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.

Hepatology 5, Spironolactone is a safe drug but it can cause hyperkalaemia and potassium supplements including salt substitutes must not be given concomitantly. Local diseases in the peritoneal cavity such as TB, malignant disease,and pancreatitis, damage capillaries and produce protein-rich ascites exudates.

Peritonitis – Síntomas y causas – Mayo Clinic

Blood and ascites culture should also be done, and the chance of isolating an organism from the ascites is best if the fluid is drawn into blood culture bottles Runyon et al 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.

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

Once the transport capacity of the lymphatics is exceeded fluid accumulates in the peritoneal cavity and eventually ascites becomes evident. There may, therefore, be a case for paracentesis in patients with bleeding oesophageal varices and marked ascites, especially where comlicaciones treatments are unsuccessful.

The “puddle sing” is said to be able to detect as little as ml of ascites Lawson and Weissbeinand a “fluid thrill” is considered very specific. Patients paracenntesis cirrhosis and ascites complicackones often malnourished, and this modest reduction in salt intake allows the diet to remain reasonably palatable which is important in maintaining nutrition.

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. Ascites is an important development in cirrhosis as it implies a generally poor long term prognosis. 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 Prognosis is related largely to liver function, and patients with lesser degrees of ascites paracenesis better liver function respond better to treatment and survive longer.

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. Journal of the American Medical Association, 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.

The development of uraemia is a serious prognostic sign. Gastrointestinal symptoms, headache, drowsiness, skin rashes, impotence and agranulocytosis are uncornmon or rare side- effects. They are not wiclely used. These factors cause an increased filtration pressure in the hepatic sinusoids and in the mesenteric capillaries leading to increased passage of fluid into the peritoneal cavity Witte et al Furthermore, the ascites protein may rise during diuretic therapy Hoefs 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 Abdominal

Initial treatment with cefotaxime 1g 6-hourly intravenously is recommended. Increased susceptibility to infection of the ascitic fluid is reflected in low ascites protein concentrations which includes low ascites concentrations of opsonic factors such as immunoglobulins,complement, and fibronectin. 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.

Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and the Department of Medicine. Surgical portasystemic shunts proved effective in the secondary prevention of variceal bleeding but have fallen into disuse because thay were associated with an increased occurrance of hepatic encephalopathy and did not prolong fife.

Seminars in Liver Disease 6,Liver transplantation needs to be considered in such a situation. Digestive Diseases and Sciences 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. Este procedimiento usualmente se completa en alrededor de dos horas.


Paracentesis, however, needs to be done carefully and with aseptic precautions as it carries potentially serious complications including bacterial peritonitis and haemoperitoneum.

Blood culture should also be done as organisms are isolated in some cases complicacionse they reflect those found in the ascitic fluid Conn et al, Three general theories have been proposed to explain renal retention of sodium in hepatic cirrhosis Ring-Larsen and Henriksen, Circulating dysfunction, indicated by increased plasma renin, aldosterone and noradrenaline may be associated with paracengesis impairment, and though this impairment is often reversible, this is not always the case.

Paracentesis reduces the free and wedged hepatic venous pressure apracentesis changing the hepatic venous pressure gradient and this persists for at least a week. Hiperuricaemia and hyperglcaemia occur but are rarely significant.

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

Unfortunately, the sensitivity of ascites cytology for malignancy is low. 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. Mild hyponatraemia is common in cirrhosis with ascites above and does not require treatment. Side-effects are ds, but thiazide can produce hepatic encephalopathy perhaps due to hypokalaernia alkalosis and an increased blood ammonia.

Pathophysiology of ascites and functional renal failure in cirrhosis. 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.

Es posible que pueda permanecer despierto o no, y eso depende de la intensidad del sedante. It usually develops insidiously without causing haemodynamic instability, and is most often due to a hepatocellular carcinoma. Chronic parenchymal liver disease is the most cornmon cause of ascites, and Table 6 shows the main conditions from which it needs to be differentiated. Accordingly, preventative measures to support the circulation complicaciojes a colloidal solution at the time of paracentesis are important as this prevents circulatory dysfunction.

Hepatic cirrhosis is generally regarded as giving rise to ascites which is a transudate.
