[68] compared surgical outcomes of CD patients with perforating versus nonperforating disease following ileocolic resection.
Following the withdrawal of the small intestine into the abdomen, a functional side-by-side ileocolic anastomosis was performed by resecting the ischemic segment with the caecum.
Histopathology revealed involvement of appendiceal or ileocolic lymph nodes
The associated diseases/clinical conditions included ischemic bowel (3 cases), diverticulosis (2 cases), sepsis (1 case), Clostridium difficile colitis (1 case), Crohn disease after ileocolic resection (1 case), volvulus (1 case), endoscopically resected polyps (1 case), lymphoma (1 case), bowel perforation (1 case), and rectal bleeding (1 case).
12-18% of the desmoid-type fibromatoses are intra-abdominal; 80% of them are located in the mesentery of the small bowel, but some may originate from the ileocolic mesentery.
After an ileocolic resection he was found to have intestinal spirochetosis of the caecum.
When diagnostic, a large dilated ovoid air-filled cecum is usually visualized in the upper left abdomen as the hypermobile cecum has rotated upward and to the left around the ileocolic vessels and is often referred to as a "kidney shaped" gaseous distended loop of bowel.
Rotation occurs around the ileocolic artery, impairing blood supply.
Our results are different from those published before with laparoscopic-assisted ileocolic resections for CD [16, 17, 21], since most of the studies have focused on confirming the benefits of laparoscopic approach over open surgery in patients with CD.
The CT scan showed an increased CT value of the greater omentum and ileocolic mesentery, and ascites (Figure 1).
