Therefore, we recommend adding two new definitions to the Atlanta classification, i. , sterile necrosis plus fluid and infected necrosis plus infected fluid. We also looked at the Atlanta classification to see if treatment was influenced by how our 113 patients were categorized. Those patients with sterile fluid collections and pseudo cysts were observed. Eight (40%) never required an operation. The eight patients with pancreatic abscess could have been managed by either percutaneous aspiration or operative intervention though the latter was used almost exclusively in this group of patients.

Bacterial contamination of pancreatic necrosis has been demonstrated in 40 % - 70 % of patients with severe AP with the use of CT-guided percutaneous aspiration (CT-FNA) and gram staining. Early surgical treatment is mandatory [8-10]. Severe inflammation in itself associated with tissue necrosis can produce or activate mediators that depressed the circulation and altered organ function. The syndrome of systemic inflammatory response (SIRS) is manifested clinically by temperature >38° or < 36°, heart rate> 90 beats per minute, respiratory rate >20 breaths per minute, PaCO, <32mmHg, white blood cell count >12000 cell/ml or > 10 % immature (band) forms.

Therefore, based on this precedent if other investigators can confirm our observation that there is a statistically significant difference in mortality between patients with necrosis and necrosis plus fluid and infected necrosis plus infected fluid adding these new categories or subcategories to the Atlanta classification will be useful. The categories or subcategories we recommend be added to the Atlanta definition could either stand on their own as categories or be considered subcategories of necrosis.
