IBD and Malignancies e-Coursee-Course
Year: 2016
Authors: Larry Egan, Loes Nissen, Gianluca Pellino, Franco Scaldaferri, Edyta Szymanska

This course is designed for gastroenterologists, surgeons, paediatricians, pathologists and other interdisciplinary medical experts interested in Inflammatory Bowel Disease(s) (IBD). One major aim of this e-learning activity is to increase competence and knowledge with regard to IBD and Malignancies and to harmonise diagnostics and treatment in order to improve patient outcomes.

This course will follow the following cases on:

  1. Colorectal cancer in IBD
  2. Lymphoma risk following immunosuppressive therapy with thiopurines in IBD patients - cancer and IBD
  3. Skin cancer in IBD
  4. Chemotherapy in chronically active ulcerative colitis

Upon completion of this activity learners will have gained knowledge on:

  • IBD and Solid Tumours
  • IBD and Haematological Malignancies
  • IBD and Skin Malignancies
  • Management of IBD patients with a past history of malignancy


Stricturing Crohn's Disease e-Coursee-Course
Year: 2016
Authors: Ren Mao, Jessica de Bruyn and Gianluca Pellino, Florian Rieder

This course is designed for gastroenterologists, surgeons, paediatricians, pathologists and other interdisciplinary medical experts interested in Inflammatory Bowel Disease(s) (IBD). One major aim of this e-learning activity is to increase competence and knowledge with regard to the prediction, diagnosis and management of stricturing Crohn's Disease (CD) patients and to harmonise diagnostics and treatment in order to improve patient outcomes.

Upon completion of this activity learners will:

  • Achieve familiarity with predictors of fibrostenosing CD.
  • Understand the role of cross-sectional imaging in the diagnostic work-up of patients with suspected fibrostenosing CD.
  • Understand the current management of fibrostenosing CD.
  • Recognise the therapeutic capabilities of anti-inflammatory therapy, endoscopic dilatation and surgery in the setting of fibrostenosing CD.

Surgery in Crohn's Disease e-Coursee-Course
Year: 2016
Authors: Monica Millan, Chaya Shwaartz, Triana Lobaton, Monica Millan

This course has been developed for gastroenterologists, surgeons, paediatricians, pathologists and other interdisciplinary medical experts interested in Inflammatory Bowel Disease(s) (IBD). One major aim of this e-learning activity is to increase competence and knowledge with regard to the management of CD patients and to harmonise indications and technical considerations for surgery in order to improve patient outcomes.

Upon completion of this activity learners will:

  • - Know how to identify surgical indications in patients with Crohn's Disease (CD)
  • - Be able to adequately treat different complications in CD patients that require surgery
  • - Be able to recommend appropriate changes in perioperative treatment and management

UC Update e-Coursee-Course

This course is designed for gastroenterologists, surgeons, paediatricians, pathologists and other interdisciplinary medical experts interested in Inflammatory Bowel Disease(s) (IBD). One major aim of this e-learning activity is to increase competence and knowledge with regard to the prediction, diagnosis and management of Ulcerative Colitis (UC) patients and to harmonise diagnostics and treatment in order to improve patient outcomes.

Upon completion of this activity learners will:

  • Have insights into the basic epidemiology of ulcerative colitis
  • Know current treatment options for severe ulcerative colitis, including colectomy
  • Be able to use ciclosporin correctly in severe ulcerative colitis
  • Understand when to order thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) activity when starting azathioprine

Everything you need to know about surgery16th N-ECCO Network Meeting
Year: 2022

IBD is team work6th Basic ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry
Year: 2022
Authors: Geert D'Haens; Willem Bemelman; Maria Louise de Jong - van der Zee
Summary content

IBD are chronic, life-long disorders associated with complex medical, surgical and psychosocial issues. Therefore, IBD clinics need to have a multidisciplinary team to discuss and strategize the most challenging cases. This will enhance quality of care and may reduce disease burden and morbidity. In this session, the IBD nurse practitioner, gastroenterologist and colorectal surgeon will discuss two challenging cases where teamwork is essential.

Educational objectives
1. To have an overview of the multidisciplinay team
2. Basics fistulizing Crohn's disease and acute severe ulcerative colitis
3. To understand the multidisciplinary approach

Problems around the anus (Tandem talk)6th Basic ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry
Year: 2022
Authors: Antonino Spinelli; Silvio Danese
Summary content

Perianal manifestation in Crohn’s disease patients is likely to complicate the disease course with extra intestinal manifestations, abscesses, deep anal canal ulcers, luminal fistulas and strictures, steroid resistance, and need for multiple surgeries. Diagnosis and management of perianal Crohn’s disease implies a multidisciplinary team approach. Diagnosis and definition of perianal disease requires optimal imaging modality, ideally a pelvic magnetic resonance imaging, with an exam under anesthesia (EUA). However, the lack of a definition consensus on perianal fistula in Crohn’s disease may affect standardization of therapeutic approaches and patients inclusion within clinical trial.

The synergic approach by a surgeon and a gastroenterologist is crucial with perianal Crohn’s disease. Drainage of an abscess and possible seton placement to prevent future septic complications is the basic first step of the treatemnt. Ani-TNF drug have shown the best evidence for decreasing perianal drainage and promote fistula healing. Attempting surgical repair is possibile for selected patients. Surgical strategies include subcutaneous fistulotomy, Ligation of the Intersphincteric Tract (LIFT) procedure, or endorectal advancement flap (ERAF). These surgical strategies work best when associated with anti-TNF or immunomodulation and when mild to moderate proctitis is present. More aggressive interventions include diversion of the fecal stream with loop ileostomy and proctectomy; Mesenchymal stem cells have emerged as possible effective treatment and long term results have been demonstrated by randomized clinical trial.
