Keywords Chronic pancreatitis; Pancreatic function tests; Pancreatic elastase; Staging; Steatorrhoea
Core Tip Patients with acute, recurrent acute and chronic pancreatitis were classified as per M-ANNHEIM stages, separately based on the results of two exocrine function tests (acid steatocrit method and faecal elastase test) for comparison. A statistically significant difference was seen between the M-ANNHEIM stages as classified separately by the two tests. Faecal elastase-1 estimation performed better than the acid steatocrit test for use in the staging of pancreatitis by the M-ANNHEIM classification since it diagnosed a higher proportion of patients with exocrine dysfunction.
