INTRODUCTION: The terminal ileum is the most involved tract in Crohn's disease. The obstruction in this location is the most frequent complication. Acute or chronic presentations can occur. Surgery finds a role in the management of chronic strictures and in acute clinical presentations with complications not improving with conservative therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We investigate the outcome of patients with obstruction of the ileo-cecal bowel tract laparoscopically managed...

BACKGROUND: Studies on the outcome of ileocecal resection in pediatric Crohn's disease (CD) have a limited follow-up and fail to assign predictors of adverse outcomes. Therefore, we aimed to investigate (I) the complication and disease recurrence rates and (II) identify risk factors for these adverse outcomes after ileocecal resection for pediatric CD. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort analysis of all children (<18 years) that underwent ileocecal resection as first intestinal resection for CD derived from 7 tertiary hospitals in the Netherlands (1990-2015)...

Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital abnormality of the small intestine that results from incomplete closure of the vitelline (omphalo-mesenteric) duct. This true diverticulum, ~2 ft from the ileocecal valve commonly found on the anti-mesenteric border of the ileum, is benign and majority asymptomatic. Diagnosis challenges arise when it became inflamed or presented in following ways, for example, haemorrhage (caused by ectopic pepsin-and hydrochloric acid-secreting gastric mucosa), intestinal obstruction (secondary to intussusception or volvulus) or the presence of diverticulum in the hernia sac (Littre's hernia)...

BACKGROUND: A cavenous hemangioma of the appendix (CHA) is rare. The clinical pathophysiology and adequate management of a CHA have not been sufficiently explained since reports on CHA are scarce. CASE PRESENTATION: A 56-year-old woman presented with chronic right lower quadrant pain. Abdominal contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed a thickened appendix (1.5 cm in diameter) and some focal calcifications in the appendiceal wall. No acute inflammatory signs were visible around the appendix...

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: A systematic literature search for studies differentiating ITB from CD was conducted in MEDLINE, PUBMED, and EMBASE from inception until September 2015...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Paratuberculosis (Johne's disease) is a chronic infectious granulomatous enteritis, primarily affecting ruminants, and caused by Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis (MAP). The disease is widely prevalent throughout the world with significant economic losses. MAP has also been implicated with human Crohn's disease. There exists a strong correlation between the immune response and development of various types of pathologies in ruminants. The polarization of the immune response, which is critical to clinical outcome of the paratuberculosis infection, is controlled by the differential expression of certain cytokines and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in Johne's disease...

A 61-year-old man was being treated for poor nutritional status. He had been on weekly methotrexate 6 mg and daily tacrolimus 1 mg and prednisolone 18 mg for 8 years due to dermatomyositis. On further workup, he was initially detected to have ileocecal ulcer with subsequent development of diffuse miliary shadows on chest radiograph. He was diagnosed as having ileocecal with miliary tuberculosis (TB). While receiving anti-tuberculous therapy, there was initial improvement of TB-related symptoms and he had no conditions that interfered with the efficiency of the anti-tuberculous therapy...

Most anterior mediastinal tumors are thymomas. Thymic metastasis from other primary cancers is extremely rare. We report the case of a 72-year-old man who developed thymic and mediastinal lymph node metastases of cecum cancer. He had undergone laparoscopic ileocecal resection with regional lymph node dissection for primary cecum cancer 15 months previously. Follow-up computed tomography revealed tumors in the anterior mediastinum. Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography showed positive uptake in the tumors...

AIMS: To examine the expression of miRNAs and mRNAs of heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1) in patients with active intestinal Behcet's disease (BD). METHODS: Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were obtained from BD patients with active ileocecal ulcers or from healthy donors. Expression levels of four miRNAs were studied using real-time PCR. The levels of mRNAs of ho-1, bach1, and CD14 were measured by qRT-PCR. Serum levels of cytokines were analyzed by ELISA. RESULTS: Among four miRNAs, only levels of miR-196a2 were significantly decreased from BD patients with active ileocecal ulcers as compared with healthy controls...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the ability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and systematic evaluation at surgery to predict optimal cytoreduction in primary advanced ovarian cancer and to develop a preoperative scoring system for cancer staging. STUDY DESIGN: Preoperative MRI and standard laparotomy were performed in 99 women with either ovarian or primary peritoneal cancer. Using univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis of a systematic description of the tumor in nine abdominal compartments obtained by MRI and during surgery plus clinical parameters, a scoring system was designed that predicted non-optimal cytoreduction...

Ileocolic intussusception due to Burkitt lymphoma is extremely rare in adults. A man aged 17 years presented with a history of recurrent abdominal pain over the past 3 weeks. The abdomen was distended with diffuse tenderness, and bowel sounds were present. Abdominal ultrasound and CT scans showed evidence of small bowel obstruction with marked wall thickening in the ileocecal region and 'target' signs suggestive for intussusception. At laparoscopy, a mass involving the caecum and the terminal ileum was found, along with multiple locoregional nodes, which was highly suggestive of malignancy...

OBJECTIVE: Computer-aided detection (CAD) systems for computed tomography colonography (CTC) can automatically detect colorectal polyps. The main problem of currently developed CAD-CTC systems is the numerous false positives (FPs) caused by the existence of complicated colon structures (e.g., haustral fold, residual fecal material, inflation tube, and ileocecal valve). This study proposes a CAD-CTC scheme using shape index, multiscale enhancement filters, and radiomic features to address the FP issue...

Anomalies of the appendix are extremely rare, and a horseshoe appendix is even rarer. A literature search has revealed only five reported cases. In this report, we present a case of a horseshoe appendix.A 78-year-old man was referred for further examination following a positive fecal occult blood test. A mass in his ascending colon was detected on colonoscopy, while computed tomography showed that it was connected to the appendix. Tumor invasion derived from the ascending colon or appendix was suspected. We diagnosed ascending colon cancer prior to laparoscopic ileocecal resection...

Intussusception is a pediatric abdominal emergency in early childhood involving telescoping of 1 part of the bowel into another part. In most children, the condition is idiopathic with no identifiable lead point. Meckel diverticulum is the most common lead point, followed by polyps and duplication cysts. We describe a case of a boy with intussusception caused by a duplication cyst that was drawn retrograde through the ileocecal valve. The patient presented after a 3-month period of symptomatology and had been considered to have constipation before signs of intestinal obstruction developed...
