Denver shunt

Consider the Denver shunt for your patients with refractory ascites

This peritoneovenous shunt is placed percutaneously to recirculate ascitic fluid from the peritoneal space to the circulatory system. It improves quality of life by relieving ascites symptoms and enabling the body to retain nutrients. It also helps maintain blood volume, renal blood flow and diuresis.
