Internal Medicine | Surgical Procedures, Operative
Paracentesis is a safe standard procedure to relieve abdominal ascites. Hemorrhagic complications following paracentesis include abdominal wall hematoma, hemoperitoneum, and pseudoaneurysm. Hemorrhagic shock following a paracentesis is a life threating complication that requires close monitoring and prompt treatment. Herein, we present a rare case report of a 67-year old male with a decompensated liver disease that developed a hemorrhagic shock due to the development of hemoperitoenum following a paracentesis.
