Managing Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease Who Develop Prostate Cancer.

Related Articles Managing Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease Who Develop Prostate Cancer. Dig Dis Sci. 2019 Nov 11;: Authors: Kim J, Feagins LA Abstract Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the USA. Interestingly, recent studies suggest that patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are at increased risk of developing prostate cancer. Importantly, patients with IBD who develop prostate cancer require thoughtful care when using immunosuppressants to treat the IBD in the setting of malignancy. Further, consideration must be given to the proximity of the prostate to…

Anastomotic Ulcers After Ileocolic Resection for Crohn’s Disease Are Common and Predict Recurrence.

Related Articles Anastomotic Ulcers After Ileocolic Resection for Crohn’s Disease Are Common and Predict Recurrence. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2019 Oct 19;: Authors: Hirten RP, Ungaro RC, Castaneda D, Lopatin S, Sands BE, Colombel JF, Cohen BL Abstract BACKGROUND: Crohn’s disease recurrence after ileocolic resection is common and graded with the Rutgeerts score.

Bariatric Surgery and Its Complications in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients.

Bariatric Surgery and Its Complications in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2019 Oct 18;: Authors: Singh A, Koenen B, Kirby DF Abstract Recent data have suggested that bariatric procedures, especially laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG), are safe and effective weight loss measures in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). But most of the studies have looked at short-term outcomes, and there is a general lack of awareness of underlying disease processes and baseline comorbidities in IBD patients undergoing bariatric procedures. Postbariatric issues in IBD patients including diarrhea from dumping…

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2019 Oct 14;: Authors: Gausman V, Dornblaser D, Anand S, Hayes RB, O’Connell K, Du M, Liang PS Abstract BACKGROUND & AIMS: The incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) is increasing in individuals younger than 50 years, who do not usually undergo screening if they are of average risk. We sought to identify risk factors for CRC in this population. METHODS: We compared sociodemographic and medical characteristics of patients who received a diagnosis of CRC at an age of 18-49 years…
