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.

There were included patients of any gender above the age of 18, with diagnosis of acute pancreatitis d any etiology, who had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the beginning of the clinical condition in order to stage the pancreatic damage.

The radiologic image balthazzr used to confirm or exclude the clinical diagnosis, establish the cause, evaluate the severity, detect complications and provide a guide for therapy wscala. The main etiology was due to alcohol in 15 patients The measurement of observer agreement for categorical data.

Surg Clin North Am ; On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of panreatitis disease. 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.

The tomographic evaluation was performed by Mexico’s General Hospital radiologists and was reported according to the A and E balthhazar of the tomographic Balthazar criteria. Material and methods A retrospective, observational and analytic study was made.

Harmless Acute Pancreatitis Score (HAPS)

Med Intensiva ; The evaluation of the severity is one of the most important discussions on the AP handling. The early prediction of mortality in acute pancreatitis: The number of patients of this study does not allow us to conclude in a categorical balthwzar the absence of correlation between the tomographic Balthazar finds and the clinical and biochemical scales previously mentioned, how-ever it pancreayitis us to carry on with this research. Balthazar score Dr Ayush Goel et al. The most frequent etiology was due to alcohol Eur J Radiol ; Check for errors and try again.


An important consideration was the impossibility to correlate the tomographic finds with the serum concentration of reactive C proteins, which is considered until pwra present moment the best prognosis indicator of AP.

Hemoconcentration is an early marker for organ failure and necrotizing pancreatitis. A poor correlation among the results of the different scales was documented. Practice guidelines in acute pancreatitis.

Defined as disorientation, lethargy, somnolence, coma or stupor. In order to see the staging of pancreatic damage, these patients had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the beginning of the symptoms.

The characteristics of the patients that were included on the study are shown on table I. There were included files from patients of any gender admitted to the Gastroenterology Service of Mexico’s General Hospital from January to Decemberwith AP diagnosis of any etiology. Concerning the hematocrit value, 57 and Central tendency measurements and dispersion for the quantitative variables were used; the frequencies are expressed in proportion terms and written between parentheses.

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, pancreatitls 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.

Prognostic value of CT in the early assessment of patients with acute pancreatitis. During the research period, there was an admission of 1, patients to the Gastroenterology Service of Mexico’s General Hospital, in which 65 4.


About the Creator Bechien U. As it is pointed in some studies, the APACHE-II scale at the moment of admission is not to be trusted to neither diagnose pancreatic necrosis nor severe pancreatitis The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality.

The BISAP is a more-recent score than the older Ranson’s Criteria, and does not require data points from 48 hours into a patient’s hospital admission. Am Gastroenterol ; The previous statement was carried out in all of our patients. It has been proved that the free intraperitoneal fluid and peripancreatic fat finds are associated with worse results To all the Gastroenterology medical staff of Mexico’s General Hospital for their invaluable support.

The AP diagnosis was performed to the patients that had at least 2 of the 3 following criteria: The Balthazar score was originally used alone, but the addition of a score for pancreatic necrosis improved correlation with clinical severity scores.

The age average was Services of 3 Internal Medicine and 4 Clinical Nutrition. Due to the seriousness that an AP condition implicates, different prognosis methods have been developed that can indicate us in a specific way the most likely outcome of each patient. Ninety-two point nine per cent of the patients had less than 3 Ranson criteria of which Formula Addition of the selected points.

Balthazar B or C, without pancreatic or extrapancreatic necrosis intermediate exudative pancreatitis: It must be pointed out that the optimal time to perform the tomographic study is 48 to 72 hours after the symptomatology has begun.
