia alkalosis and an increased blood ammonia. Community-acquired SBP carries a more favourable prognosis than hospital-acquired SBP, perhaps because patients in hospital tend complicacione be sicker.

A variant of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis. By contrast, the frequency is higher for long-term risks such as hepatic encephalopathy, the occlusion of the stent, hemolytic anemia, cardiac dysfunction. Cytology of ascites is important as malignant cells can be complicacines reliably in ascites sediment by this technique.



Blood culture should also be done as organisms are isolated in some cases and they reflect those found in the ascitic fluid Conn et al, Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol, 7pp. SBI develops in patients with advanced cirrhosis who are susceptible to infection generally and specifically in their ascitic compicaciones collections. Hiperuricaemia and hyperglcaemia occur paracentesiis are rarely significant. Facing the availability of therapeutic interventions paracentesis, transjugular intrahepatic xomplicaciones shunt -TIPS, peritoneovenous shunt, liver transplantation currently employed to manage the life-threatening complications of the most advanced phases of cirrhosis, the knowledge of their impact on cardiovascular function is of paramount relevance.

Ascites not attributed to cirrhosis is usually due to intra-abdominal malignant disease and other causes are uncommon Table 6. Severe symptoms such as fits, vomitingconfusion and ataxia or very severe hyponatraemia requires treatment in an intensive care paracenteeis owing to the risks of respiratory arrest.

Patients who develop SBP tend to have advanced cirrhosis with obvious ascites, but this is not always the case. However, these patients usually have very poor liverfunction and the possibility of fiver transplantation should be considered. Hepatology Vol 17, No. TIPS transgiugular-intrahepatic portosystemic shunt TIPS is a porto-systemic shunt obtained by an intravascular insertion of a stent bridging a portal branch paracentrsis an hepatic vein. This treatment takes time, and increasingly doctors use therapeutic paracentesis with sodium restriction and diuretics to prevent recurrence of ascites.

This source needs to be identified and excluded. Rarely, measurement of the portal venous pressure may reveal otherwise occult hepatic cirrhosis by revealing portal hypertension.

The supra-additive natriuretic effect additional of quinethazone or bendrofflumethiazide during long-term treatment with furosemide and spironolactone. Journal of the American Medical Association, Several such solutions et aland all are effective. Pathogenesis of ascites formation and hepatorenal syndrome:
