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.
