Introduction Follow-up of patients resected for Crohn’s disease (CD) have shown that in the absence of treatment, the post-operative recurrence rate is 70–90% within one year of the operation and 83–100% within 3 years. Prophylactic medication and disease monitoring has been proven to decrease the rate of clinical and endoscopic recurrence. Method We aimed to examine current practices in our large tertiary referral centre on postoperative prescriptions of disease modifying therapy for CD. We per...

Introduction Follow-up of patients resected for ileal Crohn’s disease have shown that, in the absence of treatment, the post-operative recurrence rate is 70–90% within one year of the operation and 83–100% within 3 years. Prophylactic medication and disease monitoring has been proven to decrease the rate of clinical and endoscopic recurrence. Method We performed a retrospective analysis by interrogating the pathology database over a five year period from 2009 to 2013 to identify cases and data w...

Introduction Up to 70% of patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) may require surgery at some point in their lives and 39% may require several surgeries. Repeated resections put patients at risk of greater morbidity including short gut syndrome and intestinal failure. Method We aimed to examine the demographic and clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients requiring repeated resections for CD. We performed a retrospective analysis by interrogating the pathology database over a five year period...

Introduction Up to 70% of patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) may require surgery at some point in their lives and it is estimated 39% may require several surgeries. Indications for surgery include failure of medical treatment, bowel obstruction, fistula or abscesss formation. The most common surgical procedure is resection. Smoking is a recognised risk factor for requiring surgery in Crohn’s and also predicts post-operative recurrence. Method We aimed to examine the effect of tobacco smoking on ...
