    Results are reported of the effect of ascites reinfusion with concentration in seventeen patients. Complications were few and best results were obtained when the patient was also given frusemide during the reinfusion. The diuretic response to the reinfusion appeared to be determined by the pre-existing sensitivity of the circulation to intravenously administered angiotensin.
