Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Postoperative complications and longer hospital stays were more common in patients with acute ulcerative colitis for whom surgery was delayed, according to retrospective study data presented at the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons Annual Scientific Meeting.
Study investigators concluded that early surgical intervention should therefore be considered in patients who are hospitalized for severe acute ulcerative colitis.
