BACKGROUND Despite a paucity of validation, the Ranson score is still the most popular method for gauging the severity of pancreatitis. HYPOTHESES The Ranson score more accurately predicts outcomes in patients with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) when compared with APACHE (Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation) III scores, and the individual components of the Ranson score differ in their capacities to predict outcome in patients with SAP. METHODS Patients admitted with SAP to a… CONTINUE READING
