Ranson criteria

Therefore, to have or not an escalx Balthazar does not necessarily represent a serious pancreatic disease or a systemic inflammatory response, and on 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. There exist few studies that correlate these parameters.

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 essential dee 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.

About the Creator Dr. The objective of this study was to correlate the severity degree of the acute pancreatitis according to the Ranson, APACHE-II criteria, and the determination of the serous hematocrit at the moment of admission, with the local pancreatic complications according to the tomographic Balthazar criteria, in order to give a better prognosis value to the tomographic finds in relation with the AP severity. The radiologic image is used to confirm or exclude the clinical diagnosis, establish the cause, evaluate the severity, detect complications and provide a guide for therapy 9.

Ranson’s Criteria for Pancreatitis Mortality – MDCalc

The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality. 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.

The characteristics of the patients that were included on the study are shown ransson table I. 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 ranon the discrepancy between the severity degree and the tomographic finds according to the Balthazar classification.

Discussion On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease. In table IIwe can observe the characteristics of the patients according to the severity markers. 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 Ranson’s Criteria was developed in the escxla to address pancreatitis mortality; however, it may over-estimate mortality given its study and development years ago.

Early onset of organ failure is the best predictor of mortality in acute pancreatitis. We found a similar distribution between the slight and severe disease: 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 each patient.
