CT CT is the imaging modality of choice for the diagnosis and staging of acute pancreatitis and its complications. Thank you for updating your details. On day claificacion there is no enhancement of the pancreas, consistent with necrosis. Please review our privacy policy. A CECT was performed. Pancreatitis is one of most complex and clinically challenging of all abdominal disorders [ 2 ].

UK guidelines for the management balthazsr acute pancreatitis. 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.

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

Journal of Evolution of Medical and Dental Sciences. Many of these patients however will have necrotizing pancreatitis and the mortality increases when the necrosis becomes infected. However, in first balthaxar only clinical parameters are useful. At surgery, the collection contained much necrotic debris, which was not depicted on CT.

Interstitial pancreatitis Morphologically there are 2 types of acute pancreatitis – interstitial or oedematous pancreatitis and necrotizing pancreatitis. The inflammation’s severity can be graduated according to the Balthazar classification from A to E.

Central gland necrosis Central gland necrosis is a specific form of necrotizing pancreatitis, representing full thickness necrosis between the pancreatic head and tail and is nearly always associated with disruption of the pancreatic duct. 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.


Notice how the greater part of the pancreatic body and tail no longer enhances indicating necrotizing pancreatitis arrows. On day 17 there are gas bubbles in the necrotic collection consistent with infected pancreatic and peripancreatic necrosis. On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease. Fifty per cent of the patients had acute severe pancreatitis according to the Atlanta criteria.

Most common cause of death in patients with acute pancreatitis. Imaging and intervention in acute pancreatitis. The optimal interventional strategy for patients with suspected or confirmed infected necrotizing pancreatitis is initial image-guided percutaneous retroperitoneal catheter drainage or endoscopic transluminal drainage, followed, if necessary, by endoscopic or surgical necrosectomy.

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.

Continue with the next image. Necrosis of peripancreatic tissue can be vary difficult to diagnose, but is suspected when the collection is inhomogeneous, i. Aim To assess the prognostic correlation of patient outcome with currently accepted Balthazar and the Modified Mortele Computed Tomography severity indices in acute pancreatitis. Repeated follow-up study was not possible due to cost and radiation exposure. There is a homogeneous well-demarcated peripancreatic collection in the lesser sac, which abuts the stomach and the pancreas.

CT severity index in acute pancreatitis | Radiology Reference Article |

Indications for intervention in sterile necrotizing pancreatitis are: In order to see the staging of pancreatic damage, these patients had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the cclasificacion of the symptoms.


The Pancode system is a checklist for the description of acute pancreatitis and its complications. Infected necrosis Infected necrosis is: Not transgastric route for diagnosis only.

These cases illustrate that at times CT cannot reliably differentiate between collections that consist of fluid only and those that contain fluid and solid necrotic debris with or without infection. 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.

Many collections will remain balthazra or resorb spontaneously. Clinical follow-up of the patients was done in terms of the following parameters:.

Pancreas – Acute Pancreatitis 2.0

Modified computed tomography severity index in acute pancreatitis. Early onset of organ failure is the best predictor of mortality in acute pancreatitis. Findings in patients of acute pancreatitis: Clinical outcome Early severity stratification of acute pancreatitis is important to identify patients with the highest morbidity. Support Center Support Center. The s everity is classified into three categories based on clinical and morphologic findings:.

Route can be used to guide minimally invasive surgery. All these collections may remain sterile or become infected. Chin J Dig Dis ; 6: A modified CT severity index for evaluating acute pancreatitis: This patient had an acute necrotizing pancreatitis with onset 2 months earlier.

Walled-off-necrosis 3 Here we see a homogeneous pancreatic and peripancreatic collection, well demarcated with an clasififacion wall, on day 25 of an episode of acute necrotizing pancreatitis. Infection is rare during the first week.
