Endoscopic stricturotomy is a novel technique in the treatment of anastomotic strictures in Crohn's disease (CD). The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of patients with ileocolonic anastomotic stricture treated with endoscopic stricturotomy (ESt) versus ileocolonic resection (ICR).

Name: Gastrointestinal endoscopy
It is standard of care to perform ileocolonoscopy within a year of ileocolonic resection for Crohn's disease (CD) and to guide management decisions based on the Rutgeert score (RS). The modified RS su...
To assess the outcome of patients undergoing repeated ileocolonic resection for recurrent Crohn's disease (CD) METHOD: All patients undergoing ileocolonic resection for terminal ileal CD between 1998 ...
Anastomotic leakage is a frequent complication after gastrointestinal (GI) surgery and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Endoluminal therapy offers numerous advantages compared to surgi...
Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) has been shown to predict relapse in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but its value in the detection of postoperative recurrence in Crohn's disease (CD) is unknown...
Anastomotic leakage is still one of the most dreaded complications after anterior resection for rectal cancer. This study aimed to identify risk factors for anastomotic leakage and to create a nomogra...
Crohn's patients receiving ileocolonic resection are randomized into extensive mesenteric resection group and local mesenteric resection group.
A randomized, placebo-controlled pilot study to determine endoscopic recurrence of Crohn's disease 12 months after curative, resective ileal or ileocolonic surgery in patients receiving po...
This is a pilot study that will determine the endoscopic recurrence of Crohn's disease 12 months after curative, resective ileal or ileocolonic surgery in patients receiving post-operative...
Anastomotic leak (AL) is a breakdown of a suture line in a surgical anastomosis with a subsequent leakage of the luminal content. Anastomotic leakage occurs commonly in rectal and esophage...
This is a prospective randomized trial that aimed to compare the short-term clinical outcomes and systemic inflammatory/cytokine responses of endoscopic submucosal dissection versus laparo...
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
A method for removing lesions from gastrointestinal MUCOUS MEMBRANES. The mucosal tissue with the lesion is elevated by injecting a solution into the submucosal layer underneath it. The elevated tissue with the lesion is then cut out.
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
A specialized form of transanal endoscopic surgery for microscopically controlled operations in the RECTUM.
Conducting a fine needle biopsy with the aid of ENDOSCOPIC ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

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...
