Hepatorenal syndrome, septic shock and renal failure as mortality predictors in patients with spontaneous bacterial peritonites. Background and aims: Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis SBP is a common complication of cirrhosis. Identification of poor prognosis predictors is essential in disease approach. Methods: Medical records from patients admitted at our institution between January and December with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis were retrospectively reviewed.

Síndrome hepatorrenal: Revisión de la literatura

Hepatorenal syndrome often abbreviated HRS is a life-threatening medical condition that consists of rapid deterioration in kidney function in individuals with cirrhosis or fulminant liver failure. HRS is usually fatal unless a liver transplant is performed, although various treatments, such as dialysis , can prevent advancement of the condition. HRS can affect individuals with cirrhosis, severe alcoholic hepatitis , or liver failure, and usually occurs when liver function deteriorates rapidly because of a sudden insult such as an infection, bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract , or overuse of diuretic medications. Deteriorating liver function is believed to cause changes in the circulation that supplies the intestines , altering blood flow and blood vessel tone in the kidneys. The kidney failure of HRS is a consequence of these changes in blood flow, rather than direct damage to the kidney.
