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.

Patients who do not respond to this treatment may be helped by a TIPSS procedure or a peritoneovenous shunt.

Medicine 50, In addition, there is an increased portal blood flow which acts to maintain and aggravate portal hypertension Bosch et al Bacterial culture should be carried out by innoculating ascitic fluid into blood culture bottles as this gives the highest yield of bacteria Runyon et al Es posible que le soliciten quitarse toda la ropa o parte de ella y que use una bata durante el examen.

The mechanisms underlying these theories are complex, poorly understood, and beyond the scope of this paper as they do not yet have important implications for the management of hepatic ascites. Liver transplantation needs to be considered in such a situation. The mesenteric capillaries also contribute to ascites and produce interstitial fluid with a low protein content as in other arts of the body Witte et al Bacteria probably reach the ascitic fluid as a result of bacteraemia, and as a high proportion of ascitic infections are with gut-related organisms, many must reach the blood by passing through the bowel wall.

Unfortunately, the sensitivity of ascites cytology for malignancy is low.

Paracentesis Abdominal

Occasionally, sodium restriction alone will allow resolution of ascites, particularly where a precipitating cause has been found and removed, but the great majority of patients require also diuretic drugs. Artificial Organs 12, A chest radiograph is needed to exclude underlying conditions, such as pneumonia, and pleural fluid, ascites and blood shoulcl be cultured.

Forma en que debo prepararme Es posible que deba sacarse sangre antes de realizar el procedimiento. Ascites in hepatic cirrhosis develops because of a considerable increase of total body sodium and water, and portal hypertension which localises much of that sodium and water to the peritoneal cavity Arroyo et al 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.


Potassium paracengesis is increased in response to increased sodium reabsorption in the distal tubules; calcium and magnesium excretion is also increased and metabolic alkalosis may occur.

Mild hyponatraemia is common in cirrhosis with ascites above and does not require treatment. Total paracentesis associated with intravenous albumin management of patients with cirrhosis and ascites. Blood and ascites culture should also be done, and the chance of isolating an organism from se ascites is best if the fluid is drawn into blood culture bottles Runyon et al Most patients respond to treatment with sodium restriction and diuretic drugs.

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. paracenteais

Abstract Cirrhotic cardiomyopathy has recently gained the dignity of a new clinical entity. 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 pzracentesis a Le Veen shunt lt is xomplicaciones 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.

This source needs to be identified and excluded. Such factors include recent heavy alcohol abuse, ingestion of unusually salty foods, and medicines. Ascites not attributed to cirrhosis is usually due to intra-abdominal malignant disease and other causes are uncommon Table 6. However, these patients usually have very poor liverfunction and the possibility of fiver transplantation should be considered. Mechanism and Effect on Hepatic Hemodynamics in Cirrhosis.


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

Bienvenido a siicsalud Contacto Inquietudes. Total volume paracentesis decreases variceal pressure, size, and variceal wall tension in cirrhotic patients. Diastolic dysfunction is frequently detected in this setting and heart structural changes are being characterized. Mild pagacentesis moderate ascites can be 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.


Hepatitic cirrhosis includes coexistant hepatocellular paracenteis and malignant disease ecludes hepatocellular carcinoma. 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 Sodium depletion Rarely, patients become truly sodium and water depleted following large fluid losses by paracentesis, diuresis or enteric losses.

Accordingly, preventative measures to support the circulation with a colloidal solution at the time of paracentesis are important as this prevents circulatory dysfunction. Cytology of ascites is important as malignant cells can be identified reliably in ascites sediment by this technique.

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 very occasionally.

Drugs sometimes contain significant amounts of sodium including some antacids and alginates, aspirin, fybogel, phenytoin and all effervescent preparations.

Hepatology 5, Key words cirrhotic cardiomyopathy, ascites, hyperdynamic circulation. Portal hypertension is caused primarily by an increased resistance to blood flow which, in hepatic cirrhosis, occurs in the hepatic parenchyma. Dr and oesphageal varices. 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.

In view of its prognostic implications, the development of ascites should always lead to consideration of liver transplantation. Journal of Hepatology 6,
