Early severity stratification of acute pancreatitis is important to identify patients with the highest morbidity. Let us hope that in a future we can point out our finds in a more pancretitis way.

We found a similar distribution between the slight and severe disease: Imaging and intervention in acute pancreatitis.

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

Approximately half of the deaths happen during the first week due to multi-organ systemic failure Balthazar C Case 3: It has been proved that the free intraperitoneal fluid pancreatittis peripancreatic fat finds are associated with worse results A CECT was performed.

The Modified CTSI was calculated by summing these values and the total score was then categorized as:. Endoscopic or percutaneous drainage would have little or no pancrearitis on its size, but increases the risk of infection.

Correlation of Balthazar grade clasificackon Degree of necrosis: Scroll through the images. 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 indicator to make the decision of performing or not a tomographic study in patients with slight AP.


Necrosis of pancreatic parenchyma without surrounding necrosis of peripancreatic tissue very rare.

There is normal enhancement of the entire pancreatic gland with only mild surrounding fatty infiltration. The characteristics of the patients that were included on the study are shown on table I. True pseudocysts are uncommon, since most acute peripancreatic fluid collections resolve within 4 weeks.

Complete encapsulation in pseudocyst and WON. Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Until the present day there are few studies in literature that try to correlate these differences, 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.

The Balthazar CTSI was calculated by adding the above points in each case and the total score was then categorized as:. 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.

There are no fluid collections and there is no necrosis of the pancreatic parenchyma. Moderate severe and severe pancreatitis The clinical condition of the patient is determined by the host response to the pancreatitis.

Based on CT pancreafitis it is sometimes impossible to determine whether a collection contains fluid only or a mixture of fluid and necrotic tissue. Support Radiopaedia and see fewer ads.

Mortele Modified CTSI Scoring Normal pancreas 0 Point Intrinsic pancreatic abnormalities with or without inflammatory changes in peripancreatic ppancreatitis 2 Points Pancreatic or peripancreatic fluid collection or peripancreatic fat necrosis 4 point.

There is a homogeneous well-demarcated peripancreatic collection in the lesser sac, which abuts the stomach and the pancreas. Find articles by Rakesh Sharma.

No role for FNA in early collections. The images show spontaneous regression of an acute peripancreatic fluid collection APFC. Different treatments were given to patients which clasificacjon the patient outcome. These images are of a patient who presented with acute clasificaciln epigastric pain very suggestive of acute pancreatitis. Balthazar D or E, without pancreatic necrosis; peripancreatic collections are due to extrapancreatic necrosis severe pancreatitis necrotising: Morphologic severity of acute pancreatitis including pancreatic parenchymal necrosis can only be reliably assessed by imaging 72 hours after onset of symptoms.

Central tendency measurements and dispersion for the quantitative variables were used; the frequencies are expressed in proportion terms and written between parentheses. Late – after the first week Morphologic criteria based bqlthazar CT findings combined with clinical parameters determine the care of the patient.
