ASCITES

WHAT IS ASCITES?

Ascites is the buildup of fluid in the space between the lining of the abdomen and abdominal organs (the peritoneal cavity).

The organs of the abdomen are contained in a sac or membrane called the peritoneum. Normally the peritoneal cavity contains no fluid, although in women a small amount (20ml, or less than an ounce) can occasionally be found depending on the menstrual cycle. Ascites is the term used to denote a fluid collection in the peritoneal cavity, a situation that is not normal.

WHАT ARE THE CAUSES OF ASCITES?

Ascites results from high pressure in the blood vessels of the liver (portal hypertension) and low levels of a protein called albumin.

Diseases that can cause severe liver damage can lead to ascites. These include long-term Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C infection and alcohol abuse over many years.

People with certain cancers in the abdomen may develop ascites. These include cancer of the colon, ovaries, uterus, pancreas, and liver.

  • Clots in the veins of the liver (portal vein thrombosis)
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Pancreatitis

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ASCITES?
