Diverticulosis, its associated symptoms and complications are one of the most common pathologies of the gastrointestinal tract in more economically developed countries. Presence of diverticuli and their clinical consequences can be divided into four categories: 1) diverticulosis, i.e. an asymptomatic presence of diverticuli that are usually found by accident 2) symptomatic uncomplicated diverticulosis 3) diverticulitis (acute uncomplicated diverticulitis) 4) complications of diverticulitis (conditions requiring hospital stay)...

PURPOSE: Addressing the problem of proctologic sequelae after Scopinaro's classical BPD, we elongated the common limb from 50 to 200 cm at the expense of the alimentary limb and simultaneously, with the aim of avoiding weight regain, reduced the gastric pouch from 500 to 40 ml. After increased experience with the new procedure, we observed a favourable tendency towards further weight loss. Thus, we subsequently extended the indication to the procedure to patients with unsatisfactory weight loss after Scopinaro's classical BPD (SBPD)...

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...

PURPOSE: The assessment of bowel habit is important in the management of patients with colorectal disease. There is not an ideal and practical bowel habit scoring system. The current scores have been designed only for a subclass of patients having a particular disorder. Furthemore, they are complex and time consuming. We propose a simple score to quickly assess the bowel function in all patients with proctological disorders. METHODS: We developed a bowel habit scoring system including three parameters: bowel frequency, stool consistency, and urgency...

For several decades, treating patients with pacemakers has been the privilege of cardiologists. However, in the last 30 years, researchers have found new targets for electrical stimulation in different clinical subspecialities, such as deep brain stimulation (for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, and some psychiatric illnesses); spinal cord stimulation (for refractory angina, chronic pain, and peripheral artery disease); and sacral (for diverse urologic and proctologic conditions), vagal (for epilepsy), and phrenic nerve stimulation (for sleep apnoea)...

Hemorrhoids are a common medical problem that is often considered as benign. The French Society of Colo-Proctology (Société nationale française de colo-proctologie [SNFCP]) recently revised its recommendations for the management of hemorrhoids (last issued in 2001), based on the literature and consensual expert opinion. We present a short report of these recommendations. Briefly, medical treatment, including dietary fiber, should always be proposed in first intention and instrumental treatment only if medical treatment fails, except in grade ≥III prolapse...

REVIEW
Alexander Kreuter
Proctology is a medical subspecialty that encompasses diseases of the perianal region, anal canal, and rectum. Dermatologists play a pivotal role in this realm, as inflammatory perianal disorders, infectious and sexually transmitted diseases, as well as perianal tumors and their precursor lesions fall within the core competency of dermatology. In a concise manner, the present article highlights all relevant disease groups in the field of proctology. With a particular focus on aspects pertinent to dermatologists, this includes inflammatory disorders, "classic" proctologic diseases, sexually transmitted diseases, malignancies of the anal region, as well as pathogen-induced diseases...

BACKGROUND: Repositioning sedated or anesthetized patients between colonoscopy and further surgical procedures is potentially unsafe and time consuming. We aim to show that colonoscopy performed in the modified lithotomy position offers surgical, anesthetic, and patient advantage. METHODS: Patients presenting for colonoscopy and a synchronous surgical procedure between May 2013 and August 2014 were prospectively included. Colonoscopy duration, cecal intubation rate (CIR), terminal ileum intubation rate, and patient characteristics were recorded...
