We do critical appraisal using Center of Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM) tool from Oxford University. Result In two trial, the result are high-dose diuretic has more efficacy than paracentesis and there was higher incidence of Hepatic Encephalophaty (HE) and Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis (SBP) in paracentesis group. In High-dose diuretic group also show better Child-Pugh Score result.
