Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Rochester Medical Center, 601 Elmwood Ave, Box 626, Rochester, NY 14642, USA.

Ischemic colitis (IC) results from reduced colonic vascular perfusion, accounting for 50-60% of all gastrointestinal ischemic episodes. IC leads to mucosal damage with clinical symptom severity developing based on the duration and extent of colonic injury. In rare cases IC may form a mass-like lesion mimicking malignancy. Read More

A Rare Case of Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury After Mesenteric Revascularization.

Vasc Endovascular Surg 2019 Apr 14:1538574419839547. Epub 2019 Apr 14.

1 Department of Angiology and Vascular Surgery, Quirónsalud Málaga Hospital, Málaga, Spain.

Endovascular treatment of chronic mesenteric ischemia is currently the treatment of choice, regardless of the number of involved vessels. Unlike other anatomic areas, the hyperperfusion produced by revascularization and the consecutive reperfusion syndrome is only described in cases of acute bowel ischemia, which is usually resolved with traditional surgery. We present a case of severe hyperperfusion syndrome secondary to endovascular correction with stents of a critical ischemia affecting the celiac trunk and superior mesenteric artery. Read More

Bypassing major venous occlusion and duodenal lesions in rats, and therapy with the stable gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157, L-NAME and L-arginine.

World J Gastroenterol 2018 Dec;24(47):5366-5378

Department of Pharmacology, Medical Faculty, University of Zagreb, Zagreb 10000, Croatia.

Aim: To investigate whether duodenal lesions induced by major venous occlusions can be attenuated by BPC 157 regardless nitric oxide (NO) system involvement.

Methods: Male Wistar rats underwent superior anterior pancreaticoduodenal vein (SAPDV)-ligation and were treated with a bath at the ligated SAPDV site (BPC 157 10 μg, 10 ng/kg per 1 mL bath/rat; L-NAME 5 mg/kg per 1 mL bath/rat; L-arginine 100 mg/kg per 1 mL bath/rat, alone and/or together; or BPC 157 10 μg/kg instilled into the rat stomach, at 1 min ligation-time). We recorded the vessel presentation (filled/appearance or emptied/disappearance) between the 5 arcade vessels arising from the SAPDV on the ventral duodenum side, the inferior anterior pancreaticoduodenal vein (IAPDV) and superior mesenteric vein (SMV) as bypassing vascular pathway to document the duodenal lesions presentation; increased NO- and oxidative stress [malondialdehyde (MDA)]-levels in duodenum.

Inferior mesenteric artery replantation does not decrease the risk of ischemic colitis after open infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.

J Vasc Surg 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Surgery, The George Washington University Hospital, Washington, DC.

Background: Ischemic colitis after an open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair remains a serious complication with a nationally reported rate of 1% to 6% in elective cases and up to 60% after an aneurysmal rupture. To prevent this serious complication, inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) replantation is performed at the discretion of the surgeon based on his or her intraoperative findings, despite the lack of clear evidence to support this practice. The purpose of this study was to determine whether replantation of the IMA reduces the risk of ischemic colitis and improves the overall outcome of AAA repair. Read More

Stent-assisted balloon-induced intimal disruption and relamination of distal remaining aortic dissection after acute DeBakey type I repair.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Oct 17. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Department of Cardiac and Vascular Surgery, Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou, AP-HP, Paris, France; INSERM U970, Faculté de Médecine Paris-Descartes, Université Paris 5, Paris, France.

Objectives: Surgical repair in patients with acute DeBakey type I aortic dissection (ADIAD) achieves good short-term results, but in several patients the false lumen remains patent in the descending aorta because of distal intimal tears with persisting risk for distal aneurismal evolution. We report the short- and mid-term outcomes of the stent-assisted balloon-induced intimal disruption and relamination of aortic dissection (STABILISE) technique for the 16 first patients treated for a residual dissection of the descending thoracic aorta after repaired ADIAD.

Methods: We reviewed all patients treated with STABILISE for a remaining distal thoracoabdominal aortic dissection after ADIAD repair. Read More

MDCT in acute ischaemic left colitis: a pictorial essay.

Radiol Med 2019 Feb 27;124(2):103-108. Epub 2018 Oct 27.

Radiology Department, University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, Naples, Italy.

The pathogenesis of acute ischaemic colitis depends on two different forms of vascular colonic insult: occlusive injury and non-occlusive injury. Clinically, ischaemic colitis may be classified as two major forms: mild (non-gangrenous) and acute fulminant (gangrenous). The classic presentation is abdominal pain, diarrhoea and/or rectal bleeding, but it is not specific and highly variable and so the diagnosis usually depends on clinical suspicion and is supported by serologic and colonoscopic findings.

Department of Surgery, Filiates General Hospital, Filiates 46300, Greece.

Rectal ischemia rarely occurs because of the rich vascular supply of the rectum, while endoscopic presentation of ischemic colitis always is not distinct and can uncommonly mimic malignant neoplasm. We present a case of a rectal ischemia, which presented with haematochezia and proctoscopy revealed a large ulcerating mass, masquerading as rectal cancer and obstructed the lumen of rectum. However, histological examinations showed only features for ischemic colitis and no evidence for malignancy. Read More

Recent advances in pharmacological research on the management of irritable bowel syndrome.

Arch Pharm Res 2018 Oct 21;41(10):955-966. Epub 2018 Aug 21.

Department of Pharmacology, College of Pharmacy, Chung-Ang University, 84 Heukseok-RO, Dongjak-Gu, Seoul, 06974, Republic of Korea.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a common gastrointestinal (GI) disorder, is associated with various factors, including lifestyle, infection, stress, intestinal flora, and related diseases. The pharmacotherapeutic stimulation of receptors and downstream signaling pathways is effective in reducing IBS symptoms; however, it is still associated with adverse effects. Various receptors related to GI motility and visceral hypersensitivity should be considered to enhance the benefit/risk ratio of IBS treatments. Read More

[Clinical features of 60 patients with ischemic colitis].

Nihon Shokakibyo Gakkai Zasshi 2018;115(7):643-654

Division of Medicine and Clinical Science, Department of Multidisciplinary Internal Medicine, Tottori University Faculty of Medicine.

Clinical features of 60 patients with ischemic colitis diagnosed at our hospital were analyzed. Ischemic colitis developed in 58 patients (97%) shortly after the evening meal, and in 52 patients (87%), it occurred while the patients were asleep from night to daybreak. The supine position while sleeping resulted in a decrease in the blood flow to the colonic wall and an increase in the intraluminal pressure due to a delay in excretion of the contents of the gut.

Comparative safety of bowel cleansers: protocol for a systematic review and network meta-analysis.

BMJ Open 2018 Jun 27;8(6):e021892. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Clinical Epidemiology Program, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Introduction: The US Food and Drug Administration has withdrawn the bowel cleansing kit HalfLytely (PEG 3500) with 10 mg bisacodyl tablets due to an increased risk of ischaemic colitis compared with the same kit with only 5 mg bisacodyl. This is of interest in Canada given that the bowel cleansing kit Bi-Peglyte (PEG 3500) with 15 mg bisacodyl is currently approved for use. The objective is to assess the comparative safety of various bowel cleansers with or without bisacodyl, with a primary interest inpolyethylene glycol (PEG)-based and sodium-picosulfate-based products.

Fibrin patch influences the expression of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α and nuclear factor-κBp65 factors on ischemic intestinal anastomosis.

Exp Biol Med (Maywood) 2018 06;243(10):803-808

4 Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Madrid, 28040, Spain.

The intestinal anastomotic failure is one of the most severe complications in gastrointestinal surgery. Despite the great surgical improvements during the last decade, anastomotic leak rates remain practically the same, with a dramatically high grade of morbidity for patients. Leakages are usually the final consequence of ischemia in the anastomosis, leading to tissue hypoxia. Read More

Anti-Inflammatory Biologics and Anti-Tumoral Immune Therapies-Associated Colitis: A Focused Review of Literature.

Gastroenterology Res 2018 Jun 31;11(3):174-188. Epub 2018 May 31.

Department of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine, College of Medicine, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA.

An increasing number of drugs including monoclonal antibodies and small molecules, either anti-inflammatory or immunity-enhancing, have been developed to treat human diseases and the number of medications in these classes is likely to expand in the future. The two most commonly used categories of such therapies are the anti-inflammatory group (anti- tumor necrosis factor (TNF) α, anti-interleukins/interleukin receptors, and anti-integrin bodies) and the anti-tumoral agents (immune checkpoint inhibitors, anti-CD20, and anti-endothelial growth factor). Although the anti-inflammatory biologics have brought about a revolutionary effect in the management of a variety of autoimmune disorders including rheumatologic diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, and inflammatory dermatological diseases, their ability to induce colitis in patients without a prior history of colitis or exacerbate quiescent colitis has been increasingly and unexpectedly recognized.
