Related Articles Higher Incidence of Clostridium difficile Infection Among Individuals With Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Gastroenterology. 2017 May 04;: Authors: Singh H, Nugent Z, Yu BN, Lix LM, Targownik LE, Bernstein CN Abstract BACKGROUND & AIMS: Studies of Clostridium difficile infections (CDIs) among individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have used data from single centers or CDI administrative data codes of limited diagnostic accuracy. We determined the incidence, risk factors, and outcomes after CDI in a population-based cohort of patients with IBD and laboratory confirmation diagnoses of CDI. METHODS: We searched…

Outcomes of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Clostridium difficile Infection in Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Related Articles Outcomes of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Clostridium difficile Infection in Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Dig Dis Sci. 2017 Apr 27;: Authors: Meighani A, Hart BR, Bourgi K, Miller N, John A, Ramesh M Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has recently been shown to be a promising therapy for recurrent and refractory Clostridium difficile infections (CDI) despite lack of protocol standardization. Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) present a particular challenge to CDI therapy as they are reported to have worse clinical outcomes, including higher…

Preoperative Clostridium difficile Infection Does Not Affect Pouch Outcomes in Patients with Ulcerative Colitis Who Undergo Ileal Pouch-anal Anastomosis.

Preoperative Clostridium difficile Infection Does Not Affect Pouch Outcomes in Patients with Ulcerative Colitis Who Undergo Ileal Pouch-anal Anastomosis. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2017 Apr 13;: Authors: Lightner AL, Tse CS, Quinn K, Bergquist JR, Enders F, Pendegraft R, Khanna S, Raffals L Abstract BACKGROUND: The operation of choice for patients with chronic ulcerative colitis (CUC) is restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA). Pouchitis is the most common complication after IPAA. The incidence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is higher in CUC patients than the general population and can lead…

Frequency and Risk Factors of Clostridium difficile Infection in Hospitalized Patients With Pouchitis: A Population-based Study. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2017 Apr;23(4):661-671 Authors: Kistangari G, Lopez R, Shen B Abstract BACKGROUND: Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in patients with the ileal pouch after proctocolectomy has been increasingly recognized. We sought to evaluate the frequency and risk factors of CDI in patients with the primary or secondary discharge diagnosis of pouchitis in the United States. METHODS: We reviewed the National Inpatient Sample of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project and identified patients admitted…
