Surgical technique for placement of the automated low flow ascites pump (Alfapump)

Abstract : Approximately 10% of patients with ascites associated with cirrhosis fail to respond to dietary rules and diuretic treatment and therefore present with refractory ascites. In order to avoid iterative large-volume paracentesis in patients with contraindication to TIPS, the automated low flow ascites pump system (Alfapump) was developed to pump ascites from the peritoneal cavity into the urinary bladder, where it is eliminated spontaneously by normal micturition. This manuscript reports the surgical technique for placement of the Alfapump.
