Liver biopsy is no more used and even contraindicated because of coagulation disorder at this stage of the disease order chloromycetin 500mg visa 1950s medications. Findings suggesting cirrhosis (table 1) Small purchase chloromycetin 250 mg with visa 97140 treatment code, palpable liver,Palpable spleen ,Spider naevi on the upper trunk and face ,Palmar erythema,gynecomastia and atrophy of the testes, dilated abdominal surface veins,Ascites,jaundice. Imaging finding: ultrasonography showed liver dysmorphia (atrophic right lobe and hypertrophic left lobe), ascites, dilated of portal vein. If one of these parameters is abnormal, it is recommended to look for the complications. Decompensated cirrhosis Once a patient develops complications of cirrhosis, they are considered to have decompensated disease. The high morbidity and mortality of cirrhosis is secondary to these devastating complications. The quality of life and survival of patients with cirrhosis can be improved by the prevention and treatment of these complications. The first step leading to fluid retention and ultimately ascites in patients with cirrhosis is the development of portal hypertension. Those with ascites have several circulatory, vascular, functional, and biochemical abnormalities that contribute to the pathogenesis of fluid retention. We recommend the treatment of ascites as fellow: • Education about the importance of dietary sodium restriction is a central component of the management of cirrhotic ascites. Those who understand and follow the diet usually do not require readmission for fluid overload; in comparison, noncompliant patients often require multiple hospitalizations. We suggest 2000 mg to 3000 mg per day sodium diet (Grade 2C) (one teaspoonful of powder salt). In patients who require diuretic therapy, we suggest combination therapy with a single morning oral dose of spironolactone and furosemide, beginning with 100 mg and 40 mg, respectively (Grade 2B). In small patients with a small volume of ascites, we use lower doses (eg, 50 mg of spironolactone and 20 mg of furosemide). The maximum recommended doses are spironolactone 400 mg/day and furosemide 160 mg/day. Giving both drugs once per day in the morning maximizes compliance and minimizes nocturia. In some cases, we cannot use any spironolactone, especially when the glomerular filtration rate is very low or the patient develops hyperkalemia. Patients must be reevaluated rapidly with daily weights, urinary volume/24 h, abdominal perimeter in the hospital or at home. Once patients lose their sodium avidity (usually because of abstinence of healing of the reversible component of their liver disease), we begin tapering diuretics, reducing to a final dose of 50 mg of spironolactone plus 20 mg of furosemide before discontinuing altogether. We have to give albumin or other colloide when the volume extracted is over than 3 l (500 ml of colloide/2l of ascites or 14 g of albumin /2l of ascites evacuated). Some patients are asymptomatic and present with only mild laboratory abnormalities. The duration of treatment is 7 days and has to be continued by oral treatment to prevent reinfection (secondary prevention). Paracentesis has to be reperformed within 48 h of treatment to check the effectiveness of the empiric treatment. Variceal hemorrhage — Variceal hemorrhage is a devastating complication of cirrhosis. Before the widespread use of current therapies for acute variceal hemorrhage, the mortality rate of a single variceal hemorrhage was 30 percent, and only one-third of patients survived for one year. Although survival has improved with modern techniques for controlling variceal hemorrhage, mortality rates remain high. Hepatic encephalopathy — Hepatic encephalopathy describes the spectrum of potentially reversible neuropsychiatric abnormalities seen in patients with liver dysfunction. Disturbance in the diurnal sleep pattern (insomnia and hypersomnia) is a common early feature that typically precedes overt neurologic signs. More advanced 372 Chirrhosis And Its Complications neurologic features include the presence of asterixis, hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, and, less commonly, transient decerebrate posturing. Treatment is aiming at reducing elevations of ammonia: The dose of lactulose (45 to 90 g/day) (Duphalac®) should be titrated to achieve two to three soft stools per day with a pH below 6. Approximately 70 to 80 percent of patients with hepatic encephalopathy improve on lactulose treatment. Treatment is usually well tolerated, and the principal toxicity is abdominal cramping, diarrhea, and flatulence.
The treatment for hypovolemic shock is the same as that of other conditions order 500mg chloromycetin with visa medicine natural, such as trauma 250mg chloromycetin otc medications side effects prescription drugs. A complication of pregnancy usually indicates an incomplete abortion, such that a uterine dilation and curettage should be performed to stop the bleeding. Other conditions that should be considered include molar pregnancy, and ante- partum vaginal bleeding such as placenta previa or placental abruption. When the uterus is above the level of the umbilicus in a pregnant woman with vaginal bleed- ing, a speculum examination or digital examination should be avoided since these actions may exacerbate placenta previa. An ultrasound examination instead is help- ful in conditions of pregnancy-related vaginal hemorrhage. Upon exam- ining the woman, blood stains down the legs indicates significant bleeding, and the probable need for transfusion. The speculum examination should be performed to assess for degree of bleeding, lesions of the vagina or cervix, and ascertaining whether the bleeding is coming from within the uterus (supracervical) versus the cervix or vagina. A digital pelvic examination is performed to assess for cervical pathology, and also uterine size and shape. The bleeding is due largely to anovulation, that is, unopposed estrogen effect on the endometrium leading to overgrowth of the endometrium without progesterone to arrest the growth. In a woman older than age 35, or in a younger patient with persistent and prolonged unopposed estrogen, endometrium sampling should be performed to assess for endometrial hyperplasia or cancer. In most situations where there is less active bleeding, oral contraceptive agents can be used. Hormonal therapy should not be initiated until pregnancy and structural lesions of the uterus are ruled out. Endometrial sampling should be performed prior to initiation of hormonal treatment if possible. Notably, bleeding due to uterine fibroids will typically not respond to hormonal manipulation. In those women, inflation of a Foley balloon in the uterus has been described as a temporar- izing measure, and may be life-saving for those patients who cannot receive estrogen and also are not suitable surgical candidates. However, most of these patients will undergo uterine D and C, both for diagnostic purposes, and also to acutely arrest the hemorrhage. It is important to note that the underlying pathological process that induced the bleeding is not addressed with a D and C, and the patient may return to the emergency center in several months if the cause is not addressed. She states that she has had irregular menses for 3 years, and at times has “baseball-sized clots” pass vaginally. There are no abnormalities on pelvic examination including speculum examination of the cervix and vagina. Approximately 30 cc of dark blood is noted in the vaginal vault and a moderate ﬂow of blood from the cervix. Her hemoglobin level is 9 g/dL, glucose level 140 mg/dL and her pregnancy test is negative. In an adolescent who has signiﬁcant menorrhagia requiring transfusion, the incidence of coagulopathy approaches 20% to 30%. Coagulopathy should be ruled out prior to starting estrogen therapy, although sometimes this is impossible given laboratory constraints. Endometrial ablation is appropriate for older women who have ﬁnished child bearing, and in whom the endometrium has been assessed for pathology. She does not have contraindications, does not seem to require sampling of the endometrium, and there does not seem to be a structural etiology for the bleeding. Intravenous estrogen is usually reserved for women with signiﬁcant active bleeding and requires hospitalization. In general, the endometrium should be assessed for women above age 35 years before any hormonal therapy is initiated. Although the uterus is enlarged and irregular indicating possible uterine ﬁbroids, an evaluation should be performed prior to hysterectomy such as pelvic ultrasound and endometrial sampling. He has been unable to tolerate any swallowing and has urinated only twice since the onset of symptoms. He describes the lower anterior chest pain that is non-radiating and of moderately severe intensity. He does not appear short of breath but states that he has to control his breathing to avoid a “tight feeling in his throat”.
