Surgical Management of an Ileal J-Pouch-Anal Anastomosis Volvulus

CONCLUSION: An endoscopic decompression was required to allow a laparoscopic treatment, and a bilateral pouchopexy was needed to avoid recurrence. This standardized approach might be a good treatment option, and we are awaiting additional follow-up to determine its long-term durability. In addition to the already described risk factors (minimally invasive technique, female sex, and low BMI), an anterior positioning of the pouch mesentery might be a potential risk factor as well for pouch volvulus. However, these observations should be carefully interpreted, considering the small number of cases.

AbstractAplastic anemia (AA) has been reported to be associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but mostly with ulcerative colitis (UC). Little is known about the associations between AA and Crohn ’s disease (CD). We aim to determine the portraits of patients with AA-CD. Among a total of 657 patients with CD registered in Xijing Hospital of Digestive Diseases IBD center from January 2008 to October 2018, the patients diagnosed with concurrent AA were reviewed. Clinical presentation, medical history, endoscopic features, response to treatment, and prognosis in this set of patients were collected. Six male patie...

Authors: Che L, Li Y, Song R, Qin C, Hao W, Wang B, Yang L, Peng P, Xu F Abstract Ulcerative colitis is closely associated with colorectal cancer, the long-standing chronic inflammation being the key etiology of ulcerative colitis. The aim of the present study was to identify the anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptosis activity of taraxasterol in ulcerative colitis. MTT assay was used to obtain the optimal concentrations of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and taraxasterol for cell treatments in vitro. A mouse model of colitis was established via dextran sodium sulphate (DSS) administration. Levels of IL-6 and TNF-α wer...

Authors: Seyedian SS, Nokhostin F, Malamir MD Abstract Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) are classified as chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) which have similar symptoms and lead to digestive disorders and inflammation in the digestive system. The reason why they occur is still a mystery. A number of factors can be attributed to the prevalence of CD and UC, some of which include geographical location, inappropriate diet, genetics, and inappropriate immune response. Both diseases are more often diagnosed in urban areas compared to rural areas and both have their own challenges and side effects,...
