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.

Initial treatment with cefotaxime 1g 6-hourly intravenously is recommended. Rarely, measurement of the portal venous pressure may reveal otherwise occult hepatic cirrhosis by revealing portal hypertension.

Peritonitis – Síntomas y causas – Mayo Clinic

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 The thiazides are laracentesis of intermediate potency which are little used in ascites due to hepatic cirrhosis. Thoracentesis gives immediate relief from dyspnoca but usually only has a transient effect with repeated treatments eeded up to weekly.

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 Side-effects are uncommon, but thiazide can produce hepatic encephalopathy perhaps due to hypokalaernia alkalosis and an increased blood ammonia.

Two different dosages of cefotaxime in the, treatment of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhosis. Digestive Diseases and Sciences Once the transport capacity of the lymphatics is exceeded fluid accumulates in the peritoneal cavity and eventually ascites becomes evident.

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.

JAMA,pp. Mainly, we wished to explore which of the predicting variables could be used to prefer large-volume paracentesis or TIPS.

Paracentesis, however, needs to be done carefully and with aseptic precautions as it carries potentially serious complications including bacterial peritonitis and haemoperitoneum. 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 In addition some patients, although affected by a severe liver disease do not rich the threshold to be admitted.


This procedure causes a fall of portal pressure with reduction of the vascular collateral circulation. The median survival of patients suffering from refractory ascites is approximately 6 months. This allows paracentwsis stable hemodynamic result of the TIPS. Diuresis starts within an hour within minutes of an intravenous dose and lasts for about six hours after an oral dose. J Hepatol, 54pp. The treatment of hepatic hydrothorax is difficult and often unsuccessful.

Paracentesis Abdominal

Complicaxiones these circumstances, ultrasonography is a good noninvasive means of confirming ascites. It is, however, important to be realistic and recognise the limitations and practicality of these clinical signs.

Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis in cirrhosis: Recurrence of SBP after recovery is common and occurs in about two thirds of patients within a year and in three quarters within two years Tao et al; Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso.

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 Paracentexis 85, A meta-analyses conducted on four out of five RCTs showed that resolution of refractory ascites was significantly greater in patients treated with TIPS but the survival was only marginally better for TIPS patients. Relatively large doses may be needed to produce an adequate diuresis in ascites due to cirrhosis due to the effects of hyperalclosteronism and possibly reduced renal sensitivity to the drugs.

Further investigation may be required to determine the cause of the ascites. This is characterised by infection in a pleural effusion which cannot be attributed to any local complicacoines Xiol et al Hepatology, 38pp. Oral, Nonabsorbable antibiotics prevent infection in cirrhotics with gastrointestinal haemorrhage. The rationale for using this device is to reduce the volume of ascites with a simultaneous re-expansion of the plasma volume.

Antibiotic prophylaxis is important to prevent recurrence and liver transpiantation shoulcl be considered. The supra-additive natriuretic effect additional of quinethazone or bendrofflumethiazide during long-term treatment with furosemide and spironolactone.


They are not wiclely used.

One of the first treatments of refractory ascites was peritoneo-venous shunt or LeVeen shunt. In most patients with cirrhosis and ascites a low sodium diet complicaicones with diuretic medications obtains the disappearance of ascites.

Treatment of intractable ascites in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis by peritoneo-venous shunting LeVeen. Transjugular paracentesi portosystemic shunt for refractory ascites: Requirements for the diagnosis of refractory ascites are: Cytology of ascites is important as malignant cells can be identified reliably in ascites sediment by this technique.

Excessive pxracentesis can cause hypovolaemia and renal failure, and accordingly daily fluid losses shoulcl be limited to ml. In these cases the administration of diuretic drugs is insufficient to increase urinary sodium excretion diuretic-resistant ascites or, more often, the diuretic therapy cannot be tolerated because of serious side-effects, such as encephalopathy, hyponatremia, renal failure diuretic intractable ascites.

The mechanismofascicfiuid protein concentration during diuresis in patients with chronic liver disease. Measurement of the daily urine sodium output is useful in patients who do not respond to dietary salt restriction and diuretics as the finding of a good sodium excretion implies the intake of excess salt. Side-affects are usually due to fluid and electrolyte imbalances, but gastrointestinal symptoms, skin rashes, parasthesiae, blood dyscrasias and hepatic and renal dysfunction occasionally occur.

It usually develops insidiously without causing haemodynamic instability, and is most often due to a hepatocellular carcinoma.

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

Pathophysiology of portal hypertension. Patients may present with a combination of a systemic illness with fever and leucocytosis, often associated with hepatic encephalopathy, and abdominal features of pain, peritonism and absent bowel sounds or with either independently.

Vincenzo La MuraFrancesco Salerno. The hepatic paracenteeis 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
