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.

Paracentesis Abdominal

Such refractory ascites has paracenteis described as diureticresistant i. Diuretic requirements after therapeutic paracentesis in non-azotemic patients with cirrhosis.

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. Journal of Hepatology 6, Ascites not attributed to cirrhosis is usually due to intra-abdominal malignant disease and other causes are uncommon Table 6.

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 This emphasises the need to consider liver transpiantation in refractory ascites but where this is inappropriate TIPPS should be used particularly in Child B patients where liver funtion is better.

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 Initial treatment should be with diuretic drugs and sodium paracentezis abovebut his is often unsuccessful and many patients become uraemic as the dose of drugs is increased of or better effect.

Si no lo van a hospitalizar, haga arreglos para que alguien lo pueda llevar devuelta a casa. Patients who develop SBP tend to have advanced cirrhosis with obvious ascites, but this is not always the case.

High protein ascites in patients with uncomplicated hepatic cirrhosis.

They are often jaundiced, have hypoprothrombinaemia and hypoalbuminaemia, and classify as Group C in the Child-Pugh system. These patients need to be given sodium and water parenterally to replace their losses. Albumin solution is perhaps the most effective, but it is also the most expensive Table 9. Patients who do not respond to this treatment may be helped by a TIPSS procedure or a peritoneovenous shunt.

Such factors include recent heavy alcohol abuse, ingestion of unusually salty foods, and medicines. Hepatology Vol 17, No.


The hepatic venous have been used, including dextran Ruiz-del Arbol et alpolygeline Salerno et aland albumin Tito pressure gradient may, however, rise when circulatory dysfunction occurs indicating that the intrahepatic vascular resistance increases in these patients Ruiz-del-Arbol et al Hepatology 3, Cloudy or slightly or opaque ascites suggests the presence of infection below and indicates the need for an immediate ascites polymorphonuclear leucocyte cell count.

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. Ascites can sometimes be difficult to detect clinically and accordingly ultrasonic examination and diagnostic paracentesis should be done where a patient becomes ill for no obvious reason.

Pathogenesis of ascites formation and hepatorenal syndrome: Patients who are clinically well can be treated with broadspectrum quinolones such as ciprofloxacin. Therapeutic interventions targeted to prevent and manage cardiovascular deterioration are in progress.

Ascites can often be detected confidently from clinical examination, but in some cases the findings are equivocal usually because the amount parcentesis ascites is small or the patient is obese. Most patients respond to treatment with sodium restriction and diuretic drugs.

Journal of the American Medical Association, Results of a prospective, randomized, multicenter study Hepatology 21, However surgical portal systemic shunts are not used for treating ascites as patients with intractable ascites generally have poor liver function and are poor candidates for such major surgical procedures. 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 comppicaciones important in sodium retention in this condition.

It is usually complixaciones by malignant disease in adults paracentrsis rarely it has been found in cirrhosis possibly due to leakage from lymphatics Malagelada et al Hepatology 5, Para enviar un comentario, por favor complete el siguiente formulario.

Clinically evident ascites causes abdominal distention and bulging of the flanks.

Riesgos diferidos Se pueden desarrollar dos tipos de paracentessi diferidas: Journal of Hepatology, 26, It is caused by liver failure leading to complex interrelated circulatory and renal changes resulting in retention of sodium and water and portal hypertension localising that sodium and water in the peritoneum.

It usually develops insidiously without causing haemodynamic instability, and is most often due to a hepatocellular carcinoma. Other drugs can promoje renal retention of sodium and these include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, oestrogens and metociopramide. 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 Infection is a very serious complication of ascites spontaneous bacterial peritonitis and carries a generally poor prognosis.


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 Several such solutions et aland all are effective.

Peritonitis – Síntomas y causas – Mayo Clinic

Gastroenterology 85, 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.

Patients with more severe ascites who do not respond may require severe restriction of sodium to 40 mmol sodium daily which requires careful supervision by a dietician. The most effective treatment is a third- generation cephalosporin such as cefotaxime 1g intravenously 8 hourly. Initial treatment with cefotaxime 1g 6-hourly intravenously is recommended.

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. About a half of patients with tense ascites who do not have gastrointestinal bleeding, infection, encephalopathy, severe renal failure or hepatocellular carcinoma at presentation die within a year, and poor prognostic factors in these patients are shown in Table 7.
