collitis ulcerative

Liliana Bordeianou, Lillias Maguire
INTRODUCTION: Management of medically refractory ulcerative collitis (UC) is a significant challenge to the surgeon. Operative morbidity is high and the potential for mortality remains. DISCUSSION: Medical therapies have the potential to meaningfully improve the patient, or may dangerously delay and complicate surgery. Operative planning must appropriately address the patient's acuity without losing sight of the patient's long-term need for definitive surgical care and adequate functional outcome...

There is an increased risk of developing colorectal neoplasia in ulcerative colitis (UC) and surveillance colonoscopy is recommended for early detection. We investigated the precise features of UC retrospectively to identify a subgroup with longstanding extensive UC at increased risk of neoplasia. From 1985 to August 1997, we experienced eight UC patients with colorectal cancer and eight with definite dysplasia. All 16 had extensive disease of seven years or more in duration. During the same period, 61 of 334 UC patients without colorectal neoplasia were available for detailed study, allowing evaluation of non-surgical patients with extensive colitis of seven years or more in duration...

This paper dealt with all patients who had visited their doctor in the gastroenterohepatologic (GEH) out-patient service in 1988. A total of 1716 and 2566 clinically subspecialistic gastroenterohepatologic and endoscopic surveys were made, respectively. Upper endoscopy was performed in 783 and lower endoscopy in 1783 patients. This paper was aimed at establishing the morbidity structure on one-year material from the patients visiting subspecialistic GEH service, whereby sex, age and frequency according to the kind of disease were taken into account...

In its early stages, Crohn's disease may be manifested as small aphthoid ulcers. Because these ulcers are small and shallow, they are difficult or impossible to demonstrate on conventional barium-filled studies of the gastrointestinal tract. Using double contrast techniques, we have been able to demonstrate these early lesions of Crohn's disease in the colon, small bowel, and stomach. The aphthoid ulcers produce a "bulls-eye" or "target" lesion consisting of a small central collection of barium surrounded by radiolucent halo due to the granulomatous inflammation...

We report a 12th case in which infection of the colon with cytomegalovirus was demonstrated in association with ulcerative collitis. Rectal biopsy has proven to be reliable in identifying cells with cytomegaloviral inclusion bodies if careful histologic evaluation is performed. Thus far, prognosis has been serious when cytomegalovirus of the colon has been documented in ulcerative colitis. Nine of 12 patients have required a colectomy, and only seven of 12 have survived.
