Surgery and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

The gastrointestinal tract l.jpg

The Gastrointestinal Tract


Inflammatory bowel disease l.jpg

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Crohn’s Disease

Ulcerative Colitis


Crohn s disease l.jpg

Crohn’s Disease

  • Affects small intestine (small bowel)

  • Colon may be involved

  • Medical treatment is mainstay


Surgery and crohn s l.jpg

Surgery and Crohn’s

Approximately

70 %

of patients with Crohn’s ultimately come to operation


Why operate l.jpg

Why Operate?

  • Complications of disease

  • Complications of therapy

    • If medications don’t work

    • If you can’t take medication

    • If you won’t take medication


Complications of disease l.jpg

Complications of Disease

  • Hole in bowel

    • Perforation

    • Abscess

  • Blockage

    • Obstruction

  • Bleeding

  • Fistula


What do surgeons do l.jpg

What do surgeons do?

“When in doubt,

cut it out”

(okay, alter or remove the sites of maximum pathology)


Sometimes things don t work l.jpg

Sometimes things don’t work


Goals for surgery l.jpg

Goals for Surgery

  • Remove problem segments of bowel

  • Maximize the amount of useful bowel left behind

  • Avoid surgical complications


Goals for surgeon and patient l.jpg

Goals for Surgeon and Patient

Restore quality of life


Stricturoplasty opening a blocked portion of intestine l.jpg

Stricturoplasty(Opening a blocked portion of intestine)


Stricture l.jpg

Stricture

  • Narrowing of a portion of bowel

  • Caused by repeated episodes of inflammation

  • Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and pain


Stricturoplasty l.jpg

Stricturoplasty

  • Surgical technique of opening a portion of bowel

  • Involves making an incision on the diseased segment and sewing it back together in another way


Resection removal of a portion of intestine l.jpg

Resection(Removal of a portion of intestine)


Anastomosis l.jpg

“Anastomosis”

  • Surgical connection or juncture

  • Sutures (needle and thread)

  • Staples


Anastomosis17 l.jpg

Anastomosis


Anastomosis18 l.jpg

Anastomosis

  • Not always possible

  • Stool needs an exit from the body

  • Ileostomy

    • “The bag”

    • Direct connection of intestine to outside world


Slide19 l.jpg

Ileostomy

or

Stoma


Abscess infection l.jpg

Abscess (Infection)


Abscess l.jpg

Abscess

  • Infection inside the abdomen

  • Abscess must be drained – antibiotics alone are not enough

  • External drain may be image-guided

  • May use operation for drainage


Abscess22 l.jpg

Abscess

  • The source of an abscess is often a diseased segment of bowel

  • Once the abscess is drained, the diseased segment can be removed more safely


Fistula abnormal connection l.jpg

Fistula(Abnormal connection)


Fistula l.jpg

Fistula

  • An abnormal connection between two structures

  • Often between two loops of bowel

  • May connect to bladder, vagina, skin, or other organs


Fistula25 l.jpg

Fistula

  • Treatment may be medical

  • Surgery often required

  • Remove the segment of bowel and the connection

  • Repair the other organ


Risks and complications l.jpg

Risks and Complications

  • All surgical procedures have risks, but the risk for serious complications depends on your medical condition and age, as well as on your surgeon’s and anesthesiologist’s experience


Surgical complications l.jpg

Surgical Complications

  • Bleeding

    • 2-5%

  • Infection

    • 2-10%

  • Breakdown of anastomosis

    • 2-4%

  • Injury to neighboring structures


Ulcerative colitis l.jpg

Ulcerative Colitis


Ulcerative colitis29 l.jpg

Ulcerative Colitis

  • Affects large intestine (colon)

  • Inflammation of deep layers of colon wall

  • Multiple medicines available


Surgery and uc l.jpg

Surgery and UC

Approximately

35 %

of patients with UC ultimately come to operation


Why operate31 l.jpg

Why Operate?

  • Complications of disease

  • Complications of therapy

    • If medications don’t work

    • If you can’t take medication

    • If you won’t take medication


Complications of disease32 l.jpg

Complications of Disease

  • Hole in bowel

    • Perforation

    • “Toxic megacolon”

  • Bleeding

  • Risk of cancer


What do surgeons do33 l.jpg

What do surgeons do?

  • Remove the colon

  • Left with small intestine and cuff of rectum

  • Ileostomy (temporary or permanent)

  • Pouch created with small bowel


Small bowel pouch l.jpg

Small bowel pouch


Staged procedures l.jpg

Staged Procedures

  • To minimize complications, sometimes the operations are done in sequence

  • Stage I: Removal of colon and ileostomy

  • Stage II: Reconnection


Surgical complications37 l.jpg

Surgical Complications

  • Bleeding

    • 2-5%

  • Infection

    • 2-10%

  • Breakdown

    • 2-4%


Surgical complications38 l.jpg

Surgical Complications

  • “Pouchitis”

    • Inflammation of pouch

    • Diarrhea and pain

    • Treated with antibiotics

  • Bowel obstruction

  • Infertility


Minimally invasive surgery l.jpg

Minimally Invasive Surgery


Minimally invasive surgery40 l.jpg

Minimally Invasive Surgery

  • Also known as “Laparoscopic” surgery

  • Used in over 20 million Americans

  • MIS proven to be as effective as conventional surgery

Minimally invasive surgery42 l.jpg

Minimally Invasive Surgery

  • Many procedures may be started with minimally invasive techniques

  • Surgeon can convert to traditional open surgery if deemed safer


Why bother l.jpg

Why Bother?

Experience has shown us that minimally invasive procedures can have an influence over the quality of the patient experience when compared to traditional open surgical options


Slide44 l.jpg

Patient Benefits of MIS

  • Shorter length of stay in hospital

  • Less recovery time

  • Less pain

  • Less scarring

  • Improved cosmetic outcome


Mis overview l.jpg

MIS Overview

  • Involves the use of trocars (thin tubes) placed through three to five small, dime-sized puncture wounds

  • Carbon dioxide gas used to inflate the abdomen and create a working space between the internal organs and the skin


Mis overview46 l.jpg

MIS Overview

  • Video camera introduced

  • Image on video monitors is magnified, providing better visibility for operating room staff

  • Specialized instruments placed through the other trocars to perform the operation


Mis for ibd surgery l.jpg

MIS for IBD Surgery


Mis for ibd surgery48 l.jpg

MIS for IBD Surgery


Not all patients are candidates for mis l.jpg

Not all patients are candidates for MIS

  • Inability to safely visualize organs

  • Problems during the operation

  • Underlying medical conditions


Conclusions l.jpg

Conclusions

  • IBD has surgical options

  • Surgery reserved for complications of disease or therapy

  • Minimally invasive techniques may be applied
