cases have been due to deep venous thrombi or pulmonary embolic events.2 Some reports have discussed the diagnosis and treatment of venous thrombosis, but effective management of extensive arterial thrombosis associated with inflammatory bowel disease has not been previously described. We report the occurrence of bilateral lower extremity arterial thrombosis in a patient recently diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease. Circulation was restored with the transcatheter intrathrombic… 
Spontaneous Urethral Laceration in a Patient Experiencing Acute Ulcerative Colitis Flare
A novel case of spontaneous urethral laceration in a female which happened to occur during an acute flare of her previously diagnosed ulcerative colitis is presented.
New concepts in ulcerative colitis : A thin line between medicine and surgery
Evidence elaborated in this thesis support the idea that a defective function and interaction with gut flora in the appendix play an essential role in the aetiology and probably also in the onset of UC.
Systematic review: outcomes and post‐operative complications following colectomy for ulcerative colitis
The true burden of surgical complications is important to clinicians in assessing risks and benefits of colectomy vs. continued medical therapy.
Vasculitis leucocitoclásticas como manifestación extraintestinal dermatológica rara de la enfermedad inflamatoria intestinal asociada con Clostridium: reporte de un caso
A practical review of the pathophysiology, histology, treatment, and diagnosis of a rare dermatologic extraintestinal manifestation, namely, leukocytoclastic vasculitis, in patients with C. difficile–associated ulcerative colitis is reviewed.

A systematic review and meta‐analysis of outcomes after elective surgery for ulcerative colitis
The aim of this systematic review and meta‐analysis is to summarize the outcomes after elective surgery for UC.

Postoperative diagnostic revision for Crohn disease after subtotal colectomy for inflammatory bowel disease
Attention must be paid to determine the right restorative strategy to patients with an evolution of the disease less than 10 years or with IBDU who are more at risk to have a diagnosis change to CD after STC.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)—A Textbook Case for Multi-Centric Banking of Human Biological Materials
The approach of well-thought off, multi-centric, structured, and systematic biobanking has proven to be a success-story and thus a textbook case formulti-centric banking of human biological materials.


Microscopic colitis
Sufficient evidence exists to suggest that microscopic colitis occurs as a response to one or more luminal antigens, and only colloidal bismuth and budesonide have thus far been shown to be effective in randomized controlled trials.
Correlation of C‐Reactive Protein With Clinical, Endoscopic, Histologic, and Radiographic Activity in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
CRP elevation in IBD patients is associated with clinical disease activity, endoscopic inflammation, severely active histologic inflammation (in CD patients), and several other biomarkers of inflammation, but not with radiographic activity.
Pharmacological aspects of therapy in inflammatory bowel diseases: antidiarrheal agents.
New directions for the development of more effective therapeutic approaches are commented on and the mechanism of action of antidiarrheal drugs is discussed, with emphasis on synthetic opiates.
Changes in extent of ulcerative colitis: a study on the course and prognostic factors.
Multivariate regression analysis showed that the occurrence of the symptoms abdominal pain and diarrhoea was prognostically unfavourable with regard to the progression from proctosigmoiditis and should be considered the same disease as UC and needs the same long-term follow-up.
Systematic review: adherence issues in the treatment of ulcerative colitis

First‐line therapy for ulcerative colitis is 5‐aminosalicylic acid, which suffers from poor patient adherence outside the clinical trial setting.
Medical management of left‐sided ulcerative colitis and ulcerative proctitis: Critical evaluation of therapeutic trials
This critical evaluation of treatment provides a “report card“ on medications available for the management of patients with UP and L‐UC and should provide a useful reference and supplement for physicians treating UC patients.

The Epidemiology of Colectomy in Ulcerative Colitis: Results From a Population-Based Cohort
The cumulative incidence of colectomy in UC is lower than previously reported, and appears to be decreasing further among more recently diagnosed cohorts of patients.
Noninvasive methods in evaluation of inflammatory bowel disease: where do we stand now? An update
Fecal lactoferrin and calprotectin tests seem to be one step further from other tests with larger number of studies, higher sensitivity and specificity and wider availability.
