Abstract

Acute pancreatitis is an inflammatory condition with varying severity and a range of local and systemic complications. Here we report a patient with acute necrotizing pancreatitis complicated with a true non ST elevation myocardial infarction. A 58 year old lady was admitted to our unit with acute onset epigastric pain and vomiting for 4 h duration. Following admission she complained of retrosternal tightening type of a chest pain. She had elevated serum amylase and cardiac troponin. Electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed lateral ischaemia. Contrast computerized tomography abdomen revealed acute severe necrotizing pancreatitis. Nonspecific ECG changes can occur in patients with acute pancreatitis. But the diagnosis of true myocardial infarction in a context of acute pancreatitis using ECGs, 2D echocardiography, cardiac biomarkers and coronary angiograms can be challenging with the choice of revascularization therapy and safety of antiplatelet agents and anticoagulant therapy. Decision making regarding the management of such a patient is also critical.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 March 2018.
All research outputs
#10,101,047
of 12,627,642 outputs
Outputs from BMC Research Notes
#1,946
of 2,837 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#205,610
of 274,088 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Research Notes
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,627,642 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 10th percentile – i.e., 10% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,837 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.4. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 274,088 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
