The peripheral arterial vasodilation theory is compatible with most of the known observations in patients during the various stages of cirrhosis. According to this theory, cirrhosis causes arterial vasodilation and a decline in blood pressure; hypotension stimulates renal NaCl retention. The cause of the primary arterial vasodilation in cirrhosis is not clear, but is known to occur early in the course of the disease before ascites formation. The opening of existing splanchnic arteriovenous shunts may account for some early arterial vasodilation.

It is prudent to ᮣ ᮣ ᮣ Inadequate diuresis despite maximal doses of loop diuretics. Exclude occult nephrotic syndrome. Exclude complicating drug use, such as NSAIDs. Exclude excessive dietary NaCl intake (24-hour Na excretion measurement). ᮣ General Considerations Patients are considered to be diuretic resistant when an inadequate reduction in ECF volume is observed despite near maximal doses of loop diuretics. ᮣ Clinical Findings A. Symptoms and Signs The major symptoms and signs of diuretic resistance are those that indicate ECF volume expansion, as described above.

However, under conditions of severe intravascular volume depletion or hypotension, ADH may be released even in the presence of serum hypoosmolality. Disease states characterized by a low cardiac output or systemic vasodilation result in “effective” intravascular volume depletion and may also stimulate ADH release. Importantly, ADH alone is not sufficient to cause hyponatremia. Only when the intake of water exceeds its excretory capacity can hyponatremia result. In some cases, massive water ingestion or a defective urinary concentrating mechanism can cause hyponatremia despite the complete absence of circulating ADH.
