Abstract

In acute pancreatitis group, all the dogs are showed increase of amylase and lipase after the 1st day of surgery, and amylase and lipase activity were significantly more increased than those of control group. The methemalbumin was increased significantly after the 2nd day of surgery in the acute pancreatitis group. In pancreatitis group, ultrasonographic findings included thickened duodenal wall and poorly circumscribed hyperechoic lesion of pancreatic mass after the 2nd day of surgery. And the lesion was exacerbated until the 4th day and reduced after the 6th day of surgery. To identify the lesion of pancreas, it is considered that transverse view is more useful Than sagittal view. Gross findings showed increase of pancreatic parenchymal consistency, surface nodule, and extensive pancreatic necrosis. Necrosis of peripancreatic fat tissue was also a prominent feature. The microscopic appearance of the pancreas was characterized by pancreatic acinar cell necrosis, hemorrhage, infiltration of the inflammatory cell and fat necrosis and saponification were also observed.
