- Anastomotic Configuration and Mucosal 5-Aminosalicylic Acid (5-ASA) Concentrations in Patients With Crohn's Disease: A GISC Study. Frieri, Giuseppe; Pimpo, M. T.; Palumbo, G.; Tonelli, F.; Annese, V.; Sturniolo, G. C.; Andreoli, A.; Comberlato, M.; Corrao, G.; Caprilli, R. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jun2000, Vol. 95 Issue 6, p1486
OBJECTIVE: Recurrence of Crohn's disease quite inevitably occurs after resection of distal small bowel and proximal colon, involving the neoterminal ileum close to the anastomosis. Oral 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) administered soon after surgery delays recurrence and reduces its severity. We...
- Reduced diversity of faecal microbiota in Crohn's disease revealed by a metagenomic approach. Manichanh, C.; Rigoltier-Gois, I.; Bonnaud, E.; Gloux, K.; Pelletier, E.; Frangeul, L.; Nalin, R.; Jarrin, C.; Chardon, P.; Marteau, P.; Roca, J.; Dore, J. // Gut;Feb2006, Vol. 55 Issue 2, p205
Background and aim: A role for the intestinal microbial community (microbiota) in the onset and chronicity of Crohn's disease (CD) is strongly suspected. However, investigation of such o complex ecosystem is difficult, even with culture independent molecular approaches. Methods: We used, for the...
- Radiologic appearance of recurrent ileal Crohn disease. Zalev, A. H.; Deitel, W.; Kundu, S.; Tomlinson, G. // Abdominal Imaging;Nov/Dec2005, Vol. 30 Issue 6, p665
Background: Postoperative recurrence of Crohn disease is a common problem. It has been assumed that the radiologic patterns are similar in de novo and recurrent ileal disease, but there has been little in the literature to actually confirm this belief. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the...

Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis (PCI) is a rare disorder of the medical management and clinical outcome of which largely depend on the severity of its clinical manifestation. A limited number of cases have been reported in the literature although it is suggested that the true incidence of...

- Sterile Epidural and Bilateral Psoas Abscesses in a Patient with Crohn's Disease. Lamport, R. D.; Cheskin, L. J.; Moscatello, S. A.; Nikoomanesh, P. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jul1994, Vol. 89 Issue 7, p1086
Crohn's disease primarily affects the distal gastrointestinal tract, yet it is a systemic disease that can involve nearly any organ. A psoas abscess complicating Crohn's disease is uncommon and usually originates from a fistulous communication with an adherent bowel. Spinal epidural abscess, an...
