German term or phrase: stark negativ bilanziert
Wegen massiven Aszites war der Patient stark negativ bilanziert worden.
Does this just mean that the patient's condition deteriorated sharply, or is it more specific?
Many thanks in advance for your assistance!

Explanation:
IMHO, this sentence means that patient was treated with a "negative water balance", i.e. fluid restriction and/or diuretics. However, some more context would be useful.
