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 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 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.


Ranson was the co-author of Acute Pancreatitis. The previous statement was carried out in all of our patients.

The SPSS version If the CT is performed before this escal, the results may be lower Balthazar degrees. Central tendency measurements and dispersion for the quantitative variables were used; the frequencies are expressed in proportion terms and written between parentheses. Retrieved from ” https: On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease.

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 tomography, 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. Ranson’s Criteria was developed in the s to address pancreatitis mortality; however, it may over-estimate mortality given its study and development years ago.


There were included patients of any gender above the age of 18, with diagnosis of acute pancreatitis of any etiology, who had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours after the beginning of the clinical condition in order to stage the pancreatic damage. Until this moment, there are needed higher prospective and multi-centric studies that correlate the tomographic with the clinical and biochemical scales.

In order to make the correlation, the Pearson or the Spearman tests were used according to the distribution of the variables.

During the daily clinical practice we often watch that the different severity scales have certain discrepancies.
