Rev Esp Enferm Dig ; Hydrothorax has not recurred within six months of discharge. Igarzabal 1T. This drug has few and minor side effects 15, Although it is a safe, little-invasive and efficient procedure, it has two major inconveniences: We report the case of a defnicion that developed hepatic hydrothorax as the first complication of liver cirrhosis.

Apart from reducing hepatic venous pressure gradient, it improves renal function It is defined as pleural hidrotkrax greater than ml in patients with liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension without cardiopulmonary disease.

Our patient had progressive improvement, allowing chest tube removal after five days of treatment Fig.

The only definitive treatment is liver transplantation 19,20and it must be always considered in these patients. Pleural effusion is usually a transudate. Contrary to the two previous case reports 15,20our patient had failed to all available treatment options, including pleurodesis and TIPS.

There are some reported cases of successful treatment with pleurodesis. We considered this option for our patient due to the absence of response to previous treatments and with the objective of pleurodesis and detection of diaphragmatic defects, as well as to perform a close examination of the thoracic cavity, taking biopsy samples sefinicion definitely exclude malignancy.

This procedure has many complications such as excessive protein, fluid and electrolyte depletion.

Video-assited thoracoscopic surgery with talc pleurodesis in the management of symptomatic hepatic hydrothorax. Cardiopulmonary disease, as well as infectious disease, tuberculosis and hidroforax or lung cancer were excluded as the cause of the pleural effusion. In the reported cases, the effect was dose dependent since higher doses led to greater reduction of drainage volume.


We decided to continue treatment for several days by subcutaneous administration before discharge.

Definición de Hidrotórax – Meaning

Hepatic hydrothorax in the absence of ascites. Its pathophysiology is unclear and it involves movement of ascitic fluid from the peritoneal cavity to the pleural space through micro- or macroscopic diaphragmatic defects TIPS dysfunction was ruled out by doppler ultrasound. Currently, the most accepted mechanism, involves the passage of ascitic fluid from the peritoneal cavity into the pleural space through diaphragmatic defects The successful treatment of symptomatic refractory hepatic hydrothorax with transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt.

According to literature, TIPS is the most effective treatment for refractory hepatic hydrothorax and it is considered one of the indications for this technique 9,15, Hepatic hydrothorax pathogenesis, diagnosis and management.

Doppler ultrasound revealed signs of chronic liver disease without morphologic nor hemodynamic signs of portal hypertension, mild ascites and right pleural effusion. Talc is administered during thoracoscopy, performed to repair diaphragmatic defects if detected.

A year-old woman, with a past medical history of cigarette smoking and active alcohol consumption of 70 grams per day. Treatment with octreotide was justified as it has the same effect as TIPS in reducing portosystemic pressure gradient.

Ann Intern Med ; J Clin Gastroenterol ; hidrotoraz We administered the same doses as those reported in the literature: This response was transient as drainage hidrootorax subsequently increased despite normal function of the prosthesis, as assesses by doppler ultrasound. The patient had a good response hidritorax treatment with progressive decrease in chest tube drainage, allowing chest tube removal without recurrence of pleural effusion. Patients with severe dysnea often require chest tube placement, which is also used to treat iatrogenic or spontaneous infection of pleural effusion.


Gastroenterol Clin Biol ; After pleurodesis failure, and with hemodynamic evidence of mild portal hypertension hepatic venous pressure gradient: She was diagnosed with hepatic hydrothorax with a liver biopsy that revealed early micromacronodular cirrhosis, with moderate activity and focal steatosis.

Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt for recurrent hepatic hydrothorax. Successful treatment of hepatic hydrothorax with octreotide. Based on this favorable response to octreotide, we think that splanchnic vasoconstrictors should be considered in the treatment of serious complications such as refractory hepatic hydrothorax and hidortorax.

Findings allowed the exclusion of tumoral and infectious diseases and the presence of signs of portal hypertension led to the diagnosis of cirrhosis as the uidrotorax of hydrothorax. Viral, metabolic and autoimmune test were negative for the aetiology of liver disease.

No recurrence of hydrothorax or ascites has occurred within six months of discharge with a 25 mg dose of aldactone daily. To prevent adverse outcomes hiddrotorax TIPS placement, patients should be carefully selected, avoiding those with hepatic encephalopathy or with Child C cirrhosis Servicio de Medicina de Aparato Digestivo. Chest tube removal is often impossible due to high volume drainage. Initial treatment is similar to that of hydropic decompensation and it consists of fluid and sodium restriction and diuretics.

Transyugular intrahepatic portal systemic shunt for the management of symptomatic cirrhotic hydrothorax. Arch Intern Med ; The procedure was unsuccessful maintaining high chest tube drainage that did not allow chest tube removal.
