The prognostic value of three predictive indices was compared in 436 attacks of acute pancreatitis in 418 patients. The outcome of an attack was graded as uncomplicated (324), complicated (70), or fatal (41); 1 attack was excluded because of puncture of the caecum. The overall mortality rate was 9.4%. Clinical assessment on admission identified only 34% of patients whose attack was severe (ie, complicated or fatal). Multiple laboratory criteria and peritoneal lavage were more sensitive (61% and… Expand
Assessment of severity in acute pancreatitis: Use of prognostic factors.
TLDR
Ranson's prognostic factors help in identifying severe pancreatitis but their accuracy may be improved by the use of modern imaging techniques. Expand
Prediction of severity of acute pancreatitis: an alternative approach.
TLDR
Admission laboratory data of 203 patients suffering from acute pancreatitis were analysed to search for a simpler method of prediction of severity than the traditional multifactor prognostic scoring system and the predictive ability was comparable with the Glasgow multifactor scoring system. Expand
A new clinical prognostic staging system for acute pancreatitis.
TLDR
The clinical and comorbid features of patients with acute pancreatitis can be used to construct a clinically "sensible" composite staging system that is more readily applicable to all patients, particularly when the requisite special laboratory tests had not been ordered. Expand
Prediction of the severity of acute pancreatitis.
TLDR
The simple prognostic criteria for acute pancreatitis were validated; these criteria have the potential to stratify risk rapidly at the time of admission for patients who might benefit from an aggressive interventional protocol. Expand
Outcome in Acute Pancreatitis â An Evaluation of Prognostic Efficacy ofClinical Staging versus CT Severity Index
TLDR
CTSI is the best scoring system in predicting mortality in patients with acute pancreatitis and has maximum specificity and overall accuracy in predicting whether patients will be cured or relapsed. Expand
Prediction of Mortality in Acute Pancreatitis: A Systematic Review of the Published Evidence
TLDR
Despite the proliferation of scoring systems for grading AP, none are ideal for the prediction of mortality, and with the exception of the APACHE II, the other scores and indexes do not have a high degree of sensitivity, specificity and predictive values. Expand
Early prediction in acute pancreatitis: the contribution of amylase and lipase levels in peritoneal fluid.
TLDR
Peritoneal dialysis is less predictive and more cumbersome than a computed tomography scan in the early prediction of acute pancreatitis. Expand
Can We Predict Disease Severity in Acute Pancreatitis?
TLDR
Patients with a high risk of developing severe pancreatitis could be carefully monitored from the outset and CT scanned to assess the extent of pancreatic necrosis with the possibility of surgical intervention, since the procedures are time consuming, expensive and not without risk. Expand
Role of simplified admission criteria for predicting severe complications of gall stone pancreatitis.
TLDR
Glucose level is the best single admission predictor of severe complications of Gallstone Pancreatitis and is superior to an APACHE II score of 5 or greater, a modified Imrie score of 3 or great, and a biliary Ranson score of3 or greater. Expand
Comparison of Ranson, APACHE II and APACHE III Scoring Systems in Acute Pancreatitis
TLDR
Ranson criteria proved to be as powerful a prognostic model as the more complicated APACHE II and III scoring systems, but with the disadvantage of a 24-hour delay. Expand

Early prediction of severity of acute pancreatitis using peritoneal lavage.
TLDR
Diagnostic peritoneal lavage was attempted in 96 out of a consecutive series of 168 attacks of acute pancreatitis, and resulted in relief of pain in many patients, and in one complication, and it is felt that diagnostic lavage especially suited to select patients who may be expected to benefit from therapeutic peritoneAL lavage.

The role of peritoneal lavage in the prediction and treatment of severe acute pancreatitis.
TLDR
Patients with predicted 'severe' disease were randomised to receive peritoneal lavage for 72 h or no lavage, but no statistically significant benefit has yet been shown from this treatment. Expand

The Timing of Biliary Surgery in Acute Pancreatitis
TLDR
It is suggested that although early correction of associated biliary disease may be undertaken safely in many patients with “mild” acute pancreatitis, early definitive surgery is hazardous in “severe” pancreatitis and should, if possible, be deferred until pancreatitis has subsided. Expand
Biliary surgery in the same admission for gallstone‐associated acute pancreatitis

A revised prognostic factor grading system has been outlined in which the age factor is removed and serum transaminase levels are considered of prognostic significance only if greater than 200 u/l within 48 h of admission. Expand
Early assessment of severity of acute pancreatitis using peritoneal lavage.
TLDR
Lavage successfully predicted severe disease in five patients whose condtion had been clinically assessed as mild, and the concentrations of albumin, aspartate aminotransferase (SGOT) and total protein in the return fluid provided good discrimination between severe and mild attacks. Expand
Acute pancreatitis: clinical vs. CT findings.
TLDR
On follow-up CT, the findings of acute pancreatitis did not always disappear with resolution of the clinical symptoms, especially true of phlegmonous pancreatitis, where the CT findings could persist for months. Expand
