doi:10.1111/j.1572-0241.2007.01485.x - MELD predicts SBP risk. JFW | T@lk 10:38, 22 August 2007 (UTC)


According to doi:10.3748/wjg.15.1042, Conn was the first to use the term SBP (PMID 14138877) but there had been previous reports. JFW | T@lk 10:18, 4 June 2009 (UTC)


This article is not talking about SPB, rather the contents is currently a general article about liver failure. SPB is a very important complication that is worried about when a patient presents with ascities and I think this article is definitely worth working on.Fuj (talk) 07:00, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

It was overwritten with some sort of other content. I got rid of it. JFW | T@lk 19:06, 27 April 2010 (UTC)


Madhero88 (talk · contribs) asked me to comment on the current state of the article. I felt some references were probably too weak from a WP:MEDRS perspective. The WJG reviews are fairly useful. I would still like to recommend PMID 19160207 (Cochrane Review for antibiotics). PMID 18417037 is a recent review that is potentially more authoritative, coming from Pere Gines.
