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 not this radiologic study in patients with slight acute pancreatitis.

Within them, the measurement of reactive C protein must be taken into account. Please fill out required fields. In order to see the staging of pancreatic damage, these patients had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the beginning of the symptoms. Med Intensiva ; Concerning the hematocrit value, 57 and Of this 65 patients, 28 fulfilled the criteria of inclusion, the rest of the patients were excluded because either they had slight pancreatitis, didn’t count with tomographic evaluation or were monitored on external consult.

Ranson criteria

Management Helps determine the disposition of the patient, with a higher score corresponding to a higher level of care.

A poor correlation among the results of the different scales was documented.

Approximately half of the deaths happen during the first week due to multi-organ systemic failure Diagnostic peritoneal lavage Intraperitoneal injection Laparoscopy Omentopexy Paracentesis Peritoneal dialysis. Ranson’s Criteria for Pancreatitis Mortality Estimates mortality of patients with pancreatitis, based on initial and hour lab values. The characteristics of the patients that were included on the study are shown on table I.

Introduction The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality. The inflammation’s severity can be graduated according to the Balthazar classification from A to E.


It can be suggested that there does not exist a statistically meaningful correlation between the APACHE-II scale of seriousness and the advanced Balthazar degrees due to the report of a poor correlation between Pearson and Spearman’s, therefore it is likely to find very ill patients with an A or B Balthazar and on the other hand patients with slight acute pancreatitis with D o E Balthazar. Liver Artificial extracorporeal liver support Bioartificial liver devices Liver dialysis Hepatectomy Liver biopsy Liver transplantation Portal hypertension Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt [TIPS] Distal splenorenal shunt procedure.

Ranson’s Criteria for Pancreatitis Mortality – MDCalc

Am J Gastroenterol ; In relation to the Ranson criteria, The previous statement takes relevance due to the fact that our study points out that there is no correlation between the Balthazar degree and the hematocrit level, therefore it is essential to perform the CT in order to point out advanced degrees of Balthazar with necrosis, independently of the hematocrit level and the Ranson and APACHE-II scales. A retrospective, observational and analytic study was made.

Therefore, to have or not an advanced Balthazar does not necessarily represent a serious pancreatic disease or a systemic inflammatory response, and on the other hand to have a slight disease by means of clinical and biochemical criteria does not mean a lower degree on the tomographic Balthazar classification.

The BISAP Score requires esdala patient variables and is likely just as accurate — if not moreso — than Ranson’s criteria for predicting adverse outcome in patients pancreatitiw acute pancreatitis.

The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality.

Central tendency measurements and dispersion for the quantitative variables were used; the frequencies are expressed in proportion terms and written between parentheses.

Am Fam Physician ; Results During the research period, there was an admission of 1, patients to the Gastroenterology Service of Mexico’s General Hospital, in which 65 4.


Calculated on admission, and at 48 hours, to estimate mortality from pancreatitis. Pancreatic disease group, Chinese society of gastroenterology and Chinese medical association. Rev Esp Enferm Dig ; Let us hope that in a future we can point out our finds in a more concrete way. It must be pointed out that the optimal time to perform the tomographic study is 48 to 72 hours after the symptomatology has begun.

It has been proved that the free intraperitoneal fluid and peripancreatic fat finds are associated with worse results Chin J Dig Dis ; 6: According to the Balthazar tomographic degree and the AP severity of clinical and biochemical criteria, of the patients that were classified within slight disease, none was classified within the A Balthazar degree, An important consideration was the impossibility to correlate the tomographic finds with the serum concentration of reactive C proteins, which is considered until the present moment the best prognosis indicator of AP.

Fifty per cent of the patients had acute severe pancreatitis according to the Atlanta criteria. Helps determine the disposition of the patient, with a higher score corresponding to a higher level of care.

Revised Atlanta Criteria for Acute Pancreatitis Severity

Early onset of organ failure is the best predictor of mortality in acute pancreatitis. Until the present day there are few studies panxreatitis literature that try to correlate these differences, this is why we have focused on the performance of a study in our hospital, trying to observe how frequent is the discrepancy between the severity degree and the tomographic finds according to the Balthazar classification.

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy Barium swallow Upper gastrointestinal series. During the daily clinical practice we often watch that the different severity scales have certain discrepancies.

In terms of organ failure and development of pancreatic necrosis, the most severe acute df happen at the E Balthazar degree 1,2. Subcategory of ‘Diagnosis’ designed to be very sensitive Rule Out.
