Background Although pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis (PCI) is observed in patients who are on corticosteroid treatment, most patients have underlying diseases requiring long-term corticosteroid treatment. Herein, we present a rare case of a patient with aseptic meningitis who had PCI of the ascending colon while receiving betamethasone treatment.

Background Few maintenance therapeutic options are available for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Data on the effects of continuing 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) treatment in patients who commence on biologics as maintenance treatment remain scarce. We evaluated IBD patient outcomes after continuation/discontinuation of 5-ASA when biologics were administered as maintenance treatment.

Background The steep learning curve for safe introduction of transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME) highlights the need for mentored training reserved for surgeons with expertise in minimally invasive colorectal surgery and transanal surgery. Video-based education in minimally invasive surgery is considered by surgical trainers as a useful teaching aid to maximize learning. This study aims to systematically assess the availability and quality of online TaTME videos.

Background It remains controversial whether patients benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy (ACT) after resection of pulmonary metastasis (PM) from colorectal cancer (CRC). This meta-analysis was intended to evaluate the efficacy of ACT in patients after resection of PM from CRC.
