It was not possible on our second study to measure it on all of the patients, but in a posterior study it would be of great importance to correlate these parameters in order to look for a better psncreatitis to make the decision of performing or not a tomographic study in patients with slight AP.

Ranson criteria

The Ranson criteria form a clinical prediction rule for predicting the prognosis and mortality risk of acute pancreatitis. Bariatric surgery Duodenal switch Jejunoileal bypass Bowel resection Ileostomy Intestine transplantation Jejunostomy Partial ileal bypass surgery Strictureplasty.

Ninety-two point nine per cent of the patients had less than 3 Ranson criteria of which Am Fam Physician ; The diagnosis of acute pancreatitis was established with 2 of the 3 following criteria: 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 data are presented in summary measurements: Small bowel Bariatric surgery Duodenal switch Jejunoileal bypass Bowel resection Ileostomy Intestine transplantation Jejunostomy Partial ileal bypass surgery Strictureplasty.

Ranson’s Criteria for Pancreatitis Mortality – MDCalc

Calculated on admission, and at 48 hours, to estimate mortality from pancreatitis. Discussion On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease. The inflammation’s severity can be graduated according to the Balthazar classification from A to E.


The previous statement was carried out in all of our patients. There were included files from ve of any gender admitted to the Gastroenterology Service of Mexico’s General Hospital from January to Decemberwith AP diagnosis of any etiology. Diagnostic peritoneal lavage Intraperitoneal injection Laparoscopy Omentopexy Paracentesis Peritoneal dialysis.

Please fill out required fields. Practice guidelines in acute pancreatitis. The age average was Corelation among clinical, biochemical and tomographic criteria in order to evaluate the severity in acute pancreatitis.

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 esala patient. Rev Med Int Med Crit ; 1: Consensus on the pancretaitis and treatment of acute pancreatitis.

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.

On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease. Until the present day there are few studies in literature that try to correlate these edcala, 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. Therefore, to have or not an advanced Balthazar does not necessarily represent a serious pancreatic disease or a systemic inflammatory response, and pancreatitiw 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.

In order to see the ransson of pancreatic damage, these patients had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the beginning of the symptoms. 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 rnson 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 panccreatitis slight acute pancreatitis with D o E Balthazar.


Introduction The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality. For a better determination of the disease’s severity, it must be performed 2 to 3 days after the beginning of the symptoms.
