Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis is defined as the presence of an infection in a previously sterile ascites in the absence of an intra-abdominal source of infection or malignancy . The v...
Ascitic fluid microbiome is going to be investigated in this study by using internal transcripted spacer (ITS) and 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and sequencing a...
Bacterial infections are a major cause of mortality in cirrhotic patients in the context of gastrointestinal bleeding or spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP). Rapid diagnosis of SBP is ...
Advanced liver disease and low ascitic fluid protein concentration have been identified as risk factors for spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhosis. Moreover, renal impairment and h...
Clinical trial with medical devices. A diagnostic trial conducted to find a better (less invasive) procedure for predicting the onset of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis(SBP), which is a ...
Primary peritonitis usually occurs in patients with comorbidities previously diagnosed with ascites. However, a primary peritoneal infection in previously healthy patients may also ensue. There has be...
Bacterial peritonitis, an infection of the ascitic fluid, can be classified etiologically as spontaneous or secondary bacterial peritonitis. The former is mainly caused by portal hypertension and its ...
The rise in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is predicted to cause 10 million deaths per year by 2050 unless steps are taken to prevent this looming crisis. Microbiological culture is the gold standard ...
Limited data are available for the diagnosis of patients with tumors with infected endoprosthetic reconstructions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether sonication is effective for the dia...
Amniotic fluid "sludge" has been associated with an increased rate of spontaneous preterm delivery before 35 weeks, a higher frequency of clinical chorioamnionitis, and histologic chorioamnionitis in ...
The serous fluid of ASCITES, the accumulation of fluids in the PERITONEAL CAVITY.
A transplantable, poorly differentiated malignant tumor which appeared originally as a spontaneous breast carcinoma in a mouse. It grows in both solid and ascitic forms.
An operation for the continuous emptying of ascitic fluid into the venous system. Fluid removal is based on intraperitoneal and intrathoracic superior vena cava pressure differentials and is performed via a pressure-sensitive one-way valve connected to a tube traversing the subcutaneous tissue of the chest wall to the neck where it enters the internal jugular vein and terminates in the superior vena cava. It is used in the treatment of intractable ascites.
A genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that require SERUM; ASCITIC FLUID; or BLOOD for growth. Its organisms inhabit the THROAT; and NASOPHARYNX of wild and laboratory rats and cause one form of RAT-BITE FEVER in man.
Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
