Ascites is the most prevalent consequence of chronic liver failure. A complex chain of pathophysiological processes including portal hypertension and increasing vascular dysfunction leads to the production of ascites in the cirrhotic patient. Ascites development is a hallmark of chronic liver failure's natural history, and it predicts a dismal prognosis with a 50% mortality rate within three years. Complications such as spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, hyponatremia, and increasing renal impairment are common in patients with ascites. The quality of life and survival rates improve when cirrhotic ascites and accompanying consequences are properly managed.Join Dr. Sahay live as he walks us through the rational Mx of ascitis.
