Keywords: pancreatic necrosis, differential diagnosis, clinical and laboratory indicators.


Summary. Introduction. The search for objective methods for diagnosing the form and severity of acute pancreatitis, accurate prediction and timely prevention of infectious complications in this surgical pathology is of great practical importance for modern medicine.

Materials and methods. According to clinical, morphological and bacteriological data, groups of patients were selected. The first group included 33 patients with sterile pancreatic necrosis (SP), the second group consisted of 29 patients with infected pancreatic necrosis (IP).

Results and discussion. The program of differential diagnosis of sterile and infected pancreatic necrosis with calculation of the index of differential diagnosis (IDD) for each clinical-laboratory and instrumental indicator used in this system is developed. The development and evaluation of diagnostic possibilities of the method of verification of purulent-septic complications of acute pancreatitis and the transition of a sterile form of pancreatic necrosis to an infected one was carried out.

Conclusions. The use of the developed method of diagnosis of sterile and infected pancreatic necrosis with the calculation of the index of differential diagnosis allowed in 93% of cases to distinguish sterile pancreatic necrosis from infected and timely determine the scope and tactics of treatment.
