Endoscopic evaluation, particularly the macroscopic mucosal and histological results of ileocolic biopsies, is essential for the management of inflammatory bowel disease. Endoscopic appearance is not always sufficient to differentiate Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, but there are some characteristics that favor one or another diagnosis. Both diseases have an increased incidence of colorectal carcinoma; so, surveillance colonoscopy is important for detecting early neoplastic lesions.

Prior studies suggest that colonoscopy may exacerbate inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) symptoms. Thus, our study aimed to determine risk of emergency room (ER) visits associated with colonoscopy among...
We evaluated the impact of variations in ATG16L1 and NOD2 and genes on serologic responses in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Colonoscopy with terminal ileal (TI) intubation is an important diagnostic and therapeutic tool in the care of children with digestive diseases, especially in those with inflammatory bowel disease (IB...
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are a group of heterogeneous inflammatory conditions affecting the gastrointestinal tract. Although there is considerable evidence linking the gut microbiota to inte...
An association between inﬂammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and increased susceptibility to sexual dysfunction (SD) was reported in a number of studies.
Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) frequently undergo endoscopic examination and may suffer from diagnostic procedures. Independent from IBD patients, colonoscopy is usually pe...
National multicentric observatory of low bowel preparations in patients with IBD
Spondyloarthritis and inflammatory bowel diseases are common diseases, frequently met together in overlap syndromes. Their physiopathology remains puzzling. A strong role of gut microbiota...
Mesalazine, steroid, immunosuppressants and biologic agents are main medical treatments in treating inflammatory bowel diseases. Yet some patients develop severe side effects or initial in...
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacious dose range when used as a bowel preparation before colonoscopy.
A species of Faecalbacterium, previously classified in the FUSOBACTERIUM genus, that is a major constituent of the GUT MICROBIOTA in healthy humans. It has anti-inflammatory activity and reduced numbers of this species occur in patients with INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASES such as CROHN DISEASE.
Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
A drug that is used in the management of inflammatory bowel diseases. Its activity is generally considered to lie in its metabolic breakdown product, 5-aminosalicylic acid (see MESALAMINE) released in the colon. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p907)
Surgical creation of an external opening into the ILEUM for fecal diversion or drainage. This replacement for the RECTUM is usually created in patients with severe INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASES. Loop (continent) or tube (incontinent) procedures are most often employed.
A gamma-emitting radionuclide imaging agent used in the evaluation of regional cerebral blood flow and in non-invasive dynamic biodistribution studies and myocardial imaging. It has also been used to label leukocytes in the investigation of inflammatory bowel diseases.
Crohn's Disease (CD)
Crohn’s disease (CD) is a long-term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system. Inflammation can affect any part of the digestive system, from the mouth to the back passage, but most commonly occurs in the last s...
