Persistent organ failure during the first week as a marker of fatal outcome in acute pancreatitis. Let us hope that in a future we can point out our finds in a more concrete way.

During the daily clinical practice we often watch that the different severity scales have certain discrepancies. Pancreas, 22pp. It has been proved that the free intraperitoneal fluid and peripancreatic fat finds are associated with worse results Gut, 25pp.

Pancreas – Acute Pancreatitis 2.0

Pancreatitid Balthazar CTSI was calculated by adding the batazar points in each case and the total score was then categorized as:. Walled-off Necrosis – WON Based on CT alone it is sometimes impossible to determine whether a collection contains fluid only or a mixture of fluid and necrotic tissue. Avoid early drainage of collections and avoid introducing infection. Intrinsic pancreatic abnormalities associated with hazy streaky densities representing inflammatory changes in the peri-pancreatic fat.

CT Evaluation of Acute Pancreatitis and its Prognostic Correlation with CT Severity Index

Aim To assess prognostic correlation and clinical outcome of acute pancreatitis on the basis of CT severity index. Most collections that persist after 4 weeks are walled-of-necrosis. Multiple organ pancrestitis associated with severe acute pancreatitis.


The local determinant relates to whether there is peri pancreatic necrosis or not, and if present, whether it is sterile or infected. Gastroenterol Clin North Am, 36pp.

Revised Atlanta classification is more accurate than modified Mortele index and Balthazar severity index for assessing patient mortality and organ failure. Clin Res Hepatol Gastroenterol.

It is proved that we can have patients who are classified with slight disease by means of the Ranson, APACHE-II or hematocrit criteria, however while performing the computed tomography, we found advanced Balthazar degrees, which indicate us that these scales must not be the only parameter to be taken into account to make the decision of performing or pancreatitjs this radiologic study in patients with slight acute pancreatitis.


The number of patients of this study does not allow us to conclude in a categorical way the absence of correlation between the tomographic Balthazar finds and the clinical and biochemical scales previously mentioned, how-ever it encourages us to carry on with this research.

No contamination with intestinal flora.

This was fairly similar to the study conducted by Irshad Ahmad Banday et al. Low mortality and high morbidity in bqltazar acute pancreatitis without organ failure: Usually the necrosis involves both the pancreas and the peripancreatic tissues.
