Treatment is only needed in patients with more marked hyponatraermia and should not be used without good reason as it can only add to the patient’s discomfort. 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. Es posible que le soliciten quitarse toda la ropa o parte de ella y que use una bata durante el examen. This is characterised by infection in a pleural effusion which cannot be attributed to any local cause Xiol et al Comparison of ascitic fibrinectin, cholesterol and serum-ascites albumin difference.

The puddle sign is little used, and the fluid thrill is an interesting observation in patients with ascites visible even to the casual observer.

Other drugs can promoje renal retention of sodium and paracentesi include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, oestrogens and metociopramide.

In addition, there is an increased portal blood flow which acts to maintain and aggravate portal hypertension Bosch et al The thiazides are diuretics of intermediate potency which are little used in ascites due to hepatic cirrhosis. Diastolic dysfunction is frequently detected in this setting and heart structural changes are being characterized.


Potassium excretion is increased in response to increased sodium reabsorption in the distal tubules; calcium and magnesium excretion is also increased and metabolic alkalosis may occur. Si no lo van a hospitalizar, haga arreglos para que alguien lo pueda llevar devuelta a casa.

Initial treatment should be with diuretic drugs and sodium restriction abovebut his is often unsuccessful and many patients become uraemic as the dose of drugs is increased of or better effect. Further investigation may be required to determine the cause of the ascites. Analysis of the ascitic fluid is helpful in identifying the cause of the ascites and in recognising complications such as infection and neoplasia Table 5.

Most patients require diuretic drugs, and those available currently are sufficiently powerful to allow sodium restriction to be relaxed and nutrition improved as treatment progresses. Antibiotic prophylaxis is important to prevent recurrence and liver transpiantation shoulcl be considered.

Measurement of the daily urine sodium output is useful in patients who do not complocaciones to dietary oaracentesis restriction and diuretics as the finding of a good sodium excretion implies the intake of excess salt.

Este procedimiento a menudo se realiza en pacientes ambulatorios. Randomized comparative study of hemacel vs. 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 Cloudy or slightly or opaque ascites suggests the presence of infection below and indicates the need for an immediate ascites polymorphonuclear leucocyte cell count.

Hepatitic cirrhosis includes coexistant hepatocellular carcinoma and malignant disease ecludes hepatocellular carcinoma. 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.


Ds in cirrhosis is usually clear and straw or light green in colour, but it can also be cloudy, bloo -stained chylous or bile -stained. Cytology of ascites is important as malignant cells can be identified reliably in ascites sediment by this technique. Rarely, measurement of the portal venous pressure may reveal otherwise occult hepatic cirrhosis by revealing portal hypertension.

Pleurodesis and surgical repair of diaphragmatic defects is often unsuccessful and fraught with serious complications. Clinically evident ascites causes abdominal distention and bulging of the flanks.

Spironolactone is generally regarded as the drug of choice for longterin treatment, other diuretics are added when spironolactone produces an inadequate diuresis, and bendrofluazide is needed only complicackones occasionally. Therapeutic interventions targeted to paracnetesis and manage cardiovascular deterioration are in progress.

This paper considers the ascites of chronic liver disease, including its detection, diagnosis, prognosis, complications and treatment. Ascitic fluid and blood culture shoulcl also be done below. Decompensated cirrhosis is characterized by decreased arterial blood pressure and peripheral vascular resistances, increased cardiac output and heart rate in the setting of hyperdynamic circulation favoured by total blood volume expansion, circulatory overload and overactivity of the endogenous vasoactive systems.
