Sažetak
Introduction: Incidence rate and the etiology of acute pancreatitis (AP) varies in different parts of Europe. A small number of published studies show discrepant results in incidence rate of AP, ranging from 20 to 30 new cases per 100 000 habitants annually. Objectives: The aim of this study was to present incidence rate of AP for North Adriatic Region in Croatia as well as to make epidemiological analysis concerning etiology, mean age, gender and severity of disease. Methods: During a ten years period (2000–2009.) we analyzed 922 patients admitted in our hospital with confirmed diagnosis of AP by history, clinical and laboratory findings and imaging methods. An epidemiological analysis is carried out on incidence, demographic data and etiology as well as severity of a disease based on a Ranson score. Results: Incidence rate varied from 24 to 35/100 000 annually. Mean age was 60 ± 15.77 years. There were 53.2% of men and 46.8 % women. Most frequent etiology of AP was biliary in 60.5% and alcohol abuse in 19.3% of patients. According to the Ranson score, pancreatitis was considered to be severe in 43% of the cases. Conclusion: In our region incidence rate of AP was around 30 per 100 000 habitants annually during last ten year period. The mean age at admission was 60 years and etiology was dominantly biliary. In our region, we have shown epidemiological characteristics of AP typical for Mediteranian countries.
