Renal impairment after Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis (SBP) in cirrhotic population.
Objectives: To evaluate the frequency of renal impairment after spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) in cirrhotic population. Study Design: The study was conducted as Descriptive Cross-Sectional. Setting: Liaquat National Hospital Karachi. Period: For six months (October 01, 2015 to March 31, 2016). Methodology: The subjects with liver cirrhosis spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) were evaluated for serum creatinine and serum blood urea nitrogen (BUN) for evaluation of renal impairment while the patient’s information was recorded on proforma and analyzed in SPSS-15.0. Results: The mean ±SD of age, BUN and serum creatinine for whole population was 50.69±10.69 years, 22.4197±11.64742 and 1.2207±0.92535. Renal impairment was detected in 40 (27.2%) individuals while it is normal in 107 (72.8%) subjects. Conclusion: The renal impairment after SBP in cirrhotic population is higher in present study.
