A 30-year trend analysis in the epidemiology of inflammatory bowel disease in the Songpa-Kangdong District of Seoul, Korea in 1986-2015.

J Crohns Colitis 2019 Apr 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Gastroenterology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background And Aims: Although the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing in Asia, data on long-term epidemiologic trends are limited. We performed a 30-year longitudinal study to investigate temporal trends in the epidemiology of Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) in Seoul, Korea.

Methods: This population-based study included 1431 IBD patients (418 CD, 1013 UC) diagnosed between 1986 and 2015 in the Songpa-Kangdong district of Seoul, Korea. Read More

Influence of adjuvant antibiotics on fistula formation following incision and drainage of anorectal abscesses: a systematic review protocol.

Syst Rev 2019 Apr 15;8(1):95. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Clinical Epidemiology Program, The University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada.

Background: Development of fistula-in-ano following incision and drainage (I&D) of anorectal abscesses occurs in over 30% of patients. It is associated with significant patient morbidity and societal cost. The use of antibiotics following drainage is controversial, with randomized controlled trials reporting opposing conclusions regarding their influence on the rate of fistula formation. Read More

Rectal adenocarcinoma with rectoprostatic fistula following prostate brachytherapy.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Mar 31;12(3). Epub 2019 Mar 31.

Urology, Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Derby, UK.

An 80-year-old man with history of prostate cancer successfully treated with brachytherapy was initially thought to have Fournier's gangrene until imaging detected a rectoprostatic fistula. Although this is known to be a rare complication of prostate brachytherapy, in this case the aetiology was a new primary rectal adenocarcinoma. It was not possible to catheterise per urethra owing to the fistula, so he was fitted with suprapubic catheter, and underwent palliative loop colostomy. Read More

Better Function With a Colonic J-Pouch or a Side-to-end Anastomosis?: A Randomized Controlled Trial to Compare the Complications, Functional Outcome, and Quality of Life in Patients With Low Rectal Cancer After a J-Pouch or a Side-to-end Anastomosis.

Ann Surg 2019 May;269(5):815-826

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH.

Background Information: We aimed to compare prospectively the complications and functional outcome of patients undergoing a J-Pouch (JP) or a side-to-end anastomosis (SE) for treatment of low rectal cancer at a 2-year time point after resection for rectal cancer.

Long-term outcomes in patients after ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract.

Dan Med J 2019 Apr;66(4)

Introduction: Ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) to treat transsphincteric fistulae has yielded varied but promising results. However, it has been shown that long-term follow-up (> 250 days) is vital to obtain the correct surgical outcome. Here, we present the long-term results of patients undergoing the LIFT procedure at Herlev Hospital, Denmark. Read More

Darvadstrocel for the treatment of patients with perianal fistulas in Crohn's disease.

Drugs Today (Barc) 2019 Feb;55(2):95-105

Department of Biomedical Sciences, Humanitas University, Rozzano, Milan, Italy; IBD Center, Department of Gastroenterology, Humanitas Research Hospital, Rozzano, Milan, Italy.

Despite significant advances in medical and surgical therapy for perianal fistulas in Crohn's disease (CD), treatment results are still modest, and a specific need for more effective therapies is a reality. Darvadstrocel is composed of expanded human allogeneic mesenchymal adult stem cells extracted from adipose tissue and constitutes the first stem cell therapy for perianal fistulizing CD to receive approval from the European Medicines Agency (EMA). This therapy is injected in both internal and external openings, as well as inside the fistula tracks, to induce fistula healing. Read More

Antibiotic use in prevention of anal fistulas following incision and drainage of anorectal abscesses: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Centre for the Advancement of Minimally Invasive Surgery (CAMIS), Royal Alexandra Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Electronic address:

Background: Treatment of anorectal abscesses continues to revolve around early surgical drainage and control of perianal sepsis. Yet even with prompt drainage, abscess recurrence and postoperative fistula formation rates are as high as 40% within 12 months. These complications are thought to be associated with inadequate drainage, elevated bacterial load, or a noncryptoglandular etiology of disease. Read More

Department of Pediatrics and Pediatric Neuropsychiatry, Sapienza University of Rome, Policlinico Umberto I Hospital, Viale del Policlinico, 155, 00161, Rome, Italy.

Objectives: To identify differences between two cohorts of adult and pediatric patients affected by Crohn's disease (CD), with regard to lesion location in the small intestine and colon-rectum, lesion activity, and prevalence of perianal disease (PD), using MRI as the main diagnostic tool.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 350 consecutive MRI examinations performed between 2013 and 2016 in outpatients or inpatients with histologically proven CD, monitored by the Gastroenterology and Pediatric Units of our Hospital. The magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) protocol for adult and pediatric CD patients routinely includes evaluation of nine different intestinal segments (from jejunum to rectum) and of the anal canal.

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of three-dimensional endoanal ultrasound scan (3D-EAUS) in the pre-operative assessment of fistula-in-ano in identifying the fistula tract and comparing with findings at surgery in a South Asian cohort. A retrospective analysis of 87 patients with suspected fistula-in-ano who underwent pre-operative 3D-EAUS between January 2009 and January 2016 was carried out. All patients subsequently had surgical exploration under anaesthesia (EUA), irrespective of 3D-EAUS findings. Read More
