REVIEW
H M van Dullemen, J H Kleibeuker
Treatment strategies for Crohn's disease are targeted toward lifelong management. Optimization of outpatient care is mandatory, because of many clinics facing capacity issues, and, along with routine follow-up of patients with inflammatory bowel disease, is putting increasing pressure on outpatient clinics. Recent studies demonstrate clearly that alternative management strategies are feasible and effective with a high rate of patient satisfaction. It is recommended that future research evaluates the way in which medical care is provided and explores the long-term effects of novel management strategies in IBD...

BACKGROUND: Rectal blood loss is a common late sequel of radiation proctitis. Teleangiectasias appear in the mucosa in 2-5% of patients after radiotherapy of the pelvis. Since pharmacotherapy is usually not beneficial, local treatment modalities with formalin irrigation, Nd:YAG laser and argon plasma coagulation (APC) have been advocated, but experience is still limited. METHODS: Between January 1997 and August 2001, 50 consecutive patients with rectal bleeding due to radiation proctitis were included for treatment with APC...

REVIEW
R J F Felt-Bersma, M Cazemier
Anorectal endosonography (AE), which was introduced 20 years ago, derives from the study of urology. It was first used to evaluate rectal tumours and later also to investigate benign disorders of the anal sphincters and pelvic floor. The technique is easy to perform, it has a short learning curve and causes no more discomfort than a routine digital examination. A rotating probe with a 360 degrees radius and a frequency between 5 and 16 MHz is introduced to the rectum and then slowly withdrawn so that the pelvic floor and subsequently the sphincter complex are seen...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is still a disease with a high incidence and mortality. Prevention of (pre-) cancerous lesions of CRC by endoscopic screening is promising, but costs are high and identification of high-risk populations is difficult. Since screening both average-risk and high-risk populations for CRC has its logistic and financial limitations, new primary prevention strategies are sought. Substantial evidence has shown that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and selective COX-2 inhibitors can reduce the incidence and mortality of CRC...

BACKGROUND: Nodal staging accuracy is important in the prognosis and selection of patients for chemotherapy. This prospective study aims to assess the feasibility and accuracy of the sentinel lymph node procedure (SNP) using radiocolloid and blue dye in colon carcinoma. METHODS: In 56 patients, lymphatic mapping was accomplished by means of intraoperatively injecting patent blue and nanocoll subserosally around the tumour. Sentinel nodes (SNs) were harvested ex-vivo...

REVIEW

Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is a dominant inherited disease and accounts for up to 5% of all colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. Despite the optimization of selection criteria and enhancements in molecular techniques for identifying more families with HNPCC, most cases are not recognized. Poor patient recollection of family history and inadequate family history-taking are main causative factors. We propose a new strategy for detecting HNPCC, one in which the pathologist selects patients for microsatellite instability (MSI) testing...

OBJECTIVE: Direct and indirect evidence supports the concept of screening for adenomas and early stage colorectal cancer in reducing the incidence and disease-specific mortality. Controversy remains as to the appropriateness of and preferred methods for screening an asymptomatic population. METHODS: Review of computed tomography (CT) colonography based on the literature and personal experience. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: Current discrepancies in the data on accuracy and patient acceptance of CT colonography reflect differences in the performance and evaluation of this examination...

REVIEW
E A J Rauws
The prognosis of patients with an unresectable bile duct cancer is poor. In 60-70% of patients, cholangiocarcinoma is located in the hepatic duct bifurcation and known as Klatskin tumour. Surgical resection offers the only chance for 5-year survival, but less than 20% are surgical candidates. Patients with unresectable cholangiocarcinoma are treated with biliary drains, but commonly die of liver failure or cholangitis due to biliary obstruction within 6 to 12 months. Chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy have not been evaluated in randomized, controlled trials...

Oesophagus resection is adequate treatment for some benign oesophageal diseases, especially caustic and peptic stenosis and end-stage motility dysfunction. However, the most frequent indications for oesophageal resection are the high-grade dysplasia of Barrett oesophagus and non-metastasized oesophageal cancer. Different procedures have been developed for performing oesophageal resection given the 5-year survival rate of only 18% among patients operated on. A disadvantage of the conventional approach is the high morbidity rate, especially with pulmonary complications...

BACKGROUND: Various studies have demonstrated that 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), measuring altered tissue glucose metabolism, is a promising non-invasive method for detecting both distant nodal and haematogenous metastases in patients with oesophageal carcinoma (OC) and might thus prevent futile esophagectomy. Moreover, FDG-PET is a promising tool in assessing response to non-surgical treatment, and might therefore be used for an early decision on whether treatment should be stopped or continued...

BACKGROUND: With the routine use of improved imaging modalities, more benign liver lesions are detected nowadays. An accurate characterization of these incidental lesions may be a challenge, and frequently a biopsy or even unnecessary surgery is being performed. However, these interventions are not always to the benefit of the patient. METHODS: A Medline search of studies relevant to imaging diagnosis and management of the most common, benign, solid and non-solid liver lesions was undertaken...

REVIEW

After liver transplantation, the prevalence of complications related to the biliary system is 6-35%. In recent years, the diagnosis and treatment of biliary problems has changed markedly. The two standard methods of biliary reconstruction in liver transplant recipients are the duct-to-duct choledochocholedochostomy and the Roux-en-Y-hepaticojejunostomy. Biliary leakage occurs in approximately 5-7% of transplant cases. Leakage from the site of anastomosis, the T-tube exit site and donor or recipient remnant cystic duct is well described...

REVIEW
Claudia Verveer, Robert J de Knegt
The liver biopsy is still regarded as the gold standard for the assessment of liver disease. However, there is a growing demand for non-invasive assessment of liver fibrosis, which is the most important prognostic factor in chronic liver disease, in particular in viral hepatitis. Transient elastography is a novel, non-invasive and rapid bedside method for assessing liver fibrosis by measuring liver stiffness. Some recent extensive studies, mainly from France, have demonstrated that measurement with the FibroScan is a good alternative for the liver biopsy...

REVIEW
Karel J van Erpecum
Liver cirrhosis is a frequent phenomenon in chronic liver diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, alcohol-related liver damage, autoimmune hepatitis and hemochromatosis. Ascites is the most frequent complication of cirrhosis. We discuss pathogenesis, diagnosis and state-of-the-art clinical management of ascites with emphasis on recent promising developments, such as covered transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS). Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis occurs in up to 10% of patients with ascites because of bacterial overgrowth with translocation through the increased permeable small intestinal wall and impaired defence mechanisms...

BACKGROUND: During a 10-year period we observed 10 patients who suffered from an inflammatory-fibrosing disease mimicking pancreatic carcinoma and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). METHODS: A review of the presenting features, the clinical course and the relevant literature. RESULTS: Ten male patients (mean age 55 years) presented with weight loss, jaundice and pruritus. Pancreatic cancer was suggested by imaging studies, which showed focal or generalized pancreatic enlargement and compression of the distal common bile duct...
