PURPOSE: To date there exists no published study examining the safety and efficacy of the EndoWrist 45 (Intuitive Surgical, Inc.) robotic stapler. We compared outcomes between the robotic and comparable laparoscopic stapler in robotic-assisted colorectal procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of 93 patients who underwent robotic-assisted colorectal surgery at our institution from 2012 to 2014. Surgeries included left, sigmoid, subtotal and total colectomies, and low anterior rectal resections...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohn disease (CD) can be challenging given the overlapping features. Knowledge of microRNAs in IBD has expanded recently and supports that microRNAs play an important role. This study aimed to identify novel microRNA biomarkers through comprehensive genome-wide sequencing to distinguish UC from CD. DESIGN: Illumina next generation sequencing was performed on nondysplastic fresh-frozen colonic mucosa of the distal-most colectomy from 19 patients (10 UC and 9 CD) and 18 patients with diverticular disease serving as controls...

PURPOSE: To compare clinical features, computed tomography (CT) findings, and outcomes of right vs. left colonic diverticulitis (CD) in Caucasians. METHODS: This single-center retrospective case-control study of patients seen between July 2005 and February 2013 included 30 consecutive cases of right CD and 70 controls taken at random from a consecutive cohort of patients with left CD. The final diagnosis was established by consensus between a gastrointestinal surgeon and a gastrointestinal radiologist...

AIM: Acute diverticulitis is a frequent disease in the Western Countries. The increase number of patients admitted in the Surgery Departments led the necessity of new Scores and Classifications in order to clarify, in absence of clear guidelines, the best treatments to offer in the different situations. METHODS: A retrospective study of ninety-nine patients treated in our Department from June 2010 and March 2015. RESULTS: In our study 41 patients were treated conservatively, the remaining 58 were operated, 56 laparotomic and 2 laparoscopic...

BACKGROUND: Diverticular disease of the colon also affects older people. Generally, older patients with diverticulitis may be regarded as too risky to undergo surgery. This retroprospective multicentric observational study aims to assess the safety and benefits of laparoscopic peritoneal lavage (LPL) in elderly patients with perforated sigmoid diverticulitis. PATIENTS AND METHOD: We hospitalized in urgency 100 patients, aged over 75, for sigmoid diverticulitis. Sixty-nine patients were treated with conservative medical therapy, while 31 were treated surgically, in which the surgery was performed in urgency in 18 cases, while in election in 13 cases...

The aim of this narrative review is to define the clinical-pathological characteristics and to clarify the management of right colonic diverticular disease. It is rare in Europe, USA and Australia and more common in Asia. In the recent years its incidence has increased in the West, with various distributions among populations. Many studies have reported that it is difficult to differentiate the presenting symptoms of this disease from those of appendicitis before surgery, because the signs and symptoms are similar, so misdiagnosis is not infrequent...

Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is estimated to affect 1%-2% of the general population, and it represents a clinically silent finding of a congenital anomaly in up to 85% of the cases. In adults, MD may cause symptoms, such as overt occult lower gastrointestinal bleeding. The diagnostic imaging workup includes computed tomography scan, magnetic resonance imaging enterography, technetium 99m scintigraphy (99mTc) using either labeled red blood cells or pertechnetate (known as the Meckel's scan) and angiography. The preoperative detection rate of MD in adults is low, and many patients ultimately undergo exploratory laparoscopy...

REVIEW
Sreedhar Subramanian, Anders Ekbom, Jonathan M Rhodes
The genetics of isolated colonic Crohn's disease place it approximately midway between Crohn's disease with small intestinal involvement and UC, making a case for considering it as a separate condition. We have therefore systematically reviewed its epidemiology, pathophysiology and treatment. Key findings include a higher incidence in females (65%) and older average age at presentation than Crohn's disease at other sites, a mucosa-associated microbiota between that found in ileal Crohn's disease and UC, no response to mesalazine, but possibly better response to antitumour necrosis factor than Crohn's disease at other sites...

Severe gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) secondary to jejunal diverticulosis (JD) is very rare. Delay in establishing a diagnosis is common and GIB from JD is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We report an illustrative case diagnosed by push enteroscopy and managed with surgery.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The composition of activated adipose tissue with adipocytes secreting a broad spectrum of immune-modulatory adipokines next to adipose tissue-derived stromal cells and professional immune effector cells in the visceral fat creates a complex network of inflammatory processes shaping local immune responses in the adjacent inflamed intestinal mucosa. RECENT FINDINGS: In Crohn's disease a particular phenomenon called 'creeping fat' can be observed...

ADPKD is a systemic disorder, associated with numerous extrarenal manifestations, including polycystic liver disease (PCLD) and other gastrointestinal manifestations, as well as pancreatic cysts, diverticular disease, inguinal and ventral hernias which play a significant role in disease burden, particularly in the advanced stage of ADPKD. In most cases the natural history of ADPKD goes through a long period of stability followed by a progressive decline in renal function. The coexistence of hypertension, cyst infections and nephrolithiasis can influence and accelerate the progression of kidney failure...

Adult necrotising enterocolitis secondary Clostridium perfringens type C-pig-bel disease-is rarely seen outside of Pacific populations, with the highest incidence being in Papau New Guinea. We present the first reported case of pig-bel disease in a previously well patient without diabetes following food poisoning since 1996. In this case, the enterotoxin-induced disease necessitated emergency laparotomy and bowel resection following the failure of medical treatment and worsening septic shock. We hypothesise that obstruction secondary to a sigmoid diverticular stricture complicated by infection-related oedema led to colonic stasis and rapid progression of disease and bowel loss...

Urethral diverticular clear cell adenocarcinoma in a female patient is extremely rare. This tumor sometimes displays a characteristic image on magnetic resonance imaging, surrounding the urethra like the prostate does in men. We report a patient with this tumor who underwent cystourethrectomy and ileal conduit diversion. We think that imaging studies could be useful to make the appropriate diagnosis.

INTRODUCTION: There is an association between obesity and more complicated diverticular disease. We hypothesize that this link may be due to an increased level of visceral fat rather than an elevated body mass index alone. Adipose tissue secretes inflammatory cytokines, and chronic inflammation may account for the link between obesity and a more severe presentation of diverticular disease. We have applied a quantitative measure of visceral fat content in a series of patients admitted with diverticulitis, comparing those who required emergent versus elective surgical procedures for diverticulitis...

The term constipation with regard to patients with a stoma is defined as impaired bowel movements associated with increased stool consistency or long periods without bowel movements that lead to discomfort, flatulence, and abdominal pain. Information about constipation in patients with a stoma is limited. A prospective, descriptive study was conducted among patients attending ostomy and proctology outpatient clinics in Poznan, Poland between January 2011 and December 2014 to assess the role of dietary and pharmacological strategies in the management of constipation in patients with a stoma...
