abstract

  • The development of nongynecologic malignant ascites is an end stage event for most patients. The placement of PVS for those patients with nongastrointestinal tumor etiologies, a BUN of < 17, a Cr of < or = 1.1, and a BUN to Cr ratio of < 19 yielded the best results. In the current study, palliation was difficult to assess accurately, although most patients were discharged or lost > 1kg of weight after shunting.
