Rev Esp Enferm Dig ; During endoscopic debridement this collection contained fluid and necrotic tissue, which was removed from the area of the pancreas.

It has fluid density and a thin enhancing wall. Abdominal computed tomography, Complications, Pancreatic diseases. The Sperman coefficients of correlation were calculated in order to associate the different scales.

The morphological classification according to Revised Atlanta classification. Am J Gastroenterol ; Material and methods A retrospective, observational and analytic study was made.

Necrosis of the pancreas Inhomogeneous collection in the peripancreatic tissue No wall We can conclude that this is an acute necrotic collection – ANC. In view of these limitations, a modified and simplified CT scoring system was hypothesized in by Mortele and colleagues so as to determine if the scores obtained with this could be used to predict the clinical outcome more accurately.
