Summary of "Long-term administration of human albumin improves survival in patients with cirrhosis and refractory ascites."

In patients with liver cirrhosis, the clinical benefit of the treatment with human albumin for ascites is debated, and no data are available regarding refractory ascites. In this study, in patients with cirrhosis and refractory ascites, we assessed the effect of long-term albumin administration on emergent hospitalization and mortality.
