Value of the extracellular water ratio for assessment of cirrhotic patients with and without ascites.

Abstract

AIMS Ascites, which often complicates liver cirrhosis, is reported to be a factor that worsens the outcome. The aims of this study were to quantify body water compartment changes in cirrhotic patients, with and without ascites, and to elucidate the value of body water analysis for predicting the development of ascites.
