Therefore, to have or not an advanced Balthazar does not necessarily represent a serious pancreatic disease or a systemic inflammatory response, and on the other hand to have a slight disease by means of clinical and biochemical criteria does not mean a lower degree on the tomographic Balthazar classification.

Transverse mesocolon Small bowel mesentery. It must be pointed out that the optimal time to perform the tomographic study is 48 to 72 hours after the symptomatology has begun. A Pseudocyst is a collection of pancreatic juice or fluid enclosed by a complete wall of fibrous tissue It occurs in interstitial pancreatitis and the absence of necrotic tissue is imperative for its diagnosis.


Balthazar E Case 4: Definitive treatment may require distal pancreatectomy or long-term endoscopic drainage.

Am J Gastroenterol ; Most common cause of death in patients with acute pancreatitis. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys.

Until this moment, there are needed higher prospective and multi-centric studies that correlate the pancreatiits with the clinical and biochemical scales. In table IIwe can observe the characteristics of the patients according to the severity markers.

The optimal interventional strategy for baalthazar with suspected or confirmed infected necrotizing pancreatitis is initial image-guided percutaneous retroperitoneal catheter drainage or endoscopic transluminal drainage, followed, if necessary, by endoscopic or surgical necrosectomy. FNA and Drainage Once the clinical pncreatitis of the patient deteriorates and the patient is febrile, fine needle aspiration FNA can be used to differentiate between sterile and infected collections.

The inflammation’s severity can be graduated according to the Balthazar classification from A to E. Most of them have no fluid collections and no necrosis.

No contamination with intestinal flora. Effects of total parenteral nutrition on rat enteric nervous system, intestinal morphlogy, and motility. CT can not reliably differentiate between collections that consist of fluid only and those that contain solid necrotic debris.
