que se insertará el instrumento de paracentesis; Condición abdominal severa . Paracentesis peritoneal es una punción quirúrgica de la cavidad peritoneal para la aspiración de ascitis, término que denota la acumulación. La paracentesis sin embargo no está libre de complicaciones, por lo que es particularmente importante dar coloides como reemplazo, para prevenirla.

B ile-stained ascites points to a biliary communication usually caused by gallstones, neoplasia or trauma.

Previous reports had shown had shown that surgical shunts can elieve intractable ascites and reverse hepatorenal failure Ariyan et alFranco et al Most patients psracentesis diuretic drugs, and those available currently are sufficiently powerful to allow sodium restriction to be relaxed and nutrition improved as treatment progresses.

Key words cirrhotic cardiomyopathy, ascites, hyperdynamic circulation. Such factors include recent heavy alcohol abuse, ingestion of unusually salty foods, and medicines.

Severe symptoms such as fits, vomitingconfusion and ataxia or very severe hyponatraemia requires treatment in an intensive care unit owing to the risks of respiratory arrest. Bacterial culture should be carried out by innoculating ascitic fluid into blood culture bottles as paracenteiss gives the highest yield of bacteria Runyon et al The knowledge of subtle cardiostructural changes that can be detected even in the early stages of preascitic cirrhosis have contributed to a better understanding of the cardiovascular derangement observed as disease severity progresses.

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. Patients who are clinically well can be treated with broadspectrum quinolones such as ciprofloxacin.

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. Bloody ascites can be due to trauma caused by liver biopsy, fine-needle piration, TIPPS insertion or, rarely, paracentesis. Hepatology 4,b.


A chest radiograph is needed to exclude underlying conditions, such as pneumonia, and pleural fluid, ascites and blood shoulcl be cultured. Excessive diuresis can cause hypovolaemia and renal failure, and accordingly daily fluid losses shoulcl be limited to ml.

One suggests that portal hypertension causes a loss of fluid into the peritoneun and leads to depletion of the intravascular volume underfilling theory with secondary and compensatory renal retention of sodium and water; another suggests that the fiver disease itself causes primary renal sodium and water retention leading to expansion of the vascular volume and hence the ascites overflow theory ; a third theory proposes a primary circulatory derangement resulting in a reduced effective arterial plasma volume with consequent renal retention of sodium and water Henriksen et al Portal hypertension is caused primarily by an increased resistance to blood flow which, in hepatic cirrhosis, occurs in the hepatic parenchyma.

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 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.

Occasionally, infection reaches the ascitic fluid from recognised sources elsewhere in the body and unusual sources include dental infections and the fallopian tubes.

SBI is almost always caused by a single organism, and alternative diagnoses such as organ perforation should be considered when multiple organisms are found. Pathogenesis of ascites formation and hepatorenal syndrome: 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 Seminars in Liver Disease 6,Un puerto permite que la paracentesis se realice en el hogar.

Diuresis starts within an hour within minutes of an intravenous dose and lasts for about six hours after an oral dose.

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. There may, therefore, be a case for paracentesis in patients with bleeding oesophageal varices and marked ascites, especially where other treatments pracentesis unsuccessful.


Paracentesis Abdominal

Three general theories have been proposed to explain renal retention of sodium in hepatic cirrhosis Ring-Larsen and Henriksen, 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.

Norfloxacin prevents spontaneous bacterial peritonitis recurrence in cirrhosis: Accordingly, preventative measures to support the circulation with a colloidal solution at the time of paracentesis are important as this prevents circulatory dysfunction. ACE-inhibitors reduce glomerular filtration rate and sodium excretion even in doses which do not reduce the blood pressure. Ascites, cirrhosis, detection, diagnosis, prognosis, complications, treatment.

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. Paracentesis reduces the free and wedged hepatic venous pressure without changing the hepatic venous pressure gradient and this persists for at least a week.

In view of its prognostic implications, the development of ascites should always lead to consideration of liver transplantation. Uncontrolled trials have shown that full or partial resolution of ascites follows a TIPPS in three quarters more of patients but hepatic encephalopathy appears for the first time in about a fifth, the need for diuretic treatment continues, and a half to two thirds of patients die within two years Ochs et alMartinet et al American Journal of the Medical Sciences,
