OBJECTIVE: Acute pancreatitis during pregnancy is a rare and dangerous disease. This study attempts to present a comprehensive analysis of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) during pregnancy and to identify the factors associated with poor outcomes. METHODS: This study was a retrospective review of the medical records of SAP patients during pregnancy consecutively admitted into the Research Institute of General Surgery from 1999 to 2010. RESULTS: Information was collected on presentation, management, and outcome. Eighteen patients were identified to have been diagnosed with SAP during pregnancy. Eleven patients (61.1%) were nulliparous; most attacks (88.9%) occurred during the third trimester. There were seven cases with preterm labor, six with fetal losses, and no maternal death. The etiology was biliary disease in seven patients (38.9%), hypertriglyceridemia in five patients (27.8%), both biliary and hypertriglyceridemia in four patients (22.2%), and idiopathic in two patients (11.1%). Patients with failure in more than one (≥2) organ were more likely to result in fetal loss (OR = 25, P = 0.016). CONCLUSIONS: SAP during pregnancy is predominantly biliary in etiology, but a significant proportion is caused by hypertriglyceridemia. Patients with failure in at least two organs result in relatively worse fetal outcomes.
