Cost-Benefit Limitations of Extended, Outpatient Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis Following Surgery for Crohn’s Disease
CONCLUSION: Extended prophylaxis in patients with Crohn’s disease postoperatively is not cost-effective when the cumulative incidence of posthospital thrombosis remains less than 4.9%. These findings are driven by the low absolute risk of thrombosis in this population and the considerable cost of universal treatment. See Video Abstract at http://links.lww.com/DCR/A998.

Exposure to Anti-tumor Necrosis Factor Medications Increases the Incidence of Pouchitis After Restorative Proctocolectomy in Patients With Ulcerative Colitis
CONCLUSION: In a large cohort of patients undergoing IPAA for ulcerative colitis with at least a 5-year follow-up, anti-tumor necrosis factor exposure was the only independent risk factor for the development of pouchitis. These agents may “precondition” the pouch to develop pouchitis through alterations in the microbiome and/or local host immunity of the terminal ileum.

Definitive Chemoradiation for Rectal Cancer: Is There a Role for Dose Escalation? A National Cancer Database Study
This study used deidentified data from the National Cancer Database. PATIENTS: We queried the national cancer database from 2004 to 2014 for stage 1 to 3 rectal adenocarcinoma treated with only chemotherapy and radiation to definitive doses. Dose escalated therapy was defined as>54 Gy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Univariable and multivariable analyses were performed to identify sociodemographic, treatment, and tumor characteristics predictive of dose escalation and overall survival. Propensity-adjusted Cox proportional hazard ratios for survival were used to account for indication bias. RESULTS: Among the 6311 patie...

Clinical Anastomotic Leakage After Rectal Cancer Resection Can Be Predicted by Pelvic Anatomic Features on Preoperative MRI Scans: A Secondary Analysis of a Randomized Controlled Trial
CONCLUSIONS: Increments of the width of the presacral space, thickness of rectal wall, and distal part of the sigmoid colon helps to identify individuals not at risk for clinical anastomotic leakage after rectal cancer resection. The first variable is the strongest predictor. Changes of these variables should be taken into consideration when evaluating the application of defunctioning stoma.

Hidradenitis Suppurativa
Case Summary: A 66-year-old obese (BMI 34) diabetic man, a former smoker who had quit 4 months ago, had a 20-year history of perianal, inguinal, and gluteal hidradenitis suppurativa. He presented to the office with persistent perianal and gluteal inflammation and drainage. He had had various surgical excisions of the affected area over the preceding 10 years. The patient was also following up with dermatology and was previously on doxycycline and infliximab with little improvement in his symptoms. On physical examination of his gluteal and perianal region, he had multiple areas of scarring and draining sinus tracts with ...

Hand-Crafted Endoluminal Vacuum-Assisted Drainage for Anastomotic Leak After IPAA
CONCLUSIONS: Anastomotic leak at the IPAA traditionally takes up to a year to heal, which causes a significant toll on the psychosocial life of the patient and delayed stoma closure. Therefore, we believe that facilitating the healing process by using our hand-crafted endoluminal vacuum-assisted closure drain might provide a great value to patients’ quality of life.

Surgical Techniques and Differences in Postoperative Outcomes for Patients With Crohn’s Disease With Ileosigmoid Fistulas: A Single-Institution Experience, 2010–2016
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.
