Fetal Ascites Treatment
What happens if anyone have an experience with cirrhosis, ascites please give me some advice about treatment. Thank you.?
Stop drinking: The most effective treatment would be to stress the liver less, The liver has great regenerative potentials.
Treat Cause: Treatment of ascites is based on treating the underlying cause which is responsible for the accumulation of fluid. Other initial treatments are medical in nature and include sodium restriction and diuretic therapy. This can be effective in up to 95% of patients. For those who are refractory to medical treatment the ascitic fluid can be removed periodically via a process called paracentesis.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm suffering from cirrhosis, portal hypertension and ascites/ can you tell me more about treatment for this?
FEW OPTIONS: Your hepatologist (liver specialist) would be the best person to decide what would be the best treatment for you. Options include: b-blocker to decrease portal pressure, diuretics (lasix/aldactone) to control ascites and in certain cases tips (transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt). Best recommendation is to avoid anything that may further damage the liver.

Hi, fetal ascites dx at 14w, fetal anomaly scan at 15w NAD, TORCH /Amnio NAD, what is the likelihood of a happy/healthy baby please?
Unclear: There is not enough information for us to offer an opinion. Schedule a follow up visit with your Obgyn to go over the sonogram results. If you are unclear on the results and plan then ask for a referral to a perinatologist for a second opinion
Several: Several possibilities including Parvovirus infection. Risk if recurrence depends on the cause. Has to be evaluated by an obstetrician and genetics expert.
I'm 20 weeks 6 days pregnant my ultrasound result shows oligohydramnios fetal ascites is there anyway I can save my baby?
Diagnosis: Obviously both of those are negative signs at this gestational age. If not done already, asked to be referred to a perinatologist for a evaluation. TORCH blood testing, a fetal echocardiogram and possibly an amniocentesis should be done. Fetal DNA sequencing can be done from maternal blood in some cases.
Ultrasound result: single live intrautrerine pregnancy, presently cephalic, 20weeks and 5days gestation, oligohydramnios fetal ascites. What can I do
See perinatologist: Its frightening to have an ultrasound that gives news that isn't perfect. Oligohydramnios means that there isn't enough fluid around the baby. You can help make more fluid by drinking lots and lots of water and getting enough rest. You need to see a perinatologist to find out why. This is a doctor who concentrates on complicated pregnancies to find out why. Best Wishes!
I am 37 weeks pregnant and did a scan that says fetal abdominal Ascites and bilateral fetal scrotal hydrocele were noticed?
Here are some...: I would no jump into the conclusion by the one ultrasound image; it is reasonable to wait and see with repeating another ultrasound in 4-5 weeks for comparison as long as fetal growth and your healthy state in line with a normally expected pregnancy and since it is hard to do anything about it if any fetal congenital abnormality has formed. More? Ask your obs-gyn doctor for detail. Best wish...
Fuild backup: Ascitis is a condition of fluid in the soft tissues of the body. It can be caused by obstruction of lymph drainage from the periphery as well as heart failure. If there are symptoms of heart failure, medications can be helpful to improve pump function as well as increase urination. Discuss with his doctor about appropriate therapies.
Depends: I am assuming you have hep c cirrhosis with new ascites. Given a new due compensating symptom, treatment becomes more difficult. That does not mean it needs to stop, however best if you were managed at a tertiary care center.
After treatment of neck lymp node TB can TB pass to fetus? Can lymp node TB effect other organs during treatment?
Tuberculosis: Infants may acquire tuberculosis by transplacental spread through the umbilical vein to the fetal liver; aspiration or ingestion of infected amniotic fluid; or airborne inoculation from close contacts (family members or nursery personnel). Hope this does not occur. Stay well and recover uneventfully. Best wishes.
Is TB lymphadenitis contagious? Will it spread to fetus or will baby get TB in future? Is there a possibility of relapse after six months of treatment
Tuberculosis in preg: When pregnant with active tuberculosis, you should be treated for at least 9 months total, regardless of your treatment start date, & through pregnancy. Your baby is at risk for serious problems if you do not get treated, and could even die. It is very important to take your medication exactly as prescribed, and if it does not work, to switch to a second line medication. Take Vitamin B6 daily.
Early dx helps: There are no treatments for the congenital defects or brain damage due to fetal alcohol syndrome (fas), but early diagnosis and special education to address the child's specific needs can improve their developmental outcome. The earlier a child with FAS is placed in the appropriate educational class and given comprehensive social services, the more improved their prognosis.See 2 more doctor answers
