A condition characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. This syndrome was first described in 1980 by Read and associates. Subtypes include COLLAGENOUS COLITIS and LYMPHOCYTIC COLITIS. Both have similar clinical symptoms and are distinguishable only by histology.
Long-chain polymer of glucose containing 17-20% sulfur. It has been used as an anticoagulant and also has been shown to inhibit the binding of HIV-1 to CD4-POSITIVE T-LYMPHOCYTES. It is commonly used as both an experimental and clinical laboratory reagent and has been investigated for use as an antiviral agent, in the treatment of hypolipidemia, and for the prevention of free radical damage, among other applications.
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show infiltration of LYMPHOCYTES in the superficial EPITHELIUM and the underlying connective tissue (lamina propria).
A chronic transmural inflammation that may involve any part of the DIGESTIVE TRACT from MOUTH to ANUS, mostly found in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the COLON. In Crohn disease, the inflammation, extending through the intestinal wall from the MUCOSA to the serosa, is characteristically asymmetric and segmental. Epithelioid GRANULOMAS may be seen in some patients.
Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Disease Models, Animal
An acute inflammation of the INTESTINAL MUCOSA that is characterized by the presence of pseudomembranes or plaques in the SMALL INTESTINE (pseudomembranous enteritis) and the LARGE INTESTINE (pseudomembranous colitis). It is commonly associated with antibiotic therapy and CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE colonization.
Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.
Live microbial DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS which beneficially affect the host animal by improving its intestinal microbial balance. Antibiotics and other related compounds are not included in this definition. In humans, lactobacilli are commonly used as probiotics, either as single species or in mixed culture with other bacteria. Other genera that have been used are bifidobacteria and streptococci. (J. Nutr. 1995;125:1401-12)
A cytokine produced by a variety of cell types, including T-LYMPHOCYTES; MONOCYTES; DENDRITIC CELLS; and EPITHELIAL CELLS that exerts a variety of effects on immunoregulation and INFLAMMATION. Interleukin-10 combines with itself to form a homodimeric molecule that is the biologically active form of the protein.
Non-antibody proteins secreted by inflammatory leukocytes and some non-leukocytic cells, that act as intercellular mediators. They differ from classical hormones in that they are produced by a number of tissue or cell types rather than by specialized glands. They generally act locally in a paracrine or autocrine rather than endocrine manner.
Anti-Inflammatory Agents, Non-Steroidal
Anti-inflammatory agents that are non-steroidal in nature. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions.They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects.
Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care. (Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
An EPITHELIUM with MUCUS-secreting cells, such as GOBLET CELLS. It forms the lining of many body cavities, such as the DIGESTIVE TRACT, the RESPIRATORY TRACT, and the reproductive tract. Mucosa, rich in blood and lymph vessels, comprises an inner epithelium, a middle layer (lamina propria) of loose CONNECTIVE TISSUE, and an outer layer (muscularis mucosae) of SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS that separates the mucosa from submucosa.
Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha
Serum glycoprotein produced by activated MACROPHAGES and other mammalian MONONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTES. It has necrotizing activity against tumor cell lines and increases ability to reject tumor transplants. Also known as TNF-alpha, it is only 30% homologous to TNF-beta (LYMPHOTOXIN), but they share TNF RECEPTORS.
The passage of viable bacteria from the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT to extra-intestinal sites, such as the mesenteric lymph node complex, liver, spleen, kidney, and blood. Factors that promote bacterial translocation include overgrowth with gram-negative enteric bacilli, impaired host immune defenses, and injury to the INTESTINAL MUCOSA resulting in increased intestinal permeability. Bacterial translocation from the lung to the circulation is also possible and sometimes accompanies MECHANICAL VENTILATION.
Historically, a heterogeneous group of acute and chronic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, progressive systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis, etc. This classification was based on the notion that "collagen" was equivalent to "connective tissue", but with the present recognition of the different types of collagen and the aggregates derived from them as distinct entities, the term "collagen diseases" now pertains exclusively to those inherited conditions in which the primary defect is at the gene level and affects collagen biosynthesis, post-translational modification, or extracellular processing directly. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1494)
A critical subpopulation of T-lymphocytes involved in the induction of most immunological functions. The HIV virus has selective tropism for the T4 cell which expresses the CD4 phenotypic marker, a receptor for HIV. In fact, the key element in the profound immunosuppression seen in HIV infection is the depletion of this subset of T-lymphocytes.
Severity of Illness Index
Ischaemic enterocolitis complicating idiopathic dysautonomia. (1/88)A previously fit 23 year old adult male who presented with a sudden onset of profound autonomic neuropathy, for which no cause could be found, is described. The patient subsequently developed ischaemic enterocolitis that ultimately necessitated colectomy and subtotal enterectomy. Potential neural and humoral mechanisms are discussed. (+info)
Can colonoscopy diagnose transmural ischaemic colitis after abdominal aortic surgery? An evidence-based approach. (2/88)OBJECTIVES: to assess the diagnostic value of colonoscopy in ischaemic colitis following abdominal aortic surgery, based on a literature review, and to introduce the concept of evidence-based medicine. METHOD: a review of the literature according to evidence-based principles was made by all doctors of our department. RESULTS: seven prospective non-randomised reports on routine colonoscopy after abdominal aortic surgery were found. None of the participants found all the reports, and the last was identified by the reviewer. CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopy may disclose ischaemic colitis, but cannot separate transmural from the clinically less important mucosal ischaemia. Endoscopy had no impact on mortality in any of the prospective series. The evidence-based conference was an inspiring teaching modality, and illustrated for the participants the difficulty in performing a targeted literature search. (+info)
Idiopathic enterocolic lymphocytic phlebitis: a rare cause of ischemic colitis. (3/88)We report on a 74-year-old female patient who was admitted to the hospital because of abdominal pain. She underwent a colonoscopy and a stenosing mass was found in the cecum. Histologic findings in the biopsy specimens were consistent with ischemic colitis. Due to clinical symptoms and the endoscopic and radiologic findings that roused the suspicion that the patient was suffering from a malignant tumor, a right hemicolectomy was performed. Histology of the resection specimen disclosed an inflammation of the veins. It was characterized by a predominantly lymphocytic infiltration of the vessels affecting the veins of the colonic wall and the mesentery. Furthermore, secondary thrombosis with focal venous occlusion was observed. The colon showed extensive ischemic colitis with focal transmural coagulation necrosis. The disease was considered to be idiopathic lymphocytic phlebitis, which is a rare disease of unknown origin. Our patient is well and alive after more than 1 year, supporting the notion that the disease shows a benign course after surgery. (+info)
Rare complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography: two case reports. (4/88)BACKGROUND: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a diagnostic procedure with several known risks. We present two rarely reported complications of ERCP and sphincterotomy: transverse mesocolon disruption with ischemic colitis and splenic rupture. RESULTS: The first patient, a 54-year-old female, presented one day following ERCP and stent revision for pancreas divisum. She presented with hypotension and abdominal distention. An abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed a ruptured spleen, which was confirmed on laparotomy. She had a complicated postoperative course and died of multiple organ failure. The second patient is a 56-year-old female who presented five days after ERCP and sphincterotomy with abdominal pain, abdominal wall ecchymosis, and decreasing hematocrit. Her evaluation included hospital admission and abdominal CT scan, which showed free fluid and a large hematoma in the transverse mesocolon. These findings were confirmed on laparotomy and a devascularized segment of bowel was resected. CONCLUSION: Only 6 cases of ERCP-related splenic injury have been reported in the literature. One additional report is available of a fatal splenic artery injury. No previous reports exist of a mesenteric hematoma resulting in bowel devascularization. Prompt evaluation and awareness of potential complications should help capture potentially life-threatening sequelae of ERCP. (+info)
Complete small bowel recovery after prolonged total venous occlusion. (5/88)Acute small bowel ischaemia is a mostly irreversible condition associated with high mortality. Here we report the case of a patient after severe abdominal trauma in whom the superior mesenteric vein (SMV) was completely occluded for more than 15 h in the absence of any collateral venous drainage. Following surgical reconstruction of the SMV and with scheduled relaparotomies for 5 days, the bowel showed slow recovery. Now the patient is well and on complete oral nutrition. (+info)
Fulminant ischaemic colitis with atypical clinical features complicating sickle cell disease. (6/88)Clinically significant ischaemic bowel injury is an exceedingly rare complication of sickle cell disease. It manifests as acute surgical abdomen and may respond to conservative treatment. An unusual fatal case of ischaemic colitis with minimal abdominal findings in a young male during a sickle cell vaso-occlusive pain crisis is described. This case demonstrates that an acute surgical abdomen should be considered in such patients who fail to respond to conservative management as untreated this condition may be fatal. (+info)
Endothelin-1 induces mucosal mast cell degranulation and tissue injury via ETA receptors. (7/88)The effects of endothelin-1 (ET-1) on mucosal mast cells are of special interest, since they may be an important component of the tissue response that occurs during ischaemic preconditioning or ischaemia/re-oxygenation injuries. Increasing doses of ET-1 were administered intravenously to anaesthetized rats. In a second series of experiments, animals were pretreated with the ET(A) receptor antagonists BQ-610 or ETR-P1/fl peptide, or with the ET(B) receptor antagonist IRL-1038. Intestinal perfusion changes were recorded, and the proportion of degranulated mast cells and the degree of mucosal damage were determined in ileal biopsies. ET-1 induced dose-dependent alterations in the haemodynamic and morphological parameters, and caused significant mast cell degranulation. These changes were inhibited significantly by pretreatment with the ET(A) receptor antagonists, but not with the ET(B) receptor antagonist. We conclude that a cross-talk exists between endothelial cell-derived humoral mediators and the intestinal mast cell system. (+info)
Colonic necrosis and perforation secondary to Escherichia coli O157:H7 gastroenteritis in an adult patient without hemolytic uremic syndrome. (8/88)During a multistate outbreak of Escherichia coli O157:H7 diarrhea, we encountered a woman who had hemorrhagic colitis complicated by ischemic colitis with perforation. To our knowledge, this has not previously been described in adult patients. Because of the insensitivity of the commonly used diagnostic methods, this condition may be underrecognized. (+info)
What to know about ischemic colitis - Medical Advise
Most people with chronic ischemic colitis recover with medication, and those experiencing severe ischemic colitis can have surgery. People may need to make some lifestyle changes to prevent the condition from returning.. Examples of helpful lifestyle changes include quitting smoking, exercising regularly, and eating a balanced diet. People may need to stop taking medications that contribute to ischemic colitis, with a doctors advice.. Acute ischemic colitis has a poorer outlook and a higher mortality rate than chronic ischemic colitis because it often causes gangrene. Swift medical treatment is crucial in acute cases.. People who experience symptoms of ischemic colitis should see a doctor promptly to improve the outlook and reduce the risk of complications. People should not ignore bloody stools. Seek emergency medical attention for severe abdominal pain that makes it difficult to sit down or get comfortable.. ...
Ischemic colitis Risk factors - Mayo Clinic
Ischemic colitis occurs when blood flow to part of the large intestine (colon) is reduced, usually due to narrowed or blocked blood vessels (arteries). The diminished blood flow doesnt provide enough oxygen for the cells in your digestive system.. Ischemic colitis can cause pain and may damage your colon. Any part of the colon can be affected, but ischemic colitis usually causes pain on the left side of the belly area (abdomen).. The condition can be misdiagnosed because it can easily be confused with other digestive problems. Ischemic colitis may heal on its own. But you may need medication to treat ischemic colitis or prevent infection, or you may need surgery if your colon has been damaged.. Signs and symptoms of ischemic colitis can include:. ...
Severe ischemic colitis following olanzapine use: a Case Report
Introduction. Ischemic colitis represents the most common form of intestinal ischemia with an incidence estimated between 4.5 and 44 cases per 100,000 person-years (1). Age represents an important risk factor as up to 90% of ischemic colitis occurs in patients over 60 years of age (2). Rarely, ischemic colitis has been reported in young and otherwise healthy individuals with no known risk factors (3). Many drugs have been associated with ischemic colitis including antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, vasopressors, cytotoxic agents, and neuroleptics (4). Clozapine, an atypical antipsychotic commonly prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia and manic episodes, has been linked to several reports of ischemic colitis (5-7). The underlying mechanism is believed to involve blockage of peripheral anticholinergic and antiserotonergic receptors leading to severe gastrointestinal hypomotility (8). Olanzapine, an atypical antipsychotic with a similar pharmacological profile to clozapine (9), has ...

METHODS: We analyzed medical records of consecutive patients with ischemic colitis treated between October 2002 and September 2008 at Severance Hospital, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Patients were excluded if results of endoscopy were unavailable. Patients were classified as having severe ischemic colitis on the basis of outcome (improvement delayed for more than 2 weeks, complications requiring surgery, or death). Univariate analyses and multivariate logistic regression analyses with backward stepwise selection were used to identify clinical, endoscopic, and laboratory variables associated with ...
Stercoral colitis complicated with ischemic colitis: a double-edge sword | BMC Gastroenterology | Full Text
Stercoral colitis is a rare inflammatory process involving the colonic wall secondary to fecal impaction with high morbidity and mortality; especially if complicated with ischemic colitis, stercoral ulcer formation and subsequent perforation. There are several case reports published on abdominal perforation resulting from stercoral colitis. However, stercoral colitis complicated by ischemic colitis is rare. The purpose of this case report is to describe the potential challenges in the diagnosis and management of stercoral colitis with ischemic colitis. An 87 years old male with history of chronic constipation presents with severe abdominal pain to the emergency department. The patient was hemodynamically stable. On physical examination, the abdomen was mildly distended with moderate tenderness. Lab work was significant for leukocytosis and lactic acidosis. Abdominal CT scan revealed large amount of retained stool in the colon, bowel wall thickening and infiltration of peri-colonic fat, which were

In its early phases, bed rests and supportive care, possibly with antibiotics is instituted. Attempts are made to understand what caused the disease. Problems such as blood clots to arteries supplying the colon must be diagnosed. If the patient has low blood pressure from other causes, the blood supply to the colon may be diminished leading to ischemic colitis. The underlying cause of the low blood pressure must be treated. Finally, ischemic colitis may occur after the repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, and this may require reoperation.. I.V. fluids are given, along with antibiotics. Patients may not eat or drink anything. If the disease is severe enough, is non-responsive to conservative care or is life threatening, surgery to remove the diseased portion of the colon will be undertaken.. ...

In the study of 15 patients with ischemia of the colon, researchers found that rigid proctoscopy was normal or demonstrated nonspecific proctitis in 12 of 15 patients studied. Colonoscopic biopsies demonstrated superficial inflammatory changes in all patients. Thirteen patients had complete mucosal healing endoscopically in 2 weeks to 3 months with stricture developing in four patients. Because ischemic colitis is a distinct subtype of ischemic bowel disease most often limited to the superficial mucosa, colonoscopy is an alternative and usually safe modality in the diagnosis of this entity and proved more accurate that conventional x-ray and proctoscopy(97 ...

The new warning states, Serious consequences of diarrhea, including hypovolemia, hypotension and syncope have been reported in the clinical studies and during marketed use of Zelnorm. In some cases, these complications have required hospitalization for rehydration. Zelnorm should be discontinued immediately in patients who develop hypotension or syncope. Zelnorm should not be initiated in patients who are currently experiencing or frequently experience diarrhea.. The new precaution on ischemic colitis states, Ischemic colitis, and other forms of intestinal ischemia, have been reported in patients receiving Zelnorm during marketed use of the drug. A causal relationship between Zelnorm use and these events has not been established.

It depends on the severity, but generally, the inflammation will heal on its own. You may be asked to stay on a bland, low-fiber diet for 1-2 weeks. Avoiding non-steroidal inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, etc) may speed the healing of the colitis. If a drug is identified that may have caused the ischemic colitis, you may be asked to stop it. Smoking cessation improves the health of the blood vessels supplying your colon. If you have had blood clots in other areas of the body, or a family history of blood clots, then you may be asked to undergo testing for blood clotting disorders (hypercoagulable state). If you have had more than one episode of ischemic colitis, additional imaging may be recommended to look at the vessels that supply blood to the colon. Occasionally, a repeat colonoscopy is recommended to assure that the colon has healed, but depends on the severity of the involvement, and will be determined by your physician.. ...

Although the treatment of MM has undergone significant development during the past decades, MM remains an incurable malignancy and requires long-term follow-up. Furthermore, despite the positive results with lenalidomide maintenance therapy in the post-ASCT setting, many issues affect MM follow-up. These include the treatment-related toxicities of lenalidomide that are more frequently recognized with long-term use (1). The interest of this clinical case is 2-fold: firstly the unusual occurrence of VTE causing IC in our patient; in fact, therapy with lenalidomide as a single agent does not increase the risk of VTE in relapsed or refractory MM. The risk of VTE is usually increased when lenalidomide is given together with dexamethasone or chemotherapy and/or erythropoietin, and in these cases many thrombotic events appear during the first months of therapy, with a median appearance at 1.3 months (3). The second point of interest of this case is its favorable diagnostic management. In fact, even if ...

Alosetron - Wikipedia
Alosetron was originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on February 9, 2000, after a seven-month review. At the time of the initial approval U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewers found that alosetron improved symptoms in 10% to 20% of patients. Shipment to pharmacies started in March, 2000. On July 17, a health professional filed a report with the FDA on the death of a 50-year-old woman who suffered mesenteric ischemia. The report identified alosetron as the primary suspect in the death. Alosetron was withdrawn from the market voluntarily by GlaxoWellcome on November 28, 2000 owing to the occurrence of serious life-threatening gastrointestinal adverse effects, including 5 deaths and additional bowel surgeries. The FDA said it had reports of 49 cases of ischemic colitis and 21 cases of severe constipation and that ten of the 70 patients underwent surgeries and 34 others were examined at hospitals and released without surgery. Through ...
2019 Abstract Details - SOAP
BACKGROUND: Rates of pregnancy post heart transplantation (HT) are increasing. Cesarean delivery (CD) rate post HT is 30%.1 Reports of anesthetic management of these patients are rare. We report the anesthetic management of CD in a patient post HT and review similar published cases. CASE REPORT: A 36 y G1P0 presented with a history of post viral dilated cardiomyopathy requiring orthotopic HT at age 30. Post-transplant course was complicated by sepsis, acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease, and bowel resection for ischemic colitis. Graft sinus dysfunction required permanent pacemaker insertion. In pregnancy, the patient had a pulmonary embolus requiring therapeutic anticoagulation. She was admitted at 35+3 weeks gestation for increasing exertional dyspnea and anxiety. Elective CD was performed at 36+2 weeks gestation due to severe patient anxiety. ASA monitors were applied; arterial line was deferred due to poor radial artery perfusion from prior cannulation. Aspiration prophylaxis, ...

Lower Gastrointestinal Disorders Among Dialysis Patients | AVESİS
The prevalence of co-morbid gastrointestinal symptoms is high in dialysis patients, while abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, anorexia and abdominal bloating are the second-most common group of symptoms following dyspeptic symptoms. Underlying these symptoms is a wide spectrum of lower gastrointestinal disorders such as diverticular disease, angiodysplasia, mesenteric ischemia, ischemic colitis, colonic perforation, fecal impaction and stercoral ulcer, dialysis-related amyloidosis, encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis, and idiopathic dialysis ascites. Also, infarcts due to non-occlusive intestinal ischemia are less common but severe complications. Incidence of gastrointestinal disorders is considered to increase with the duration of renal failure, independent of dialysis modality. While uremia and dialysis have been linked to an increased risk of gastrointestinal tract lesions, pathogenesis of gastrointestinal dysfunction in end-stage renal disease is considered multifactorial and has not yet ...

Right-upper quadrant abdominal pain - Cancer Therapy Advisor
1. When did the pain start or how long have you been having RUQ pain?. Acuity, intensity and duration of pain maybe helpful in assessing severity of disease. A sudden onset of pain suggests a serious intra-abdominal event such as an organ perforation (duodenal ulcer perforation, colonic diverticular perforation) or ischemia (ischemic colitis) or obstruction of a small tubular structure (renal pevis or ureteric stone).. A more gradual onset of symptoms (a few days) suggests an infectious or inflammatory cause (acute cholecystitis or gastroenteritis) or obstruction of a large tubular structure (colonic obstruction).. 2. Any recent trauma to this area? Any recent abdominal surgery?. Rule out trauma as the cause of the pain.. 3. Have you ever had this problem before?. If present, it suggests a chronic intermittent problem e.g. cholelithiasis, diverticulitis, nephrolithiasis.. 4. Any history of gall bladder or liver disease? Any history of pancreatitis, peptic ulcer disease, diverticulosis, Crohns ...

Mesenteric panniculitis presenting with acute non-occlusive colonic ischemia | International Archives of Medicine | Full Text
MP is most often an incidental finding during an investigation for other reasons. The most common physical finding is a poorly defined mass or masses in the right upper quadrant. Patients usually present with vague symptoms of abdominal fullness and pain in the upper or central abdomen . There may also be nausea, altered bowel habit and lethargy. Rectal bleeding, as in the patient presented here, is an unusual presentation for MP . Even though in our patient hematochezia could have been caused by antibiotic-associated colitis because of a preceding course of therapy with a broad-spectrum penicillin, histological examination of colonic biopsies and microbiologic testing excluded the differential diagnosis of Clostridium difficile-associated colitis.. Laboratory investigations are usually grossly normal. Studies found that patients had a raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate or other acute phase reactants . In our case, elevated laboratory signs of inflammation were found only during the ...
