Conclusions: MRE cannot reliably assess the UGI in pediatric CD and cannot replace EGD for this purpose.

Conclusion: Radiation therapy and pelvic operation for cancer were more common causes than birth injury, and these causes of rectovaginal fistula were the most important prognostic factors. An individualized approach and repeated surgeries with complex or newly developed procedures, even among high-risk causes of fistula, may be necessary to achieve successful closure.

Conclusion: The rate of retention of CE in Crohn's disease is 5-6%, prior to its use, it is recommended to perform imaging studies to evaluate the bowel permeability, however negative studies do not exclude the presence of stenosis. In cases where intestinal resection is indicated, it is recommended to be wide with side-to-side stapled anastomosis to reduce the risk of recurrence of the disease.

We present two patients, one with Crohn's disease and the other with ulcerative colitis, who present nonspecific symptoms, and after resection of an intestinal lesion, a gastrointestinal NET (GINET) is diagnosed. Discussion and conclusion: The GINET have an insidious clinic and these can be confused with those of the IBD. There could be an association between both pathologies; an important role of the chronic intestinal inflammatory process is suggested. The best treatment for GINET is the resection.

CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic surgery for isolated ileosigmoid fistulas in Crohn’s disease is safe and does not result in a different length of stay or incidence of postoperative complications. Primary repair (rather than resection) of the sigmoid colon in these cases, when feasible, appears to be safe and is likely to be cost-effective given the reduced length of stay.

OrlandoAbstractInflammatory bowel disease (IBD), namely, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, remains a grievous and recalcitrant problem incurring significant human and health care costs, even in consideration of the growing incidence. Initial goals of care aimed to achieve the induction and maintenance of clinical remission. The advent of novel treat-to-target approaches using patient stratification, early introduction of immunosuppressants and rapid escalation to bi...

CONCLUSION: Sleep efficiency is lower in patients with active CD than in those in remission. Further studies aimed at better characterizing CD patients' sleep are warranted. PMID: 31512092 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Due to low-certainty evidence in the networks, we are unable to draw conclusions on which treatment is most effective for preventing clinical relapse and endoscopic relapse. Evidence on the safety of the interventions was inconclusive, however cases of pancreatitis and leukopenia from purine analogues were evident in the studies. Larger trials are needed to further understand the effect of the interventions on endoscopic relapse. PMID: 31513295 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
