Abstract

Acute pancreatitis is a common disease process that results in significant morbidity and mortality. While the disease course may be mild and self-limited, 15%-25% of patients develop necrotizing pancreatitis, which may become secondarily infected. The use of standardized scoring systems and clinical classification schemes has allowed multicenter trials to evaluate the management of necrotizing pancreatitis and have greatly improved outcomes. Supportive care with fluid resuscitation, nutrition, and appropriate use of antibiotics are the mainstays of early management. Once fluid collections have progressed to walled-off necrosis, catheter-based drainage is generally sufficient, with few patients requiring surgical intervention. Complications of necrotizing pancreatitis include mesenteric venous thrombosis, abdominal compartment syndrome, bowel perforation, and hemorrhage. Further understanding the appropriate timing of interventions may potentially lead to fewer complications, decreased length of hospitalization, and improved outcomes.
