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

This case is a typical example of infected pancreatic necrosis. Chin J Dig Dis ; 6: Correlation of Balthazar grade with Degree of necrosis: Until the present day there are few studies in literature that try to correlate these differences, this is why we have focused on claisficacion performance of a study in our hospital, trying to observe how cpasificacion is the discrepancy between the severity degree and the tomographic finds according to the Balthazar classification.

Edema in the peripancreatic fat yellow arrowconsistent with interstitial pancreatitis.

The combined score of CTSI proved to have a better prognostic accuracy than the Balthazar score but it, too, had some drawbacks. A pseudocyst requires 4 or more weeks to develop.

Balthazat of Acute Pancreatitis The diagnosis of acute pancreatitis requires two of the following three features: The CT shows an acute necrotizing pancreatitis.


On the day of admission, scoring systems based on imaging do not outperform scoring systems based on clinical and biochemical parameters with regard to predicting clinical outcome. Communication with the pancreatic duct may be present. The CT shows a similar collection clasiflcacion fluid density to that of the patient with the pseudocyst, except for lcasificacion pancreatic location.

Support Radiopaedia and see fewer ads. Route can be used to guide minimally invasive surgery. Acute oedematous or interstitial pancreatitis. The current management of acute pancreatitis is to be conservative for as long as possible.

Continue with the next image. Clinical follow-up of the patients was done in terms of the following parameters:. The images show a normally enhancing pancreas on day 1. To all the Gastroenterology medical staff of Mexico’s General Hospital for their invaluable support.

Balthazar grading in patients with acute pancreatitis: Most severe local complication of acute necrotizing pancreatitis.

Cytokine cascades result in a systemic inflammatory response syndrome SIRSwhich increases the risk of organ failure. The CT severity index CTSI combines the Balthazar grade points with the extent of pancreatic necrosis points on a point severity scale.

In order to make the correlation, the Pearson or the Spearman tests were used according to pancreattiis distribution of the variables. Drain runs parallel to pancreatic bed. The Modified CTSI was calculated by summing these values and the total score was then categorized as:. Normal enhancement of the entire pancreas.

Reproducibility in the assessment of acute pancreatitis with computed tomography

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. It can be balthaazar 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 pancreatigis with an A or B Balthazar and on the other hand patients with slight acute pancreatitis with D o E Balthazar.

It is characterized by a protracted clinical course, a high incidence of local complications, and a high mortality rate. There were included patients of any gender above the age of 18, with diagnosis of acute pancreatitis of any etiology, who had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the beginning of the clinical condition in order to stage the pancreatic damage.
