How I Do It: Side-to-Side Isoperistaltic Strictureplasty for Extensive Crohn's Disease.
Summary of "How I Do It: Side-to-Side Isoperistaltic Strictureplasty for Extensive Crohn's Disease."
Bowel-sparing surgical techniques, such as the Heineke-Mikulicz and the Finney strictureplasty, have been proposed as an alternative to lengthy intestinal resection in the treatment of small bowel strictures in Crohn's disease. However, these conventional strictureplasty techniques lend themselves poorly to cases of multiple short strictures closely clustered over a lengthy small bowel segment.
In this article, we present the surgical technique of the side-to-side isoperistaltic strictureplasty, which is optimal in addressing these specific situations.

Crohn disease of the vulva is a rare disease that is difficult to diagnose. There are limited reports describing treatment of this condition.
In the limited number of Crohn disease cases involving the head and neck, there is a predilection for mucosal surfaces and rare reports of involvement in the postauricular region. To our knowledge, in...
The surgical management of the complications of Crohn disease is often challenging. These difficulties are compounded in pregnancy by competing interests of the mother and the baby. In this report, we...
Genetic variations in the autophagic pathway influence genetic predispositions to Crohn disease. Autophagy, the major lysosomal pathway for degrading and recycling cytoplasmic material, constitutes an...
We have studied the hydrophobicity of amino acid side chains by computing conditional solvation free energies that account for effects of the peptide backbone on the side chains' solvent environment. ...
The investigators will select 60 people who are 18-70 years of age with Crohn's disease and randomly assign them to receive an 8-week trial of celecoxib and an 8-week trial of a placebo. ...
The purpose of this study will permit to determine the role of FDG PET/CT to diagnose Crohn Disease and recurrence of Crohn disease after having compared results of PET/CT's with results o...
Patients with moderately to severely active Crohn's disease will be treated with oral CP-461 200 mg (2 x 100 mg capsules) twice-daily for 8 weeks. The purpose of this study is to see if C...
Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the gastrointestinal tract. The origin of Crohn's disease remains unknown and there is no curative therapy, either medical or surgica...
The objectives of this study were to assess the safety and tolerability of LDP-02 in patients with active Crohn's disease who were not receiving corticosteroids or immunosuppressives, to a...

Surgical union or shunt between ducts, tubes or vessels. It may be end-to-end, end-to-side, side-to-end, or side-to-side.
The projecting part on each side of the body, formed by the side of the pelvis and the top portion of the femur.
The most posterior teeth on either side of the jaw, totaling eight in the deciduous dentition (2 on each side, upper and lower), and usually 12 in the permanent dentition (three on each side, upper and lower). They are grinding teeth, having large crowns and broad chewing surfaces. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p821)
A chronic transmural inflammation that may involve any part of the DIGESTIVE TRACT from MOUTH to ANUS, mostly found in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the COLON. In Crohn disease, the inflammation, extending through the intestinal wall from the MUCOSA to the serosa, is characteristically asymmetric and segmental. Epithelioid GRANULOMAS may be seen in some patients.
A condition characterized by persistent or recurrent labial enlargement, ORAL ULCER, and other orofacial manifestations in the absence of identifiable CROHN DISEASE; or SARCOIDOSIS. There is no consensus on whether orofacial granulomatosis is a distinct clinical disorder or an initial presentation of Crohn disease.
