Abstract

Many studies have shown that 20% human albumin solution infusions improve circulatory function in patients with advanced liver disease, and this treatment is widely recommended and used by all hepatologists. However, it is more expensive than other crystalloids or colloids, and several countries suffer shortages of supply. This article examines whether other fluids might be considered for these patients.
