Muscle and physical activity play an important role in in growth, development and bone health in healthy children, especially during puberty. Children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have lower level and intensity of physical compared to a control group. Several studies have shown that children with IBD have a lower bone mineral density (BMD) than general population, due to risk factors such as corticosteroid use, disease intensity, inflammation, malnutrition and a vitamin D deficiency. This low BMD is associated with an increased risk of fracture. A recent observational study found a positive and significant correlation between BMD in IBD patients and time spent in moderate to vigorous physical activity for one week (unpublished data).The present study aims to show a benefit of an adapted physical activity program on BMD in children and adolescents with IBD.
Observational, Multicenter, Post-market, Minimal risk, Prospective data collection of PillCam SB3 videos (including PillCam reports) and raw data files with GI pathologies.
Women generally report discomfort and a delay in GI motility after CS. The Paula method, circular exercises of ring muscles has been shown to increase GI motility. This method had not been studied in women post CS. The current study is comparing the resumption of bowel sounds after CS in women utilizing the Paula exercises to standard care (no exercises).
National multicentric observatory of low bowel preparations in patients with IBD
The objective of this study is to study the response of macrophages, isolated from patients with ulcerative colitis (Crohn's disease) or Crohn's disease (CD), to 6 candidate enterogenous and their derivatives, depending on the genotype for associated polymorphisms. to the development of IBD
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of SonoVue® in participants with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis to various aspects including type of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, disease activity, the need for surgical treatment.
Objectives:The aim of this study was to translate the Childhood Bladder and Bowel Dysfunction Questionnaire into Turkish, adapt it for use with parents of 5-12 year old children and determine the reliability and construct validity of the Turkish version. The main hypothesis of our study was that it would be possible to translate and culturally adapt the CBBDQ into a Turkish version, so that Turkish parents could understand it. Additionally, we hypothesized that the Turkish version would provide adequate internal consistency and test-rest reliability and acceptable construct validity. Methods:The Childhood Bladder and Bowel Dysfunction Questionnaire was guideline driven translated into Turkish and administered twice, at 7-day intervals, to parents of children to assess test-retest reliability. Cronbach's α was used for internal consistency and the inter-rater correlation coefficient was used to calculate test-retest reliability. The Dysfunctional Voiding and Incontinence Scoring System (DVISS) and Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL) in 5-7, 8-12 years old children were used as an external criterion to estimate construct validity.
This study explores the lived experiences of family planning for women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and their partners during the reproductive stages of pre-conception, pregnancy and the postnatal period through qualitative interviews. Insights from existing literature alongside findings from interviews and focus groups with patients and healthcare providers to develop an intervention to address the issues and support needs as identified by study participants.
Postoperative pain can pose significant challenges in the postoperative recovery of patients undergoing major colorectal surgery. Traditionally, opioids have played an important role in treating postoperative pain. It is well established that opioids are highly effective in relieving pain; however, opioids are associated with numerous side effects that include nausea, vomiting, constipation, ileus, bladder dysfunction, respiratory depression, pruritus, drowsiness, sedation, and allergic reaction. These opioid side effects, which range in severity, can significantly interfere with discharge home, particularly following colorectal surgery. Significant interest has grown for the use of guided regional anesthesia, specifically the use of the transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block to extend the post-operative analgesic window and ultimately limit opioid use. While bupivacaine formulations including a steroid has been shown to prolong the anesthetic effects of the regional field block, a new liposomal-depo formulation of bupivacaine (Exparel) has gained popularity and has additionally been shown to provide extended analgesia. Although promising data exists surrounding each modality, liposomal bupivacaine has not been studied in a well-powered clinical trial specifically in colorectal patients nor compared to a bupivacaine/steroid mixture. We are proposing a prospective randomized study of patients undergoing major laparoscopic colorectal surgery to compare the analgesic effects of a bupivacaine/steroid mixture versus liposomal bupivacaine (Exparel). We hypothesize that the liposomal formulation of bupivacaine will provide superior perioperative pain control at 48 hours post-operation measured by total consumed oral morphine equivalents. In addition, we will measure postoperative pain scores, time until ambulation, antiemetic use, length of postoperative hospital stay, postoperative ileus, and adverse events directly related or unrelated to TAP block in the 30-day postoperative period between the three groups.
The primary aim of this study is to evaluate the effect and impact of a technology which creates a virtual reality (VR), personalized representation of a patient's endoscopic findings in comparison our standard practice (SP). Our study will compare the level of knowledge, understanding and satisfaction the patient and family have between those receiving SP and those receiving both SP and VR.
