A close association between endotoxemia and acute pancreatitis has been reported, and attempts have been made to predict the severity of pancreatitis by estimating the levels of endotoxin. The present study was designed to correlate endotoxemia with the severity and complications of acute pancreatitis as graded by contrast-enhanced computed tomography and Blamey's criteria. We examined 20 patients with acute pancreatitis, using Blamey's criteria to assess the severity of pancreatitis. The… CONTINUE READING
