Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: The clwsificacion and extent of necrosis in each case was classified into four categories and awarded points from as follows:.

Indications for intervention of evolving peripancreatic collections should be based on full evaluation of clinical, lab, and imaging No role for drainage in early collections Can be used as a guide for surgical approach. Mortele Modified CTSI Scoring Normal pancreas clasifivacion Point Intrinsic pancreatic abnormalities with or clasiicacion inflammatory changes in peripancreatic fat 2 Points Pancreatic or peripancreatic fluid collection or peripancreatic fat necrosis 4 point.

Am Gastroenterol ; The inflammation’s severity can be graduated according to the Balthazar classification from A to E. The strong relationship between the Modified CT severity index and the patient outcome in this study corroborates with the findings of Mortele et al. Unable to process the form.

Therefore, this collection was suspected to be infected WON and not a pseudocyst. Thank you for updating your details. A critical evaluation clasificcion laboratory tests in acute pancreatitis.

The claeificacion pancreatic abcess is no longer used, since a collection of pus without necrotic tissue is extremely uncommon in acute pancreatitis. Frequently they regress spontaneously. Atlanta Classification of Fluid Collections The Revised Atlanta Classification discerns 4 types of peripancreatic fluid collections in acute pancreatitis depending on the content, degree of encapsulation and time.

Necrosis can be diagnosed with MRI, which of course should only be performed if it has direct clinical implications. Most persistent fluid collections also contain some necrotic material.


Repeated follow-up study was not possible due to cost and radiation exposure.

clasificacoon Occurrence of clasiricacion failure- respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, hepatic and haematological system. Conclusion Modified CT severity index makes the score easier to calculate and reduces the inter-observer variation. This indicates that during surgery the differentiation between pancreatic necrosis and necrosis of the peripancreatic tissues is sometimes impossible. Balthazar E Case 2: Majority of the cases were categorized as mild pancreatitis according revised Atlanta classification.

Interstitial pancreatitis Morphologically there are 2 types of acute pancreatitis – interstitial or oedematous pancreatitis and necrotizing pancreatitis.

Communication with the pancreatic duct may be present. Late – after the first week Morphologic criteria based on CT findings combined with clinical parameters determine the care of the patient.

Pancreas – Acute Pancreatitis 2.0

The images show spontaneous regression of an acute peripancreatic fluid collection APFC. Temporallytwo phases of acute pancreatitis are identified in the Revised Atlanta Classification: Articles Cases Courses Quiz. In view of these limitations, a modified and simplified CT scoring system was hypothesized in by Mortele and colleagues so as to determine if the scores obtained with this could be used to predict the clinical outcome more accurately.

Pancreatitis is one of most complex and clinically clasificaion of all abdominal disorders [ 2 ]. CT of acute pancreatitis: The most frequent etiology was due to alcohol And also, similar findings concluded in a study by Irshad Ahmad Banday et al. For patients with proven or suspected infected necrotizing pancreatitis, invasive intervention should be preferably delayed until at least 4 weeks after initial presentation to allow collections to become ‘walled-off’.

Therefore, to have or not an advanced 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.


Classification of acute pancreatitis— Two or multiple, poorly defined fluid collections or presence of gas in or adjacent to the pancreas. Necrosis of the pancreas Inhomogeneous collection in the peripancreatic tissue No wall We can conclude that this is an acute necrotic collection – ANC. Mild – No organ failure and no local or systemic complications. CT can not reliably differentiate between collections that consist of fluid only and those that contain solid necrotic debris.

These collections also show homogeneous high signal intensity on a fat-suppressed T2-weighted MRI image, are fully encapsulated and contain clear fluid i. Axial CT image of abdomen reveals normal anatomy of Pancreas arrows. Find articles by Rajesh Gupta. It can be suggested that there does not exist a statistically meaningful correlation between the APACHE-II scale of seriousness and the advanced Clsaificacion degrees due to the report of a poor correlation between Pearson and Spearman’s, therefore it is likely to find very ill patients with an A or B Balthazar and on the other hand patients with slight acute pancreatitis with D halthazar E Balthazar.

A wall surrounds the collection. The necrosis also involves the peripancreatic tissue. ANC 2 Study the images and then baltgazar reading. The evaluation of the severity is one of the most important discussions on the AP handling. Transverse mesocolon Small bowel mesentery.
