Professionals from the Hospital Clínic-IDIBAPS and CIBEREHD participated in the preparation of the international guidelines produced by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) for the management of ascites, kidney infections and renal complications in patients with liver cirrhosis.  Ascites is one of the main complications of cirrhosis and consists of the abnormal accumulation of fluid in the abdomen.  Moreover, these patients often develop kidney infections and impaired renal function.
