Score taken after 7 days of hospital admission. Peripancreatic collections can be approached through the transhepatic red arrowtransgastric green arrow or transabdominal blue arrows route, but the preferred approach is to stay in the retroperitoneal compartment yellow arrows.

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

The modified CT severity index is an extension of the original CT severity index CTSI was developed by Balthazar and colleagues in for distinguishing mild, moderate and severe forms of acute pancreatitis.

After detailed history and physical examination, laboratory investigations were sent at the time of admission—arterial blood gas analysis, hematocrit, kidney function test, liver function test, serum electrolytes, serum amylase, serum lipase and complete hemogram.

There is a lack of comparative studies between these two radiologic scoring systems and the severity grading according to the RAC.

Necrosis of only extrapancreatic tissue without necrosis of pancreatic parenchyma less common. A P value of 0. The sensitivity and specificity for diagnosing pancreatic necrosis increase with greater degrees of pancreatic non-enhancement, and complications have also been shown to correlate with the panceeatitis of non-enhancement [ 8 ].

A Pseudocyst is a collection of pancreatic juice or fluid enclosed by a complete wall of fibrous tissue It occurs in interstitial pancreatitis and the absence of necrotic tissue is imperative for its diagnosis. Out of the 30 patients with NP, 29 patients had both pancreatic parenchymal and peripancreatic necrosis.

These patients may benefit from timely transfer to the intensive care unit or tertiary referral centre. Correlation of pancreatic necrosis and organ failure Click here to view.

The early prediction of mortality in acute pancreatitis: Infection is rare cfsi the first week. Therefore, performing CT on day of admission solely for prediction purposes is not recommended. Quantification Volumetric Cardiology MS: Expected spleen size Provides upper limit of normal for spleen length and volume by ultrasound relative to body height and gender.

Br J Surg ; Two radiologists with 14 years and 31 cfsi experiencewho were blinded to the patient outcome parameters, reviewed all imaging studies and recorded all pancreatic, peripancreatic findings, local, as well as extrapancreatic complications.

Value of CT in establishing prognosis. APACHE II is a useful prognostic scoring system for predicting the severity of acute pancreatitis and can be a crucial aid in determining the group of patients that have a high chance of need for tertiary care during the course of their illness and therefore need early resuscitation and prompt referral, especially in resource-limited developing countries. Predicting morbidity and mortality in acute pancreatitis in an Indian population: Clinical outcome parameters were noted in terms of duration of hospital stay, duration of ICU stay, occurrence of persistent organ failure, evidence of infection, need for intervention, and mortality.


On the basis of presence of local complication i.

The study population consists mostly of pancreatitis secondary to gall stone disease and therefore no meaningful comparisons can be made amongst the various scoring systems for different etiologies. Necrosis of peripancreatic tissue can be vary difficult to diagnose, but is suspected when the collection is inhomogeneous, i.

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. These patients had a mild clinical course. Prognostic signs and the role of operative management in Acute Pancreatitis. Clinical follow-up data for all patients were collected until discharge or demise. CT severity assessment using both CTSI and MCTSI showed significant correlation with outcome parameters including mean duration of hospital stay, presence of persistent OF, evidence of infection, need for intervention, and mortality [ Figure 2 ].
