Perforation of the intestine in inflammatory bowel disease an omge survey




, : Perforation of the intestine in inflammatory bowel disease an omge survey. Scandinavian Journal Of Gastroenterology Supplement4: 24-26

This presentation assesses the incidence of perforation of the intestine in patients with inflammatory bowel disease by reviewing the incidence of this complication in a total of 3175 patients from the OMGE inflammatory bowel disease multi-national survey. Among 1928 patients with ulcerative colitis, perforation was noted in only 5 (0.3%), which is much lower than in previous series (from 1% to 2%). By contrast, 19 of 1247 patients with Crohn's disease had perforated (1.5%). The survey thus suggests that the incidence of perforation in ulcerative colitis has fallen in the last 2 decades, probably as a result of the widespread implementation of early surgery. The risk of perforation of Crohn's disease remains quite high.

A case control study of selenium in cancer: As selenium has been shown to be a risk modifier of cancer at several sites in a case-control approach, selenium nutriture was studied in oral and oesophageal cancer patients. The mean selenium level in oral cancer patients was 102.6 ng/ml and in...

New alpha santalene and labdane derivatives from ayapana amygdalina: While the roots of A. amygdalina contain typical euparine derivatives, the aerial parts afforded in addition to known compounds 2 new .alpha.-santalene derivatives as well as 12 new labdane derivatives with a partly unusual oxidation pattern, 2 be...

Diagnosis and Management of Hereditary Angioedema An Emergency Medicine Perspective: Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare and often debilitating condition associated with substantial morbidity and mortality in the absence of appropriate intervention. An underlying deficiency in functional C1-inhibitor (C1-INH) protein induces a v...

Handle with care: targeting neutrophils in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and severe asthma?: Neutrophils play an important role in the pathogenesis of airway inflammation in both chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and severe asthma. Currently available drugs have only limited effects on neutrophilic airway inflammation, particul...

PCB congeners and hexachlorobenzene biota sediment accumulation factors for Macoma nasuta exposed to sediments with different total organic carbon contents: Deposit-feeding marine clams (Macoma nasuta) were exposed for 119 d to three sediment types that varied in total organic carbon (TOC) from 0.8 to 2.5%. Sediments were spiked with equal concentrations of 13 polychlorinated biphenyl congeners and he...

Comparative studies on the in vivo and in vitro assessment of bulk forages digestibility: The in vivo and in vitro digestibilities of barley silage, Sudan grass (Sorghum sudanense) silage, lucerne hay and Sudan grass hay were investigated using 5 rams. It was shown that feed intake was 616.2-933.5, 825.4-943.2, 1277.3-1426 and 1382.6-1...

Genetic variation in pupation height in a population of drosophila simulans: Preadult mortality of Drosophila simulans in the laboratory is influenced by larval behavior during pupation site choice. The possibility that larvae select a suitable place to pupate may have profound repercussions on their darwinian fitnesses. T...

Increased frequency of specific locus mutation following human cytomegalovirus infection: The effect of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection on the frequency of mutations at the hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyl transferase (hprt) locus was studied in Chinese hamster lung V79 cells. When V79 cells were infected with HCMV (strain AD...
