The principal investigators of the study request that you use the official version of the modified score here. It was not possible on our second study to measure it on all of the patients, but in a posterior study it would be of great importance to correlate these parameters in order to look for a better indicator to make the decision of performing or not a tomographic study in patients with slight AP.

During the daily clinical practice we often watch that the different severity scales pancreatitiw certain discrepancies. There were included files from patients of any gender admitted to the Gastroenterology Service of Mexico’s General Hospital from January to Decemberwith AP diagnosis of any etiology. The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality.

Discussion On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease. The computed tomography CT is recommended as the standard image diagnosis method for AP In terms of organ failure and development of pancreatic necrosis, the most severe acute pancreatitis happen at the E Balthazar degree 1,2.

Ninety-two point nine per cent of the patients had less than 3 Ranson criteria of which There exist few studies that correlate these parameters. It has been proved that the free intraperitoneal fluid and peripancreatic fat finds are associated with worse results During the research period, there was an admission of 1, patients to the Gastroenterology Service of Mexico’s General Hospital, in which 65 4.

For a better determination of the disease’s severity, it must be performed 2 to 3 days after the beginning of the symptoms.

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.

In order to see the staging of pancreatic damage, these patients had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the beginning esclaa the symptoms. Central tendency measurements and dispersion for the quantitative variables were used; the frequencies are expressed in proportion terms and written between parentheses. Subcategory of ‘Diagnosis’ designed to be very sensitive Rule Out. The danson statement was carried out in all of our patients.

To all the Gastroenterology medical staff of Mexico’s General Hospital for their invaluable support. Of this 65 patients, 28 fulfilled the criteria of inclusion, the rest of the patients were excluded because either they had slight pancreatitis, didn’t count with tomographic evaluation or were monitored on external consult.


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 finds and the clinical and biochemical scales previously mentioned, how-ever it encourages us to carry on with this research.
