BACKGROUND: trocar site herniation is a rare but potentially serious complication of laparoscopic surgery. Data about drain site hernia after laparoscopic surgery is scarce and anecdotal. CASE PRESENTATION: we report an uncommon case of drain site hernia in a man undergone laparoscopic left colectomy for a colonic adenocarcinoma who developed small bowel herniation in a 10 mm port site, in which a 24 FR drain was inserted leaving a real free space of 2 mm. DISCUSSION: laparoscopic approach has gained widespread acceptance in each surgical fields because of the perceived better postoperative outcomes in terms of less pain, faster recovery, and lower risk of incisional hernia...

BACKGROUND: Colon cancer constitutes one of the most frequent malignancies. Previous studies showed that Salmonella manipulates host cell signaling pathways and that Salmonella Typhimurium infection facilitates colon cancer development in genetically predisposed mice. This epidemiological study examined whether severe Salmonella infection, usually acquired from contaminated food, is associated with increased colon cancer risk in humans. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We performed a nationwide registry-based study to assess colon cancer risk after diagnosed Salmonella infection...

REVIEW
J J Galligan
Tryptophan is an important dietary amino acid and it is the precursor for 5-hydroxytryptamine synthesis in the nervous system and by enterochromaffin cells in the gut mucosa. Tryptophan is also metabolized by enzymes in the gut mucosa and also by enzymes produced by the gut microbiome. Diet and the microbiome can contribute to metabolic disease in part by causing intestinal inflammation and increased permeability. In this issue of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, Jennis et al. test the hypothesis that indole tryptophan metabolites produced by gut bacteria might be responsible for the anti-inflammatory and beneficial metabolic effects of the gut microbiome and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery for weight loss by obese patients...

S Gaines, C Shao, N Hyman, J C Alverdy
BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of colorectal cancer recurrence after a curative resection remains poorly understood. A yet-to-be accounted for variable is the composition and function of the microbiome adjacent to the tumour and its influence on the margins of resection following surgery. METHODS: PubMed was searched for historical as well as current manuscripts dated between 1970 and 2017 using the following keywords: 'colorectal cancer recurrence', 'microbiome', 'anastomotic leak', 'anastomotic failure' and 'mechanical bowel preparation'...

Haiyang Zhou, Canping Ruan, Zhiguo Wang, Zhiqian Hu
BACKGROUND: Intersphincter resection (ISR) is considered to be a superior technique offering sphincter preservation in patients with ultralow rectal cancer.1 Because high-definition laparoscopy offers wider and clearer vision into the narrow pelvic cavity and intersphincteric space, ISR has been further refined.2 However, functional outcome after ISR has not been optimal. More than half of patients receiving ISR suffer partial or even complete anal incontinence.3 We therefore propose a laparoscopic-assisted modified ISR, with the aim of improving sphincter function following ISR...

Gastrointestinal histoplasmosis is common in patients with disseminated disease affecting both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. However, it is often unrecognized due to a lack of specific signs and symptoms. It has only rarely been reported to cause small bowel obstruction, during which surgical treatment was nearly always necessary. Little is known about the usefulness of endoscopic therapy in gastrointestinal histoplasmosis associated strictures. We report the case of a 32-year-old man with a history of hyperimmunoglobulin M syndrome who presented with small bowel obstruction secondary to disseminated gastrointestinal histoplasmosis...

BACKGROUND: Preliminary data suggest that treatment optimization can reverse immunogenicity and regain response in patients with IBD and secondary loss of response (SLR) to anti-TNF therapy due to antidrug antibodies. However, data regarding the long-term outcome of these patients are scarce. AIMS: We aimed to investigate drug retention in IBD patients of whom infliximab was optimized to overcome immunogenicity and variables associated with drug retention. METHODS: This was a retrospective, multicenter study of consecutive IBD patients with antibodies to infliximab (ATI), based on either proactive or reactive therapeutic drug monitoring, who underwent infliximab optimization (increasing dose, shortening interval, adding an immunomodulator, or combination) to overcome immunogenicity from September 2012 to July 2015; they were followed through December 2015...

Patient education programs (PEPs) to improve disease management are part of standard and regular treatment in adolescents with diabetes. In Germany, youth with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) receive individual counseling but not PEPs in group settings. Generic PEPs have been developed in order to improve transition from child-centered to adolescent health services. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of a transition-oriented PEP on quality of life (QoL) and self-management in young patients with IBD (PEP naive), compared to patients with diabetes (familiar with PEPs)...

Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) do not receive routine preventive care at the same rate as the general population. IBD places patients at increased risk for developing vaccine-preventable illnesses. This risk is further exacerbated by immunosuppressive therapy. This article highlights the necessary vaccinations for IBD patients and the timing of vaccination for immunosuppressed patients, and discusses the health maintenance needs and preventive care issues related to heart disease, smoking, osteoporosis, mental health, cervical cancer, and skin cancer...

Many studies have associated sleep alterations with the severity of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms, but the direct pathophysiological relationship has not been clarified. In addition, alterations in noradrenergic signaling have been implicated in the pathophysiology of IBS, and alpha2-adrenoceptors are potential treatment targets. We have previously shown that acceleration of gastrointestinal transit (GIT) elicited by intermittent rapid eye movement (REM) sleep deprivation stress may fulfill the profile of a model of IBS...

The main role of therapy in Crohn's disease is to achieve long-term clinical remission, and to allow for normal growth and development of children. The immunomodulatory drugs used for the maintenance of remission in Crohn's disease include thiopurines (azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine) and methotrexate. Development of hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma in some patients with inflammatory bowel disease, treated with thiopurines independently or in combination with anti-tumor necrosis factor agents, resulted in a growing interest in the therapeutic application of methotrexate in children suffering from Crohn's disease...

Microbiota contribute to many dimensions of host phenotype, including disease. To link specific microbes to specific phenotypes, microbiome-wide association studies compare microbial abundances between two groups of samples. Abundance differences, however, reflect not only direct associations with the phenotype, but also indirect effects due to microbial interactions. We found that microbial interactions could easily generate a large number of spurious associations that provide no mechanistic insight. Using techniques from statistical physics, we developed a method to remove indirect associations and applied it to the largest dataset on pediatric inflammatory bowel disease...
