Causes in order of frequency include a gallstone impacted in the pancreatitix bile duct beyond the point where the pancreatic duct joins it; heavy alcohol use ; systemic disease ; trauma ; and, in minors, mumps.
According to Steinberg et al. The extent of morphologic changes like necrosis and fluid collections is not directly proportional to the severity of organ failure. Usually the necrosis involves both the pancreas and the peripancreatic tissues. Introduction Diseases of pancreas have a very variable presentation and imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis and management of pancreatic diseases.
Patient outcome in terms of organ failure and death is more accurately assessed by revised Atlanta classification in comparison with Balthazar and modified ct severity index.
Revised Atlanta Criteria for Acute Pancreatitis Severity
Most often, they occur in the lesser sac. The Revised Atlanta Classification discerns 4 types of peripancreatic fluid collections in acute pancreatitis depending on pancdeatitis content, degree of encapsulation and time. Edit article Share article View revision history. On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease. On day 18 there is expansion of the peripancreatic collections and an incomplete wall is present.

The number of patients of this study does not allow us to conclude in a categorical way the absence of correlation between the tomographic Balthazar pancrratitis and the clinical and biochemical scales previously mentioned, how-ever it encourages us to carry on with this research.
As the patient’s condition worsened, pancreahitis second CT was performed on day 3. The collection is homogeneous and well-demarcated with a thin wall abutting the stomach.

The British Journal of Surgery. To assess prognostic correlation and clinical outcome of acute pancreatitis on the basis of CT severity index.
There were no complications and the diagnosis of mild pancreatitis was made. Complications are associated with a high mortality, even with optimal management. Drain runs parallel to pancreatic bed.
Although these are common symptoms, frequently they are not all present; and epigastric pain may be the only symptom.

Here an example of interstitial pancreatitis.
The combined score of CTSI proved to have a better prognostic accuracy than the Balthazar score but it, too, had some drawbacks. The patient underwent surgery and the collection was found balthazag consist of necrotic debris, which was not appreciated on CT, hence this was a walled-off-necrosis and not a pseudocyst.
This maybe explained because it is a third level concentration center in which most of the AP patients are looked after in second level centers, therefore our results cannot be extrapolated to the population in general; it would be important to perform this analysis on these kind of attention centers. After drainage the collection barely diminished in size.
