Acute pancreatitis is an acute inflammatory process of the pancreas, which can remain localized at the level of the gland or can extend to the peripancreatic and retroperitoneal tissues. The use and interpretation of paraclinical examinations at the onset can predict the form of evolution of acute pancreatitis (mild or severe). Depending on the evolution, these data are useful in determining the type of surgical intervention that might be necessary based on severity.
We present a retrospective study consisting of 118 patients diagnosed and hospitalized with acute pancreatitis during 2016-2020 in the Surgery I section of the Sibiu County Emergency Clinical Hospital. Several parameters were taken into account at hospitalization such as age, sex, the environment of origin, etiology of pancreatitis, biochemical parameters with their repetition at 24, 72 hours, and at discharge, and clinical signs at hospitalization. surgeries performed depending on the severity of pancreatitis specifying their complications.
