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
