The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in serum levels of procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-17 (IL-17), interleukin-6 (IL-6), high mobility group protein-B1 (HMGB1), and D-dimer in severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) patients during treatment with continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) and the clinical significance.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 92 SAP patients admitted to our hospital from January 2017 to December 2017 were selected and randomly divided into the observation group and the control group using a random number table method, with 46 cases in each group. The control group was given conventional therapy, and the observation group was given CRRT in addition to conventional therapy.
RESULTS: After 1 week, the total effective rate of treatment in the observation group was significantly higher than that in the control group (P<0.05). In the observation group, each index showed a continuous downward trend at 6, 12, and 24 hours after treatment, and at different time points after treatment, the indexes were significantly lower than those in the control group (P<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: CRRT is more effective in the treatment of SAP, and its effects are more obvious in removing a variety of inflammatory factors and reducing the serum levels of PCT, HMGB1, and D-dimer, which is of great clinical significance.
