The incidence of acute pancreatitis: impact of social deprivation, alcohol consumption, seasonal and demographic factors.
Bottom Line: Incidence increased significantly from 27.6 per 100,000 in 1999 to 36.4 in 2010 (average annual increase = 2.7% per year), there was little trend in mortality (0.2% average annual reduction).The largest increases in incidence were among women aged <35 years (7.9% per year) and men aged 35-44 (5.7%) and 45-54 (5.3%).Alcoholic admissions were increased with higher consumption of spirits and beer, but not wine.

Mentions: The incidence of acute pancreatitis was 1.9 times higher (95% CI = 1.8–2.0) among the most deprived quintile of patients compared with the most affluent quintile (Figure3a). Figure3b shows that this association between acute pancreatitis and social deprivation was much stronger for alcoholic aetiology (3.9; 95% CI = 3.4–4.5) than for gallstone aetiology (1.5; 1.4–1.7), or for all other and unspecified aetiologies (1.6; 95% CI = 1.4–1.7).
