The examination of peritoneal fluid is a laboratory test. It's done to check for fluid accumulated around the internal organs in the belly. The peritoneal space is the name for this area. Ascites is the medical term for this ailment.
Various disorders and diseases can cause peritoneal inflammation (peritonitis) and fluid formation (peritoneal effusion or ascites). Peritoneal fluid analysis is a collection of tests that evaluate this fluid to determine its source. Paracentesis, or abdominal tap, is used to obtain the liquid.
When a healthcare provider suspects a person has a condition or disease that causes peritonitis and ascites, a peritoneal fluid investigation may be ordered. It can be requested if someone has:
• Unknown cause of ascites
• Abdominal pain, bloating, and tenderness
• The intestinal wall has a hole or a break in it (intestinal perforation)
• Cancer of the abdominal lining is suspected.
A sample of peritoneal fluid obtained by inserting a needle into the abdominal cavity is shown.
Before the sample collection, you will be requested to empty your bladder.
• Doctor prescription
• A valid government ID
