inflammatory bowel disease
Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Crohn’s Disease

Ulcerative Colitis

crohn s disease
Crohn’s Disease
  • Affects small intestine (small bowel)
  • Colon may be involved
  • Medical treatment is mainstay
surgery and crohn s
Surgery and Crohn’s

Approximately

70 %

of patients with Crohn’s ultimately come to operation

why operate
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
Complications of Disease
  • Hole in bowel
    • Perforation
    • Abscess
  • Blockage
    • Obstruction
  • Bleeding
  • Fistula
what do surgeons do
What do surgeons do?

“When in doubt,

cut it out”

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

goals for surgery
Goals for Surgery
  • Remove problem segments of bowel
  • Maximize the amount of useful bowel left behind
  • Avoid surgical complications
goals for surgeon and patient
Goals for Surgeon and Patient

Restore quality of life

stricture
Stricture
  • Narrowing of a portion of bowel
  • Caused by repeated episodes of inflammation
  • Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and pain
stricturoplasty
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
anastomosis
“Anastomosis”
  • Surgical connection or juncture
  • Sutures (needle and thread)
  • Staples
anastomosis18
Anastomosis
  • Not always possible
  • Stool needs an exit from the body
  • Ileostomy
    • “The bag”
    • Direct connection of intestine to outside world
slide19

Ileostomy

or

Stoma

abscess
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
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
Fistula
  • An abnormal connection between two structures
  • Often between two loops of bowel
  • May connect to bladder, vagina, skin, or other organs
fistula25
Fistula
  • Treatment may be medical
  • Surgery often required
  • Remove the segment of bowel and the connection
  • Repair the other organ
risks and complications
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
Surgical Complications
  • Bleeding
    • 2-5%
  • Infection
    • 2-10%
  • Breakdown of anastomosis
    • 2-4%
  • Injury to neighboring structures
ulcerative colitis29
Ulcerative Colitis
  • Affects large intestine (colon)
  • Inflammation of deep layers of colon wall
  • Multiple medicines available
surgery and uc
Surgery and UC

Approximately

35 %

of patients with UC ultimately come to operation

why operate31
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
Complications of Disease
  • Hole in bowel
    • Perforation
    • “Toxic megacolon”
  • Bleeding
  • Risk of cancer
what do surgeons do33
What do surgeons do?
  • Remove the colon
  • Left with small intestine and cuff of rectum
  • Ileostomy (temporary or permanent)
  • Pouch created with small bowel
staged procedures
Staged Procedures
  • To minimize complications, sometimes the operations are done in sequence
  • Stage I: Removal of colon and ileostomy
  • Stage II: Reconnection
surgical complications37
Surgical Complications
  • Bleeding
    • 2-5%
  • Infection
    • 2-10%
  • Breakdown
    • 2-4%
surgical complications38
Surgical Complications
  • “Pouchitis”
    • Inflammation of pouch
    • Diarrhea and pain
    • Treated with antibiotics
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Infertility
minimally invasive surgery40
Minimally Invasive Surgery
  • Also known as “Laparoscopic” surgery
  • Used in over 20 million Americans
  • MIS proven to be as effective as conventional surgery

The Evolution of Incisions

Past Present Future

Long Laparotomy Minimally Invasive SurgeryIncisionless Surgery

minimally invasive surgery42
Minimally Invasive Surgery
  • Many procedures may be started with minimally invasive techniques
  • Surgeon can convert to traditional open surgery if deemed safer
why bother
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

Patient Benefits of MIS

  • Shorter length of stay in hospital
  • Less recovery time
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Improved cosmetic outcome
mis overview
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
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
not all patients are candidates for mis
Not all patients are candidates for MIS
  • Inability to safely visualize organs
  • Problems during the operation
  • Underlying medical conditions
conclusions
Conclusions
  • IBD has surgical options
  • Surgery reserved for complications of disease or therapy
  • Minimally invasive techniques may be applied
