Clinical analysis of pregnancy associated with acute pancreatitis

Mohammed Alnaggar


The incidence of pregnancy associated with acute pancreatitis is relatively low, the incidence rate in pregnant women is 1/1000 to 1/12000. Once attacks, the disease develops quickly, easily leading to multiple organ dysfunctions. Foreign reports showed that maternity and perinatal mortality in the 1980s were 0.37% and 11.37%. Pancreatic tissues contain estrogen receptors that increase the risk of pregnancy associated with acute pancreatitis (AP) in a high estrogen environment during pregnancy.
