Abstract:Introduction: Acute pancreatitis is the most common cause of patients presenting to the emergency department with pain abdomen. It is an inflammatory process of the pancreas that can range from mild inflammation to severe extensive pancreatic necrosis and multi-organ failure with mortality rates of 20% to 30%. Diagnosis can be difficult, because there is no pathognomic clinical presentation and no diagnostic gold standard.
Material and Methods: It was a prospective cross-sectional descriptive study conducted in the Department of Gastroenterology at Sapthagiri Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Center from December 2019 – August 2020 among 100 patients.
Results: The total patients studied in this study were 100, which comprises of 93 males and 7 females. Among the male population the maximum age group is 41-50. Next comes the 31-40 which includes 30 patients. Among the female population the maximum age group is 41-50 which includes about 4 patients. In our study distribution of the SAP within and above the cut off value of the different prognostic scores. 11 patients with SAP had RANSONs score < 3 and 10 with SAP had RANSON score ≥ 3. 11 patients with SAP had APACHE II score of ≥8 whereas 10 had APACHE II score < 8. But only 8 patients with SAP had BISAP score < 3 and 13 SAP patients had BISAP score ≥ 3. MCTSI score in 11 SAP was < 4 and 10 patients with MCTSI had ≥ 4.
Conclusion: BISAP score is simple and it is the better scoring system in predicting the prognosis when compared to other scores & MCTSI. BISAP score has many advantages when compared to other scoring systems.
