BACKGROUND: Optimal elective surgical treatment for splenic flexure neoplasm (SFN) is unclear. Subtotal colectomy (STC) and left hemicolectomy (LHC) are the two more common strategies used. METHODS: Observational multicentric study comparing postoperative morbidity, mortality and long-term survival on patients with SFN electively operated by STC versus LHC between 2003 and 2014. RESULTS: After revision of the databases, 144 patients were included (STC group, n = 68; LHC group, n = 76)...

EDITORIAL
Luca Roncucci, Monica Pedroni, Francesco Mariani
Attenuated adenomatous polyposis (AAP) is a poorly understood syndrome, that can be defined as the presence of 10-99 synchronous adenomas in the large bowel, and it is considered a phenotypic variant of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). This definition has the advantage of simplicity, but it may include sporadic multiple adenomas of the large bowel at an extreme, or FAP cases on the other side. AAP shows a milder phenotype than FAP, with an older age of onset of adenomas and cancer, and less frequent extracolonic manifestations...

BACKGROUND: The risk of metachronous colorectal cancer is high after surgical resection for first colon cancer in Lynch syndrome. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to examine whether extended surgery decreases the risk of subsequent colorectal cancer and improves long-term survival. DESIGN: This was a retrospective study. SETTING: Data were collected from a nationwide registry. PATIENTS: Two hundred forty-two Lynch syndrome pathogenic variant carriers who underwent surgery for a first colon cancer from 1984 to 2009 were included...

PURPOSE: The aim of medical treatment of severe acute colitis (SAC) complicating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is to avoid surgery, but in 20 to 50% of the cases, colectomy remains necessary. This study aimed to determine the impact of the different lines of medical therapy (i.e., steroids, anti-TNF, or ciclosporin) on postoperative course after laparoscopic subtotal colectomy for SAC complicating IBD. METHODS: All the patients who underwent laparoscopic subtotal colectomy for SAC were included and divided into two groups: those who presented with postoperative morbidity (group A) and those with an uneventful postoperative course (group B)...

Ogilvie syndrome is defined as colonic pseudo-obstruction due to nonmechanical causes. Mortality of nearly 50% is associated with perforation of the distended, pseudo-obstructed colon. While conservative medical therapy has proven to be beneficial in a majority of cases, >3% of patients have significant distention or perforation of the colon that warrants surgical resection. The case of a 48-year-old male with progressive abdominal discomfort and distention 12 days following knee replacement surgery is presented...

AIM: Surgical management of colonic Crohn's disease (CD) is still unclear because different procedures can be adopted. The choice of operation is dependent on the involvement of colonic disease but the advantages and disadvantages of the extent of resection are still debated. METHOD: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the differences in short-term and long-term outcomes of adult patients with colonic CD, who underwent either subtotal colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis (STC) or segmental colectomy (SC) or total proctocolectomy and end ileostomy (TPC)...

BACKGROUND: Surgical resection of all sites of disease, in combination with effective systemic chemotherapy, offers the only potential chance for cure for patients with stage IV colorectal cancer (CRC). Coordinated multistage resection using a minimally invasive approach may provide optimal oncologic outcome while potentially offering the benefit of decreased morbidity. PATIENT: A 66-year-old women presented with transverse colon cancer and synchronous metastasis (CRLM) in segment IV involving the middle hepatic vein and main left portal pedicle, as well as the left adrenal gland...

Introduction A colorectal inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT) is a rare but benign entity masquerading as a malignant tumour. Although the lung is considered the most common site of occurrence, IMTs may arise in diverse extrapulmonary locations. We describe a case of a colonic IMT in a patient who presented in the emergency setting. Case History A 77-year-old man was admitted at our emergency department with acute abdominal pain. Physical examination revealed vague tenderness of the lower abdomen and non-palpable masses...

Hemangiomas and vascular malformations of the gastrointestinal tract are rare clinical entities that usually present as overt or occult bleeding. They can be distributed throughout the gastrointestinal system, or present as a singular cavernous hemangioma. Overall, 80% of such malformations are of cavernous subtype and are misdiagnosed as hemorrhoids and ulcerative colitis. Mucosal edema, nodularity and vascular congestion can lead to the incorrect diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease. We present a case of 26-year-old male who presented with pain abdomen, bleeding per rectum and was treated as a case of ulcerative colitis for past 12 years on the basis of clinical and radiological features...

BACKGROUND: Accurate diagnosis of Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis is essential for surgical planning. This study compared the accuracy, safety, and utility of small bowel follow-through (SBFT) and magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) for detecting small bowel (SB) involvement preoperatively. METHODS: A retrospective review of children who underwent colectomy for inflammatory bowel disease (2000-2014) was performed. Preoperative SBFT and MRE were independently reviewed by two radiologists blinded to clinical data...

AIM: Subtotal colectomy (STC) is a well-established treatment for complicated and refractory ulcerative colitis (UC). A laparoscopic approach offers potentially improved outcomes. The aim of the study was to report our experience with STC for UC in a single large centre. METHOD: From January 2007 to May 2015, all consecutive patients undergoing STC for UC were retrospectively analysed from a prospectively managed database. Patients with known Crohn's disease or those undergoing one-stage procedures were excluded...

REVIEW
John Tillou, Vitaliy Poylin
Constipation is a very common complaint, with slow-transit constipation (STC) accounting for a significant proportion of cases. Old age, female gender, psychiatric illness, and history of sexual abuse are all associated with STC. The exact cause of STC remains elusive; however, multiple immune and cellular changes have been demonstrated. Diagnosis requires evidence of slowed colonic transit which may be achieved via numerous modalities. While a variety of medical therapies exist, these are often met with limited success and a minority of patients ultimately require operative intervention...
