Abstract

The pathogenesis of ascites formation, hepatic encephalopathy, and the hepatorenal syndrome are still uncertain. Recent studies have furthered our understanding of these processes. This paper reviews current understanding of these processes and discusses current developments that may have therapeutic implications in these areas. Recent studies regarding spontaneous bacterial peritonitis and the malnutrition of cirrhosis are also reviewed.
