    • 2. Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Overview
      • The term inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) covers a group of disorders in which the intestines become inflamed due to unknown factors.
      • Two major types of IBD are described: ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD), also known as granulomatous colitis .
      • The two entities are different from each other and do not occur together in the same patient.
      • Both entities are characterized by remissions and exacerbations.
      • When there is severe inflammation, the disease is considered to be in an active stage.
      • When the degree of inflammation is less (or absent), the person is often without symptoms.
    • 3. Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Ulcerative Colitis
      • Ulcerative colitis is limited to the large intestine.
      • The rectum is almost always involved (proctitis), but it may involve rectum and sigmoid (proctosigmoiditis) or the entire colon and rectum (full-blown proctocolitis).
      • There are usually no “skip” areas.
      Tiny ulcers
    • 4. Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Crohn’s Disease
      • Crohn’s disease can involve any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus, but it most commonly affects the small intestine and/or the colon, often with “skip” areas.

    • 5. Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Causes
      • Researchers do not yet know what causes inflammatory bowel disease. Therefore, IBD is called an idiopathic disease.
      • An unknown factor/agent (or a combination of factors) triggers the body’s immune system to produce an inflammatory reaction in the intestinal tract that continues without control.
      • As a result of the inflammatory reaction, the intestinal wall is damaged, leading to bloody diarrhea and abdominal pain .
    • 6. Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Symptoms
      • Symptoms may range from mild to severe and generally depend upon the part of the intestinal tract involved. They include the following:
        • Abdominal cramps and pain
        • Severe urgency to have a bowel movement
        • Bloody diarrhea
        • Anemia (due to blood loss)
        • Loss of appetite
        • Weight loss
    • 7. Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Complications
      • Intestinal complications of inflammatory bowel disease include the following:
        • Profuse bleeding from the ulcers.
        • Perforation (rupture) of the bowel.
        • Strictures and obstruction.
          • In Crohn’s disease, strictures often are inflammatory and frequently resolve with medical treatment.
          • In ulcerative colitis, colonic strictures should be presumed to be malignant .
        • Fistulae and perianal disease.
          • These are more common in Crohn’s disease.
          • They may not respond to medical treatment.
          • Surgical intervention often is required, and there is a high risk of recurrence.
    • 8. Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Complications
        • Toxic megacolon (acute non-obstructive dilation of the colon):
          • This is a life-threatening complication of  ulcerative colitis  and requires urgent surgical intervention.
        • Malignancy:
          • The risk of colon cancer in ulcerative colitis begins to rise significantly above that of the general population after approximately 8-10 years of diagnosis.
          • The risk of cancer in Crohn’s disease may equal that of ulcerative colitis if the entire colon is involved.
          • The risk of small intestine malignancy is increased in Crohn’s disease.
    • 9. Surgery
      • Surgical treatment in persons with inflammatory bowel disease varies, depending upon the disease.
      • Ulcerative colitis is a surgically curable disease because the disease is limited to the colon.
      • Surgical resection is not curative in persons with Crohn’s disease and is used to treat complications of the disease.
      • Excessive surgical intervention in persons with Crohn’s disease can lead to more problems.
    • 10. Surgery – Ulcerative Colitis
      • Ulcerative colitis:
        • In about 25-30% of persons with ulcerative colitis, medical treatment is not completely successful.
        • In such persons and in persons with dysplasia, surgery may be considered.
        • Options:
          • First option: removal of the entire colon and rectum (proctocolectomy) with the creation of an ileostomy.
          • Second option: removal of the colon, creation of an internal ileal pouch (from the small intestine) with attachment to the anal sphincter muscle (ileoanal anastomosis), and creation of a temporary ileostomy. After the ileoanal anastomosis heals, the ileostomy is closed; and passage of feces through the anus is reestablished.
    • 11. Surgery – Crohn’s Disease
      • Crohn’s Disease—
        • Even though surgery is not curative in Crohn’s disease, approximately 75% of patients will require surgery at some point in time for complications.
        • Options:
          • The most simple surgery for Crohn’s disease is segmental resection of the involved segment.
          • Ileorectal or ileocolic anastomosis is an option in some persons who have lower small intestine or upper colonic disease.
          • In patients with severe perianal fistulae, diverting ileostomy/colostomy is a surgical option.
