The presence of one determinant can modify the effect of another, whereby the presence of both infected peri pancreatic necrosis and persistent organ failure has a greater impact upon severity than either determinant alone.


Correlation of Balthazar grade with Degree of necrosis: This maybe explained because it is a third level concentration center in which most of the AP patients are looked after in clssificacion level centers, therefore our results cannot be extrapolated to the population in general; it would be important to perform this analysis on these kind of attention centers.
