BACKGROUND: Surveillance colonoscopy allows for the early detection and improved treatment outcomes in colorectal neoplasms but compliance rates and factors require further investigation. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study examining 816 patients recalled for surveillance colonoscopy at an Australian colorectal practice over a 6-month period. Primary outcome was compliance with colonoscopy within 12 months of recall. The secondary outcome of this study was to identify factors affecting compliance including patient factors and the practices' graded recall system...

BACKGROUND: Diverticular disease is a common condition in Western industrialised countries. Most individuals remain asymptomatic throughout life; however, 25% experience acute diverticulitis. The standard treatment for acute diverticulitis is open surgery. Laparoscopic surgery - a minimal-access procedure - offers an alternative approach to open surgery, as it is characterised by reduced operative stress that may translate into shorter hospitalisation and more rapid recovery, as well as improved quality of life...

Diverticular colitis is chronic inflammation of the colon where diverticula are present. The endoscopic and histopathological findings of this disease are sometimes similar to those of ulcerative colitis, and several reports describe cases of diverticular colitis that progressed to typical ulcerative colitis. A 77-year-old woman with intramesenteric penetration of the sigmoid diverticulum underwent low anterior resection. One month later, the patient experienced anastomotic leakage, and transverse colostomy was performed...

BACKGROUND: The use of a protective stoma represents an important issue in colorectal surgery. Although evidence suggests that loop ileostomy may be superior, the optimal method for temporary decompression of colorectal anastomosis still remains controversial. Aim of this study was to make an evidence-based proposal for a tailored approach to the use of diverting colostomy or ileostomy. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all patients subjected to creation and closure of a diverting loop colostomy or loop ileostomy between May 2007 and November 2014 in our institution was performed...

Almost all gastrointestinal tract diverticula require no intervention if they are asymptomatic. There is no clear diagnostic modality of choice for diagnosis and surveillance of diverticulum. Medical treatment should be attempted before surgical intervention because significant morbidity is may be associated with resection.

Ultrasonography (US) is frequently the first imaging modality used to examine women with symptoms involving the pelvis. It is widely available and involves no exposure to ionizing radiation. Images can be acquired with a transabdominal, endovaginal, or translabial approach, and the use of video clips and three-dimensional reconstructions can be helpful. US is excellent for assessment of the uterus, ovaries, and adnexa. Occasionally, nongynecologic pelvic diseases arising from the gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and musculoskeletal systems and the pelvic peritoneal and extraperitoneal spaces may be detected and can be a source of diagnostic dilemma...

Actinomycosis is a form of painful abscess in the gastrointestinal tract or in deep tissue caused by actinomyces species. They are one of the commensal bacteria in the oral cavity and gastrointestinal tract of humans but can opportunistically cause infection in immunosuppressive hosts through invasion of breached mucosa or necrotic tissue while mimicking malignancy, gastrointestinal tuberculosis, and inflammatory bowel disease. Actinomyces israelii is, by far, the major and most common human pathogen throughout literatures...

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are diseases characterized by various degrees of inflammation involving the gastrointestinal tract. Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease are characterized by a dysregulated immune response leading to structural gut alterations in genetically predisposed individuals. Diverticular disease is characterized by abnormal immune response to normal gut microbiota. IBDs are linked to a lack of physiological tolerance of the mucosal immune system to resident gut microbiota and pathogens...

Chronic colitis, regardless of type, is defined histologically by chronic inflammation, mainly plasmacytosis, in the lamina propria. Specific diagnosis of chronic colitides in biopsies can be challenging for practicing pathologists. This article focuses on discussing specific histologic features in biopsies of the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), including ulcerative colitis, Crohn colitis, and colitis of indeterminate type. It also offers suggestions as to how to separate the IBDs from other chronic colitides, such as lymphocytic colitis, collagenous colitis, diverticular disease-associated colitis, diversion colitis, and chronic colitides that are due to drugs...

BACKGROUND: The aetiology of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) is multifactorial, and many risk factors are shared with diverticular disease. It is unknown whether an independent association exists between these conditions. METHODS: Individuals enrolled in two Danish population based randomised AAA screening trials and assigned to cross sectional screening and evaluation of cardiovascular risk factors were identified. Diagnoses of diverticular disease were interrogated from a national patient registry covering the period from 1977 to the screening date...
