THE POSSIBILITIES OF THE APPLICATION OF INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES IN THE CORRECTION OF DIURETIC – RESISTANT ASCITES IN PATIENTS WITH LIVER CIRRHOSIS
The results of the treatment of the patients with liver cirrhosis complicated with diuretic-resistant ascites, applying the Celsite® peritoneal port systems (12 patients) and peritoneovenous shunting with LeVeen valve (42 patients) are analyzed. The use of peritoneal ports allows performing a fractional and dosed reinfusion of the ascitic fluid, and this ultimately eliminates the appearance of serious complications as hemorrhagic syndrome associated with hemodilution and coagulopathy because of the massive inflow of the ascitic fluid into the venous bed.
Key words: liver cirrhosis, portal hypertension, peritoneal port system, diuretic-resistant ascites.
