Acute pancreatitis (AP) has a very variable course. Accurate early prediction of severity is useful to direct clinical care and to stratify patients for trials. Current assessment toots are inaccurate and unable to adapt to new parameters. None of the current systems uses C-reactive protein (CRP). These problems can be overcome using modern machine learning tools. This system for the first time combines scoring of systemic disturbance and admission CRP value for the prediction of severe AP. The score is simple to use, and more accurate than admission APACHE-II.

    Background The optimal route of nutrition in severe pancreatitis is controversial. Parenteral nutrition (PN) is preferred, but enteral nutrition (EN) promises to attenuate inflammation and prevent sepsis. We hypothesized that EN was at least equivalent to PN in reducing inflammation, providing...

    BACKGROUND: After 50 yr in which nasoenteric feeding was considered contraindicated in acute pancreatitis (AP), several clinical studies have shown that early nasojejunal (NJ) feeding can be achieved in most patients. A pilot study of early nasogastric (NG) feeding in patients with objectively...
