The Effects of Clonidine on the Diuretic Response in Cirrhotic Patients
To examine the effects of the addition of clonidine to diuretics on the mobilization of ascites at short-term (diuretic response and requirement of diuretics) and long-term (readmissions for tense ascites and requirement of diuretics) in cirrhotics with increased sympathetic nervous system. Secondary objectives were to study neuro-hormonal,hemodynamic effects and side effects of clonidine and diuretics.
