Interactive video presentation 3 - Postoperative IUS - Your diagnosis?8th ECCO Ultrasound Workshop - Advanced in collaboration with ESGAR
Year: 2021
Authors: Mariangela Allocca
Summary content

Crohn’s disease is a chronic progressive inflammatory disease of the gastro-intestinal tract that may lead to bowel damage and disability. Half of patients will require surgery within ten years of diagnosis. Unfortunately, surgery is not curative, endoscopic recurrence is reported in 80% of patients within one year of diagnosis, and predicts clinical and surgical recurrence. The prevention of post-surgical recurrence is a critical target in the care of Crohn’s disease after surgery. Currently, postsurgical management and treatment of Crohn’s disease are based on endoscopic monitoring performed during the first year after surgery. However, colonoscopy is an invasive and expensive procedure, unpleasant to patients. Bowel ultrasound is a cheap, non-invasive, readily-available tool for the assessment and the monitoring of patients with inflammatory bowel disease, especially patients with Crohn’s disease. This presentation aims to review the evidence for the use of bowel ultrasound in the specific setting of postsurgical recurrence in Crohn’s disease; the diagnostic accuracy of bowel ultrasound in the detection of postsurgical recurrence in alternative to colonoscopy; its predictive value for clinical and surgical recurrence.

Intestinal adenocarcinoma in IBD6th H-ECCO IBD Masterclass
Year: 2021
Authors: Magali Svrcek
Summary content

Compared to the general population, patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer. Chronic inflammation is believed to promote the development of neoplasia. Adenocarcinoma complicating UC and CD develops from a precursor lesion, dysplasia. Dysplasia complicating IBD is very variable macroscopically and histologically and is often multifocal. Besides conventional dysplasia in patients with IBD, nonconventional dysplasia are described. Three recent publications allow us to better define these new nonconventional types of dysplasia, from a clinical, morphological and molecular point of view, as well as nonconventional mucosal lesions in patients with IBD. Crohn’s disease (CD) is associated with an increased risk of small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA). Research papers dedicated to small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA) in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) are scarce. (Yet, several advances have been accomplished in epidemiology, natural history and characteristics of SBA, in patients with CD). Several recent publications help us to better understand this entity.

Medication in the pipeline19th IBD Intensive Course for Trainees
Year: 2021
Authors: Laurent Peyrin-Biroulet
Summary content

Numerous small molecules and biologics are being tested in phase 1-3 trials. Regarding JAK inihibitors, we still do not know whether JAK selectivity is associated with an improved risk-benefit profile, especially regading zoster risk. TYK2, gut selective or not, look promising and also showed very encouraging results in psoriasis.  Other small molecules targeting integrins or PDE4 may be approbed in a near future. Regarding biologics and beyond biosimilars, many compounds are being developed such as Abivax. One question remains after 2 decades of biologics development : who will beat infliximab? Combination of biologics and bispecific antibodies might tackle this issue. Pending these molecules, many head to head trials are ongoing.

Summary content

Educational Objectives:

  1. Reminder: why nutrition in IBD?
  2. How to best deliver nutritional care in IBD: MDT
  3. Seeing this through the lens of an adult IBD dietitian
  4. Lessons learned from treating adults/elderly with IBD

Summary:

As PIBD specialists we are all aware of the importance and potential of nutritional therapy in IBD, but how is this best delivered?

This presentation, by a dietitian and physician, who are members of the Dietitians of ECCO (D-ECCO) committee, will include our views and experience with managing nutrition in IBD, through a multidisciplinary team. We will mention how to advocate and setup a successful team and highlight some specific settings where an MDT is especially critical, such as peri-surgical care. Lessons learned from treating the elderly IBD population, and the interesting parallels to paediatrics, will be discussed. Finally, we will explain why and how you should get your team involved in D-ECCO activities.
