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.

Occasionally, infection reaches the ascitic fluid from recognised sources elsewhere in the body and unusual sources include dental infections and the fallopian tubes. It is usually caused by malignant disease in adults but rarely it has been found in cirrhosis possibly due to leakage from lymphatics Malagelada et al Previous reports had shown had shown that surgical shunts can elieve intractable ascites and reverse hepatorenal failure Ariyan et alFranco et al Analysis of the pleural and peritoneal fluids shows that both share the features of a transudate, and in difficult cases 99m Tc sulphur colloid injected into the peritoneum can be shown subsequently to accumulate in the pleura Rubenstein et al Norfloxacin is a poorly absorbed quinolone which reduces the aerobic Gram negative gut flora without suppressing the anaerobic flora and it has proved successful in reducing recurrance of SBP.

However, these patients usually have very poor liverfunction and the possibility of fiver transplantation should be considered. Hepatology 3, Se aconseja programar que un familiar o un amigo lo lleve a su hogar una vez concluido el procedimiento.

Thoracentesis gives immediate relief from dyspnoca but usually only has a transient effect with repeated treatments eeded up to weekly. Chronic parenchymal liver disease is the most cornmon cause of ascites, and Table 6 shows the main complicacuones from which it needs to be differentiated.

Seminars in Liver Disease 6,Ascites is an important development in cirrhosis as it implies a generally poor long term prognosis. In the case of hepatic cirrhosis, this includes imaging to detect cirrhosis, portal hypertension and complications of cirrhosis such as hepatocellular carcinoma, the causes of cirrhosis, and endoscopy for detection of oesophago-gastric varices which imply portal hypertension.


Hepatology Vol 17, No. Paracentesis also improves respiratory function rapidly and relieves the respiratory distress of marked ascites, though diuretic treatment achieves the same end more slowly Chang 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.

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.

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. ACE-inhibitors reduce glomerular filtration rate and sodium excretion even in doses which do not reduce the blood pressure. 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.

Total paracentesis of all ascites reduces the wedged hepatic venous pressure and recently it has been reported also to decrease intravariceal pressure Kravetz et al Hepatology 8, paracentesls, Before diagnosing refractory ascites it is important to exclude unrecognised inappropriate sodium intake, failure to take diuretic drugs concomitant drug therapy causing sodium retention above and ascites due to causes other cimplicaciones cirrhosis Table 6 even in a patient with cirrhosis.

Un puerto permite que la paracentesis se realice en el hogar. Potassium-sparing diuretics Spironolactone, an aldosterone antagonist, is widely regarded as the drug of first choice for ascites in hepatic cirrhosis, perhaps because hyperalclosteronism is relatively so important in sodium retention in this condition. Bienvenido paracentedis siicsalud Contacto Inquietudes. This is done most safely by measuring the complicacionnes hepatic venous complicacioens.

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. This is generally taken to mean a combination of sodium restriction and diuretic drugs, but paracentesis is used increasingly as an initial treatment for ascites owing to the speed with which it can be applied and a consequent reduction in hospital stay above.


In practice, shifting dullness is the sign most used though it generally requires the presence of more than a litre of fluid and probably more in obese patients.

Infection, including SBP, is also cornmon following acute gastrointestinal bleeding and these infections can be prevented by Norfloxacin mg twice daily Rimola et al; Ascitic fluid and blood culture shoulcl also be done below. Most are small and right-sided, but occasionally ascitic fluid accumulates in the pleural space in large amounts to cause a hepatic hydrothorax.

Therapeutic interventions targeted to prevent and manage cardiovascular deterioration are in progress. There may, therefore, be a case for paracentesis in patients with bleeding oesophageal varices and marked ascites, especially where other treatments are unsuccessful.

Most of the peritoneal fluid originates from the hepatic sinusoids which are high1y permeable and produce protein-rich interstitial fluid explaining the high ascites protein content in acute obstruction of the hepatic venous outflow e. Total paracentesis associated with intravenous albumin management of patients with cirrhosis and ascites. Aminoglycosides were used previously but are now coplicaciones owing to their renal toxicity.

Renal sodium retention is marked in ascites caused by hepatic cirrhosis aboveparticularly when the ascites is severe and hepatic dysfunction marked, and accordingly restriction of sodium intake is important, particulary in initial treatment.

Many patients acquire SBP while in hospital, and though these are likely the more ill and susceptible patients, intravascular cannulae and invasive investigations producing bacteraemia are additional important factors.
