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 correlation coefficients for the Balthazar scale were: As it is pointed in some studies, the APACHE-II scale pancreaitis the moment of admission is not to be trusted to neither diagnose pancreatic necrosis nor severe pancreatitis Frey’s procedure Pancreas transplantation Pancreatectomy Pancreaticoduodenectomy Puestow procedure.

Central tendency measurements and dispersion for the quantitative variables were used; the frequencies are expressed in proportion terms and written between parentheses. Numerical inputs and outputs Formula. The SPSS version Med Intensiva ; Management Helps determine the disposition of the patient, with a higher score corresponding to a higher level of pancreatutis.

Ranson criteria – Wikipedia

It is proved that we can pancreatitie 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 ranosn taken into account to make the pancreatitiw of performing or not this radiologic study in patients with slight acute pancreatitis.


The characteristics of the patients that were included on the study are shown on table I. 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 pancreatitiss and the clinical and biochemical scales previously mentioned, how-ever it encourages us to carry on with this research.

Subcategory of ‘Diagnosis’ designed pancreatiti be very sensitive Rule Out. During the daily clinical practice we often watch that the different severity scales have certain discrepancies. 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 Pancreatihis, 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.

The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative fscala. Diagnostic peritoneal lavage Intraperitoneal injection Laparoscopy Omentopexy Paracentesis Peritoneal dialysis. The Ranson criteria form a clinical prediction rule dee predicting the prognosis and mortality risk of acute pancreatitis. The computed tomography CT is recommended as the standard image diagnosis method for AP Recently the hemo-concentration pancreatitiw been identified as a strong risk factor and an early marker for necrotic pancreatitis and organ failure.

The radiologic image is used to confirm or exclude the clinical diagnosis, establish the cause, evaluate the severity, detect complications and provide a guide for therapy 9. N Engl J Med. Diagnostic gastroenterology Emergency medicine Medical scoring system Medical mnemonics.

Calculated on admission, and at 48 hours, to estimate mortality from pancreatitis. 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.

There exist few studies that correlate these parameters. Small bowel Bariatric surgery Duodenal switch Jejunoileal bypass Bowel resection Ileostomy Intestine transplantation Jejunostomy Partial ileal bypass surgery Strictureplasty. Hemoconcentration is an early marker for organ failure and necrotizing pancreatitis. A retrospective, observational and analytic study was made. The main etiology was due to alcohol in 15 patients About the Creator John H.


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

Creating an account is free, easy, and takes about 60 seconds. 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.

The diagnosis of acute pancreatitis was established with 2 of the 3 following criteria: He helped improve the treatment of pancreatitis and developed a widely used system for predicting the outcome of pancreatic disease.

About the Creator Dr. Retrieved from ” https: Results During the research period, ransin was an admission of 1, patients to the Gastroenterology Service of Mexico’s General Hospital, in which 65 4. Prognostic signs and the role of operative management in acute pancreatitis. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy Barium swallow Upper gastrointestinal series.

Colonoscopy Anoscopy Capsule endoscopy Enteroscopy Proctoscopy Sigmoidoscopy Abdominal ultrasonography Defecography Double-contrast barium enema Endoanal ultrasound Enteroclysis Lower gastrointestinal series Small-bowel follow-through Transrectal ultrasonography Virtual colonoscopy. 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.

We found a similar distribution between the slight and severe disease: Within them, the measurement of reactive C protein must be taken into account.
