Abstract

Context: Hospital admissions for pancreatitis are increasing. Factors involved in inpatient mortality have not been previously assessed on a large-scale basis. Objective: The aim was to study factors associated with pancreatitis-related death in hospitalized patients. Setting: Retrospective analysis of the 2004 U.S. Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) database was performed using "pancreatitis" as admitting diagnosis and "mortality" as primary endpoint. Main outcome measures: Age, race, gender, income, length of stay, number of diagnoses, and number of procedures were identified as candidate risk factors associated with death. Design: Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed to identify significant covariates. Results: In 2004, total of 78,864 patients were admitted with pancreatitis; 2,129 (2.7%) patients died. Complete data were available for 57,068 patients. Age greater than 65 was 3 times more often associated with mortality (OR=2.92; P
