  • Recent studies have evaluated and compared the efficacy of normal saline (NS) and lactated Ringer's (LR) in reducing the severity of acute pancreatitis (AP) and improving outcomes such as length of stay, the occurrence of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), ICU admission and mortality. We performed an updated systematic review and meta-analysis of the available studies to assess the impact of these fluids on outcomes secondary to AP.
