In this study, we use serological levels and inflammatory markers to predict the potential of complications in patients undergoing resections for complicated Crohn's disease.MethodsAll patients undergoing laparoscopic bowel resection for Crohn ’s disease from 5th of November 2012 to 11th of October 2017 were included in this retrospective observational study. Patients were divided into 4 groups scoring 0, 1, 2 or 3 depending on their pre-operative haemoglobin concentration (Hb), C-reactive protein (CRP) and albumin (Alb) where 1 point w as given for an abnormal value in each as detailed in the definitions. They were ...

FuksSummaryAppendix intussusception is rare, can be responsible of chronic unexplained abdominal pain and is mostly associated with inflammatory changes or endometriosis. A 23-year-old woman with Crohn's disease was diagnosed invaginated appendix by CT-scan and colonoscopy after several acute atypical abdominal pain episodes. These episodes were suspected to be independent of the Crohn's disease and to be attributed to the intussusception itself. A resection combining ligation of the base by colonoscopy ...

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.

Clinics in Colon and Rectal Surgery 2019; 32: 300-304 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1683922Minimally invasive approaches are safe, feasible, and often recommended as the initial choice in the surgical management of Crohn's disease. However, a consensus has not been reached as the ideal approach in the surgical treatment of complex and recurrent Crohn's disease. Laparoscopy may provide advantages such as shorter length of stay and decreased postoperative pain and result in less adhesion formation in patients with complex disease. Robotic techniques may be beneficial in selected patients for completion proctectomy, providing better vi...

The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease is increasing and despite advances in medical therapy, patients continue to require operations for complications of their disease. Minimally invasive surgical options have impacted postoperative morbidity dramatically with reduction of pain, length of stay and adhesion formation, but additionally, this population of patients are not only concerned with successful operative therapy but also the ability to return to their lifestyle and cosmetics. Laparoscopic and robotic surgery for Crohn's disease has proven to benefit patients with ileocolic or colonic disease, however complicate...

Authors: Lianos GD, Katsanos KH, Saridi M, Albani E, Koutroumpakis E, Zeglinas C, Glantzounis GK, Papaconstantinou I, Christodoulou DK Abstract Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) consists of two disorders: Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). Over the past few decades, a great body of knowledge has accumulated regarding the pathogenesis of IBD, and effective pharmaceutical agents, such as inhibitors of tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF), have been introduced. Although these agents have dramatically improved the outcome of IBD, up to 70% of patients with CD and 10-30% of those with UC still undergo surgery ...

CONCLUSIONS: Single-shot antibiotic therapy without bowel preparation is safe in patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery and was associated with a low number of complications; however, organ/space infections were more common if colorectal resections were performed. Therefore, combined bowel preparation might be beneficial when the (sigmoid) colon or rectum are involved. PMID: 30840131 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
