The intraabdominal pressure in decompensated cirrhosis: relationship with ascites volume and turn-over.

Abstract

The values of the intraabdominal pressure (IAP) were determined in 23 subjects with decompensated cirrhosis, both in basal conditions and after diuretic treatment (furosemide 75 mg/day orally for one week). In order to investigate the role of IAP in the regulation of ascites turn-over, ascites volume and free-water peritoneal clearance (FWPC) were estimated… (More)
