Nevertheless it was related to longer stay and presence of mechanical ventilation. There was a problem providing the content you requested To summarize, overall results of this retrospective study were those expected and most often found in references. Hepatobiliary Pancreat Dis Int. High serum lipase in ventilated patients may related to ischemic phenomena in the pancreatic microcirculation and changes in the vascular tone of the body circulation, including cranial pressure, caused by alterations in blood gases and ventilation induced pressure alterations.

Gagore Analysis of table 3 shows that statistically significant differences were found only in the proportions of cases hiperamilssemia hyperthermia, of rise in transaminases and hyperbilirrubinemia.

Please Choose One of the Following Options. An observational CT study. Propofol-induced hyperamylasaemia in a general intensive care unit. Increased lipase and amilase levels in critically ill patients: retrospective study This rise may reflect pancreatic or extra-pancreatic production.

In this series we found this alteration of serum cahsas in a significant number of patients, with concomitant elevation of amylase in a smaller number of patients.

Elevated lipase was commonly found in critical patients, it related with longer length of stay but was not accompanied by increased clinical severity or mortality. According to Gray and Somogyi 1persistently raised levels are to be found also caysas patients with impaired renal function, though Gross, Parker, Maher, and Power 2 found no significant increase in 63 patients with renal or extrarenal azotemia.

According to the guidelines of the American College of Gastroenterology ACGdiagnosis of acute pancreatitis requires presence of at least two of the following characteristics: Of these patients, With regard to the type of nutrition administered Table 4patients submitted to artificial nutrition parenteral or enteral presented high serum lipase more often, with cauass statistical significance regarding parenteral nutrition, when both groups were compared.

Finally, in the discriminating analysis performed Table 5the independent variables were those positively associated to high serum lipase, that is to say, length of stay, fever, elevation in transaminases, parenteral nutrition and mechanical ventilation. In patients who had parenteral nutrition an elevation of the pancreatic enzymes was found. Frank B, Gottlieb K. Such data were corroborated by literature, which may be, for instance, related to elevation of serum triglycerides or appearance of billiary mud.

To summarize, elevation of pancreatic enzymes in critically ill patients is a challenge and studies that would explain the clinical significance are scarce. Is hyperlipasemia in critically ill patients of clinical importance? Buy This Article Subscribe.

In most cases this elevation did not reach diagnostic levels A hoperamilasemia of patients met the criteria for diagnosis of acute pancreatitis. You will be redirected to acponline. Acute pancreatitis in intensive care unit patients: Amylase normal, lipase elevated: Nevertheless we stress that the radiological study had been performed in a small percentage of patients and according hipetamilasemia not well explained criteria, limitations inherent to a retrospective study such as this one.

Using the literature to evaluate diagnostic tests: Considering these results it can be stated that these are the variables which more significantly differentiate patients who developed high serum lipase from those that did not. The authors therefore proposed to determine the frequency of asymptomatic high serum lipase in critically ill patients, involved risk factors and outcome. Serum amylase and lipase are widely used as markers of pancreatic inflammation; however their elevation is not always predictive of pancreatic disease.
