Overview

Surgery is the mainstay of treatment for refractory ascites. Refractory ascites is defined as ascites that can not be mobilized or the early recurrence of which can not be satisfactorily prevented by medical therapy. Large volume paracentesis is the choice treatment for patients with tense ascites. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) would be indicated when there is frequent (> 3 times per month) need for large volume paracentesis to manage ascites. Liver transplantation is indicated for refractory ascites treatment in patients that can not be underwent TIPS.
