Fluid Collections Management in Severe Acute Pancreatitis (FCMSAP)

The recruitment status of this study is unknown. The completion date has passed and the status has not been verified in more than two years.

Acute fluid collections is common in patients with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). But the treatment for this is controversial. In this study, the investigators aim to evaluate the different effects of three different treatment protocols which is repeated aspiration, continuous catheter drainage and conservative treatment. The investigators suppose repeated aspiration could not only solve acute fluid collections, but also lower the rate of pancreatic infection.

    intestinal fistula , major bleeding, etc.

  • ICU duration [ Time Frame: day one until discharge ]
  • hospital duration [ Time Frame: day one until discharge ]
  • SIRS [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
  • MODS [ Time Frame: 28 days ]

Estimated Enrollment: 87
Study Start Date: January 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Conservative treatment
Conservative treatment group with only drugs.
Drug: Conservative treatment
Including antibiotics,somatostatin, proton pump inhibitors and sufficient fluid resuscitation
Experimental: Continuous catheter drainage
Once the diameter of the fluid collection is more than 6cm, continuous catheter drainage will be applied.
Procedure: Catheter drainage
Experimental: Repeated aspiration
Once the diameter of the fluid collection is more than 6cm, aspiration is applied and draw the tube out immediately after aspiration.
Procedure: Aspiration
