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

Paracentesis Abdominal

Second, the peripheral release of potent vasodilators, mainly in the splanchnic vascular bed, causes a hyperdynamic circulation with high cardiac output and low peripheral resistances. SBP carries a high mortaly and a high recurrence rate.

A more recent device to treat refractory ascites is Alpha Pump, 16 an implanted pump for the automated low-flow removal of ascites from the peritoneal cavity into the paracehtesis. Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhosis: Pathophysiology of ascites and functional renal failure in cirrhosis. Gastroenterology 97, The authors declare no conflict of interest.

Diagnosis of malignant ascites.


Thus, when a patient with cimplicaciones becomes unwell or develops hepatic encephalopathy for no obvious reason, SBP should be sought. Ultrasonography is particularly useful in identifying small amounts of ascites as it can detect as little as mI of free peritoneal fluid Goldberg et aland in such cases it allows the aspiration of fluid for analysis.

Gastroenterology 85, 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 This paper considers the ascites of chronic liver disease, including its detection, diagnosis, prognosis, complications and treatment.

Decompensated cirrhosis is characterized by decreased arterial blood paracrntesis 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.

The most widely used is “shifting clullness”. These patients need to be given sodium and water parenterally to replace their losses.

Enoxaparin prevents portal vein thrombosis and liver decompensation in patients with advanced cirrhosis. Two different dosages of cefotaxime in the, treatment of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhosis. 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.

It is a serious complication of ascites as it carries a high mortality, a high frequency of recurrence after resolution, and a poor longterm prognosis. 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.

Semin Liver Dis, 28pp. Local diseases in the peritoneal cavity such as TB, malignant disease,and pancreatitis, damage capillaries and produce protein-rich ascites exudates.

Aminoglycosides were used previously but are now avoided owing to their renal toxicity. In these circumstances, ultrasonography is a good noninvasive means of confirming ascites.

They found that bulging and dullness in the flanks and shifting dullness were most sensitive but of limited specifity, that a fluid thrill was specific but of limited sensitivity, and that the puddle sign in their hands was of very limited value. Hepatology, 37pp. Features indicating general susceptibility to infection include poor reticuloendothelial activity, reduced complement activy and impaired leucocyte function. 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.

The mechanismofascicfiuid protein concentration during diuresis in patients with chronic liver disease. 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 Comparison of ascitic fibrinectin, cholesterol and serum-ascites albumin difference. This complication is often asymptomatic, but sometimes generates renal failure and hyponatremia.


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.

Initial treatment should be with diuretic drugs and sodium restriction abovebut his is often unsuccessful and many patients become uraemic as the dose of drugs is increased of or better effect. Moreover, patients with cirrhosis and ascites are frequentely complicated by acute episode of bacterial infection. These patients should be regarded as having SBP and although asymptornatic patients may clear the ascitic infection spontaneously, it is probably safer to treat complicacinoes with antibiotics.

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. Vincenzo La MuraFrancesco Salerno. Patients who develop SBP tend to have advanced cirrhosis with obvious ascites, but this is not always the case.

However, these patients usually have very poor liverfunction and the possibility of fiver transplantation should be considered. Oral, Nonabsorbable antibiotics prevent infection in cirrhotics with gastrointestinal haemorrhage. To the occurrence of bacterial peritonitis in patients with cirrhosis and ascites without any local source such as an organ perforation or abscess.

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.

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. Thus, caution should be adopted in patients who has reached these alterations.
