ConclusionsScreening colonoscopy was associated with greater reductions in CRC mortality than screening sigmoidoscopy, and with a greater reduction in the distal than the proximal colon. These results provide additional information on the relative benefits of screening for CRC with sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy.

This study included PWH and demographically matched persons without HIV who were aged 50–75 years during 2005–2016 and had no previous CRC screening. We evaluated time to first CRC screening (fecal test, sigmoidoscopy, or colonoscopy). We also assessed detection of adenoma and CRC with sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy by HIV status, accounting for CRC risk factors including sex, age, race/ethnicity, number of outpatient visits, smoking, body mass index, type-2 diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease. Among PWH, we evaluated whether CD4 count (

ConclusionsTo our knowledge, this is the first use of R-TAMIS for rectal mucosa harvest. Our preliminary series indicates this approach is feasible and safe, constituting a promising minimally invasive technique for urethral reconstruction. Prospective studies evaluating graft outcomes and donor site morbidity with more long-term follow-up are needed.

Abstract A 52-year-old man was admitted with diarrhoea and faecaluria and referred recurrent urinary tract infections for over 20 years. He also reported a two-week hospital admission more than 20 years ago for right iliac fossa pain, which was managed conservatively. Computed tomography showed a fistulous tract extending from the bladder with an unclear connection to the bowel. Cystoscopy confirmed the presence of a vesical fistula and biopsy of the tract confirmed colonic mucosa. Flexible sigmoidoscopy was negative. A cystogram was requested as an outpatient procedure and the patient was discharged after antibio...

Abstract Rectal involvement by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is quite rare. Approximately 14 cases have been reported worldwide, but only one with ischemic colitis has been reported in Korea. A 17-year-old female patient was hospitalized with abdominal pain and hematochezia. Sigmoidoscopy revealed only a simple rectal ulcer without ischemic colitis. cytomegalovirus and bacterial infections were excluded. A sigmoidoscopic rectal biopsy indicated a rectal invasion by SLE, but the patient showed an acute worsening conditions that did not respond to treatment. This paper reports a case of rectal ulcer that develo...

CONCLUSION: WW and LE were comparable in terms of 5-year OS and RFS. In the LE group, salvage treatment was performed much less among indicated patients. Therefore, methods to improve the oncologic outcomes of patients indicated for salvage treatment should be considered before local excision. PMID: 31113171 [PubMed]

Ulcerative colitis (UC) typically begins in the rectum and progresses proximally in a contiguous fashion without skip lesions. Post-treatment inflammation distribution can change over time. Colonoscopy is unpleasant for the patient and clinical trials often use sigmoidoscopy for evaluation of disease severity. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether sigmoidoscopy is adequate to assess disease activity and therapeutic response as colonoscopy. We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent colonoscopy for the initial diagnosis and follow-up by evaluating their mucosal inflammation in our hospital from January 2012 ...

CONCLUSION: Early sigmoid colectomy was associated with low morbidity and found to be safe in the elderly, and the results suggest that early surgery is associated with reduced readmissions and a low complication rate, with index surgery preferable to urgent elective surgery. Rigid sigmoidoscopy is a safe method of decompression as a bridge to index surgery and was not associated with any complications in this series. PMID: 30973858 [PubMed - in process]
