Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunting versus paracentesis plus albumin for refractory ascites in cirrhosis. The major challenge LT programmes face is the shortage of donors and consequently optimization in the allocation of the few organs available becomes extremely necessary.

Diagnosis and management of acute kidney injury in patients with cirrhosis: The deleterious effect on circulatory dysfunction produced by SBP can be prevented by volume expansion with albumin. Dopamine and Furosemide for the Treatment of Hepatorenal Syndrome: Clinical,pathological and experimental studies.
The vasopressin analogue ornipressin was found in a number of studies to be useful in improvement of kidney function in patients with hepatorenal syndrome,    but has been limited in its use, as it can cause severe ischemia to major organs.
The 2 main theories are the arterial vasodilation theory and the hepatorenal reflex theory. Improvement of hepatorenal syndrome with extracorporeal albumin dialysis MARS: Definition and diagnostic criteria of refractory ascites and hepatorenal syndrome in cirrhosis. Int J Artif Organs.

Hepatorenal Syndrome: Background, Pathophysiology, Etiology
Albumin for bacterial infections other than spontaneous bacterial sindroms in cirrhosis.
The evolving concept of acute kidney injury in patients with cirrhosis. Treatment of hepatorenal syndrome. As the disease progresses and splanchnic vasodilation gets worse other vasoconstrictor systems get activated such as the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and vasopressin release[ 1 ]. Some patients may require hemodialysis to support kidney function, or a newer technique called liver dialysis which uses a dialysis circuit with albumin -bound membranes to bind and remove toxins normally cleared hepatorenak the liver, providing a means of extracorporeal liver support until hepatorsnal can be performed.
Emerging indications for albumin dialysis. The renin angiotensin system in cirrhosis. Preliminary experience with high-volume hemofiltration in human septic shock. Type 1 HRS is characterized by rapid and progressive renal impairment and is most commonly precipitated by spontaneous bacterial peritonitis SBP. As a result, the role of renal replacement therapy in patients with HRS remains unclear.
Activation of the RAAS and SNS occurs early with antidiuretic hormone secretion, a later event when a more marked derangement in circulatory function is present.

They should be very cautious when new medications are prescribed by physicians not familiar with their care and must avoid known nephrotoxic agents such as nonsteroidals and aminoglycosides.
