Designing future clinical trials in acute pancreatitis. During the daily clinical practice we often watch that the different severity scales have pancreaitis discrepancies. Acute peripancreatic collection Acute necrotic collection Pseudocyst Walled off necrosis 36 24 0 0. Length of hospital stay.

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

Once the clinical condition of the patient deteriorates and the patient is febrile, fine needle aspiration FNA can be used to differentiate between sterile and infected collections.

Interstitial oedematous pancreatitis and Necrotizing pancreatitis. The first CT underestimated the severity of the pancreatitis. Balthazar E Case 2: It takes about 4 weeks for a capsule to form. 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. In order to see the staging of pancreatic damage, these patients had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the beginning of the symptoms.

Usually the necrosis involves both the pancreas and the peripancreatic tissues. The CT-image shows a homogeneous peripancreatic collection in the transverse mesocolon arrow. Gastroenterol Clin North Am, 36pp. Assessment of the severity of acute pancreatitis: Focal or diffuse enlargement of the pancreas including contour irregularities, non- homogenous attenuation of the gland, dilation of the pancreatic duct and foci of small fluid collections within the gland, as long as there was no evidence of peri-pancreatic disease.


Infection of necrotic pancreatic parenchyma or extrapancreatic fatty tissue – i. The derivation of a classification based on the above principles results in four categories of severity: Central tendency measurements and dispersion for the quantitative variables were used; the frequencies are expressed in proportion terms and written between parentheses.

Results The new classification of severity is based on the actual local and systemic determinants of severity, rather than on the description of events that are non-causally associated with severity.

The Revised Atlanta Classification discerns 4 types of peripancreatic fluid collections in acute pancreatitis depending on the content, degree of encapsulation and time. Route can be used to guide minimally invasive surgery.

Gastroenterology, 89pp. Remarkably, a CT performed 6 months after surgery showed a normal pancreas. Morphologic severity of acute pancreatitis including pancreatic parenchymal necrosis can only be reliably assessed by imaging 72 hours after onset of symptoms. Atlanta Classification of Fluid Collections The Revised Atlanta Classification discerns 4 types of peripancreatic fluid collections in acute pancreatitis depending on the content, degree of encapsulation and time.

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.

They are seen within 4 weeks in necrotizing pancreatitis. Articles from Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research: Alguns autores, como Lecesne et al. AGA Institute technical review on acute pancreatitis. Practice and yield of early CT scan in acute pancreatitis: Balthazar score Dr Ayush Goel et al.

If the CT is performed before this period, the results may be lower Balthazar degrees. Backgrounds The Atlanta definitions of acute pancreatitis severity are ingrained in the lexicon of specialist in pancreatic diseases, but are suboptimal because these definitions are based on the empiric description of events not associated with severity. Approximately half of the deaths happen during the first week due to multi-organ systemic failure Infection cclasificacion rare during the first week.

Predicting the severity of acute pancreatitis: There are no fluid collections and there is no necrosis of the pancreatic paancreatitis. Fluid collections in and around the pancreas in acute pancreatitis. These collections develop early in the course of acute pancreatitis. Pancreatology, 8pp. They are seen within 4 weeks in interstitial pancreatitis.

The table summarizes the CT criteria for pancreatic and peripancreatic fluid collections in acute pancreatitis. Conclusions This classification is the result of a consultative process among specialists in pancreatic diseases from 49 countries spanning North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa.
