A comparative study of image-guided percutaneous procedures for the treatment of liver abscesses

Laparoscopic drainage of liver abscess. Besides these prevailing symptoms, patients may abscesxo complain of malaise, nausea, vomiting, anorexia and weight loss. The close vicinity of the diaphragm to the superior surface of the hepatic lesion may lead to inflammatory reactions of the diaphragm itself, subphrenic space, pleura, lungs and pericardium [32]. Bombay Hospital Journal ; It can then establish abcsesso extra-intestinal infection throughout the portal veins radicles, most commonly in the liver [10].

There is the risk of sepsis, needing prompt diagnosis and therapy with antibiotics. In contrast with the last four decades, when patients with hepatic amebiasis were systematically submitted to surgical drainage by laparotomy, medical therapy nowadays is the treatment of choice, indicating surgical drainage only for extremely large lesions in which ruptures are believed to be imminent [45,46]. This abscess may rupture into a bronchus and provoke vomica, a sudden and profuse expectoration of putrid purulent matter [35,36].

Unfortunately this test is not yet available commercially. The clinical manifestations of hepatic amebiasis are so typical that they might suggest the diagnosis in the areas where it is prevalent, such as in Amazonia. In the CT scan, an amebic abscess usually appears as a rounded, well-defined, low-density lesion, with an homogeneous septated cavity, and with considerable fluid Figure 7.


It is important to remember that in accordance with the pharmacokinetics of imidazoles, these drugs have a short stay in the bowel amebiank, which is not sufficient for an effective action against the amoebas [53]. Services on Demand Journal. A comparative study of image-guided percutaneous procedures for the treatment of liver abscesses.

Diagnosis After the old days of splenoportography and less sensitive tests, the non-invasive imaging procedures, including ultrasonography, computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and, principally serology, have dramatically improved the clinician’s ability to promptly diagnosis hepatic amebiasis and quickly amebiao treatment.

Chloroquine, an antimalarial drug is also effective against the trophozoite of Entamoeba histolytica. An intensive pain localized over the lower rib cage on the right side, a dry cough, shortness of breath, and severe dyspnea in a patient with hepatic amebiasis, are suggestive symptoms of an initial pulmonary complication, that heeptico urgent chest radiographic or CT scan studies [33].

Avlonitis VS, Linos D. Drainage of abdominal abscesses guided by sonography. Nevertheless, considering the very high mortality of the syndromes of rupture, with serious pulmonary implications, pericarditis, or more frequently, subphrenic abscess or even peritonitis with sepsis, surgical treatment can be absolutely necessary, and should be supplemented by antibiotics and other therapy [64,65]. Services on Demand Journal.

Prevalence of Entamoeba histolytica infection. Complications In spite of the availability of effective drugs, complications may be found with regularity during the course of hepatic amebiasis. Individuals in the fourth and fifth decades of life are most commonly afflicted.

In spite of the great number of asymptomatic patients infected by Entamoeba dispar or even by some strains of Entamoeba histolytica that remain in the luminal surface of the bowel, amebiasis in its invasive form, is responsible for enteric syndromes, ranging from amebkano dysentery to fulminant colitis, amebiabo is highly lethal. Semin Roentgenol ; Satiani B, Davidson ED. Sometimes, as a consequence of a downward extension, the hepatic lesion may leak into the peritoneal cavity as a localized abscess of the left anterior or posterior subphrenic spaces, or in the form of a free perforation, causing generalized peritonitis with consequent polymicrobial infection, and a syndrome of acute abdominal pain Figure Under these circumstances Staphylococcus aureus is the principal invader [20].

The method used was considered successful when there was complete abscess resolution with both clinical and amebiaano improvement. Thoracic complications of amebic liver abscess: Pregnant patients with amebic lesion for whom metronidazole is contraindicated. Secnidazole has the same pharmacodynamics as metronidazole, but it has different pharmacokinetics, with a much-extended half-life, maintaining high concentrations in tissues for more than 24 hours.

Patients gradually respond to metronidazole therapy alone within a few days to a week, with disappearance of fever, right upper-quadrant pain, anorexia and other usual complaints. Since most of the blood supply from the large gut drains into the right lobe of the liver through the portal system, translocated organisms, such aerobic and anaerobic Enterobacteriaceae, may reach the abdcesso sinusoids, being phagocytized most of the time.
