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. There is controversy whether anastomotic ulcers represent disease recurrence and should be included in the grading system. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of anastomotic ulcers on Crohn’s disease recurrence in patients with prior…

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…

Impact of Bariatric Surgery on the Long-term Disease Course of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Impact of Bariatric Surgery on the Long-term Disease Course of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2019 Oct 15;: Authors: Neto MBB, Gregory MH, Ramos GP, Bazerbachi F, Bruining DH, Abu Dayyeh BK, Kushnir VM, Raffals LE, Ciorba MA, Loftus EV, Deepak P Abstract BACKGROUND: An association between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and obesity has been observed. Little is known about the effect of weight loss on IBD course. Our aim was to determine the impact of bariatric surgery on long-term clinical course of obese patients with IBD, either Crohn’s…
