Increased Risk of Gallstone Disease Following Colectomy for Ulcerative Colitis.

Increased Risk of Gallstone Disease Following Colectomy for Ulcerative Colitis. Am J Gastroenterol. 2017 Jan 24;: Authors: Mark-Christensen A, Brandsborg S, Laurberg S, Johansen N, Pachler JH, Thorlacius-Ussing O, Kjær MD, Qvist N, Preisler L, Hillingsø J, Rosenberg J, Jepsen P Abstract OBJECTIVES: Biochemical studies suggest that patients who have had a colectomy or restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) are at an increased risk of developing gallstone disease, but epidemiological studies are lacking. We evaluated the risk of gallstone disease following colectomy and IPAA. METHODS: Individuals who had…

Responsiveness of Endoscopic Indices of Disease Activity for Crohn’s Disease.

Responsiveness of Endoscopic Indices of Disease Activity for Crohn’s Disease. Am J Gastroenterol. 2017 Jan 10;: Authors: Khanna R, Zou G, Stitt L, Feagan BG, Sandborn WJ, Rutgeerts P, McDonald JW, Dubcenco E, Fogel R, Panaccione R, Jairath V, Nelson S, Shackelton LM, Huang B, Zhou Q, Robinson AM, Levesque BG, D’Haens G Abstract OBJECTIVES: The Crohn’s Disease Endoscopic Index of Severity (CDEIS) and the Simple Endoscopic Score for Crohn’s Disease (SES-CD) are commonly used to assess Crohn’s disease (CD) activity; however neither instrument is fully validated. We evaluated the…

ACG Clinical Guideline: Preventive Care in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

ACG Clinical Guideline: Preventive Care in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Am J Gastroenterol. 2017 Jan 10;: Authors: Farraye FA, Melmed GY, Lichtenstein GR, Kane SV Abstract Recent data suggest that inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients do not receive preventive services at the same rate as general medical patients. Patients with IBD often consider their gastroenterologist to be the primary provider of care. To improve the care delivered to IBD patients, health maintenance issues need to be co-managed by both the gastroenterologist and primary care team. Gastroenterologists need to explicitly inform the…

Meta-Analytic Bayesian Model For Differentiating Intestinal Tuberculosis from Crohn’s Disease.

Meta-Analytic Bayesian Model For Differentiating Intestinal Tuberculosis from Crohn’s Disease. Am J Gastroenterol. 2017 Jan 03;: Authors: Limsrivilai J, Shreiner AB, Pongpaibul A, Laohapand C, Boonanuwat R, Pausawasdi N, Pongprasobchai S, Manatsathit S, Higgins PD Abstract OBJECTIVES: Distinguishing intestinal tuberculosis (ITB) from Crohn’s disease (CD) is difficult, although studies have reported clinical, endoscopic, imaging, and laboratory findings that help to differentiate these two diseases. We aimed to produce estimates of the predictive power of these findings and construct a comprehensive model to predict the probability of ITB vs. CD. METHODS:…
