Ascites is the abnormal accumulation of fluid in the abdomen, around the intestines and other abdominal organs, contains varying quantities of cells, bacteria, proteins and other substances.

What is it?

The vast majority of cases of ascites seen in patients with cirrhosis due to alcoholism and the Virus B and C. Heart failure, tumors affecting the peritoneum the lining inside the abdomen, liver metastases and peritoneal tuberculosis are major causes, but much less frequent. Rarely, ascites can occur by obstruction of hepatic blood flow or portal vein thrombosis or supra-hepatic, by excessive loss of protein in the urine/nephritic syndrome, in protein-energy malnutrition, hypothyroidism or by acute pancreatitis.

The increase in abdominal volume may be visible. Sometimes it is only perceived because the waist was tight clothing or the appearance of abdominal or inguinal hernias.

The development of ascites is usually slow and progressive over weeks to months, occurring without pain or other changes. Metastasis of cancer of an organ can cause abdominal pain continued, usually moderate. In heart failure can occurs discomfort and pain on the right side and upper abdomen.

Ascites high volume - can contain more than 10 liters - the abdomen becomes very prominent, hard and uncomfortable, causing heartburn and difficulty breathing. Symptoms of the disease-causing ascites ascites eventually appear in this more advanced.
