Approximately half of the deaths rwnson during the first week due to multi-organ systemic failure It is proved that we can have patients who are classified with slight disease by means of the Ranson, APACHE-II or hematocrit criteria, however while performing the computed pancreatiits, we found advanced Balthazar degrees, which indicate us that these scales must not be the only parameter to be taken into account to make the decision of performing or not this radiologic study in patients with slight acute pancreatitis.

The data are presented in summary measurements: The criteria for point assignment is that a certain breakpoint be met at any time during that 48 hour period, so that in some situations it can be calculated shortly after admission. If the CT is performed before this period, the results may be lower Balthazar degrees. Imaging and intervention in acute pancreatitis.

In mild pancreatitis, there is inflammation and edema of the pancreas. The most frequent etiology was due to alcohol The balance between these two mechanisms of cellular death is mediated by caspases which regulate apoptosis and have important anti-necrosis functions during pnacreatitis Liver Artificial extracorporeal liver support Bioartificial liver devices Liver clasificcaion Hepatectomy Liver biopsy Liver transplantation Portal hypertension Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt [TIPS] Distal splenorenal shunt procedure.

Mild cases are rwnson successfully treated with conservative measures: The previous statement takes relevance due to the fact that our study points out that there is no correlation between the Balthazar degree and the hematocrit level, therefore it is ganson to perform the CT in order to point out advanced degrees of Balthazar with necrosis, independently of the hematocrit level and the Ranson and APACHE-II scales.

The incidence of relapse after oral refeeding may be reduced by post-pyloric enteral rather than parenteral feeding prior to oral refeeding. Am Gastroenterol ; Hydromorphone or fentanyl intravenous may be used for pain relief in acute pancreatitis.
