Brief Summary:
Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is a common complication of end-stage liver disease due to various causes. The initial anti-infective medication is appropriate and the patient's survival rate is closely related. Ascitic fluid bacterial culture takes a long time, the positive rate is low, it is difficult to guide the timely use of antimicrobial drugs, empirical medicine based on evidence-based medicine for SBP in patients with end-stage liver disease is essential. The American College of Hepatology and the European Society of Hepatology recommend the use of third-generation cephalosporins as the first choice of empirical therapy in patients with end-stage liver disease associated with community-acquired SBP. Patients with merger of hospital-acquired SBP with piperacillin / tazobactam or carbapenem +/- glycopeptide antibiotics is the first choice for empirical medication. There is no clear recommendation in China. In recent years, the conclusions of international clinical research in this area have been in disagreement with the recommendations. As a key factor in the selection of empirical antibiotics is local bacterial resistance data, these findings are difficult to evidence-based medicine for Chinese doctors. This project intends to observe the efficacy of different initial anti-infective regimens in Chinese patients with end-stage liver disease with SBP and 30-day and 60-day non-liver transplant survival rates, providing evidence-based medical evidence for the empirical use of such patients.
