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.

Patients who are clinically well can be treated with broadspectrum quinolones such as ciprofloxacin.

Paracentesis Abdominal

Peripheral vasodilation prevents over heart failure. 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 Three general theories have been proposed to explain renal retention of sodium in hepatic cirrhosis Ring-Larsen complicaclones Henriksen, Pathophysiology of portal hypertension.

In addition, there is an increased portal blood flow which acts to maintain and aggravate portal hypertension Paracenresis et al Initial sodium restriction can be modest when diuretics are used simultaneously with intake reduced to about 80 mmol daily by avoiding intrinsically salty food and adding no salt in cooking or at table “no acIded salt diet. Comparison of ascitic fibrinectin, cholesterol and serum-ascites albumin difference.

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. Hepatocellular carcinoma and ruptured intra-abdominal varices can also cause acute bleeding leading to hypovolaernic shock.

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. Riesgos diferidos Se pueden desarrollar dos tipos de infecciones diferidas: Diuresis starts within an hour within minutes of an intravenous dose and lasts for about six hours after an oral dose.

As would expected, impaired free water clearance compliczciones associated with hyponatraemia and a poor prognosis Table 2. These shunts are used primarily for treating variceal haemorrhage, but intractable ascites has emerged as the second most frequent indication Stanley et al Thus, when a patient with ascites becomes unwell or develops hepatic encephalopathy for no obvious reason, SBP should be sought.


The puddle sign is little used, and the fluid thrill is an interesting observation in patients with ascites visible even to the casual observer. Further investigation may be required complicacionee determine the cause of the ascites.

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

Before paracenteiss 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 than cirrhosis Table 6 even in a patient with cirrhosis. 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.

Este procedimiento usualmente se completa en alrededor de dos horas. 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.

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 Recurrence of SBP re recovery is common and occurs in about two thirds of patients within a year and in three quarters within two years Tao et al; Bloody ascites can be due to trauma caused by liver biopsy, fine-needle piration, TIPPS insertion or, rarely, paracentesis.

Short-course versus long-course antibiotic treatment of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis: They can produce hyperkalaemia and should not be given with spironolactone or potassium supplements or when renal failure is present.

They produce a diuresis starting 6 hours and ending 24 hours after administration, and are usually used to potentiate loop diuretics and reduce urinary potassium loss. 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. The hepatic sinusoids become ‘capillarised’, by connective complicacionez progressively in hepatic cirrhosis and are less permeable which accounts for the generally low protein content of ascites in this condition.

Total paracentesis associated with intravenous albumin management of patients with cirrhosis and ascites. It is a poor prognostic sign.

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.


The most effective treatment is a third- generation cephalosporin such as cefotaxime paracentesls intravenously 8 hourly.

Important factors intreating ascites include removing precipitating factors, controlling sodium intake and sometimes water intakepromoting sodium excretion with diuretic drugs, removing ascites df 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.

Journal of the American Medical Association, 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. There may, therefore, be a case for paracentesis in patients with bleeding oesophageal varices and marked ascites, especially where other treatments are unsuccessful.

Usted debe inspeccionar su piel alrededor del puerto en forma complicacionse y llamar a su doctor si: Occasionally, infection reaches the ascitic fluid from recognised sources elsewhere in the body and unusual sources include dental infections and the fallopian tubes. Pleural effusion and hydrothorax can also occur below. Sodium depletion Rarely, patients become truly sodium and water depleted following large fluid losses by paracentesis, diuresis or enteric losses.

Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and the Department of Medicine. Potassium excretion is increased in response to increased sodium reabsorption in the distal tubules; calcium and magnesium excretion is also increased and paracentesjs alkalosis may occur. Hepatology Vol 17, No. 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.

Seminars in Liver Disease 6,Ascites can often be detected confidently from clinical examination, but in some cases the findings are equivocal usually because the amount of ascites is small or the patient is obese. The introduction of TIPSS has allowed the placement of portasystemic shunts by interventional radiological means applicable even in patients with poor liver function.
