Aims. Prospective Study: We aimed to compare, in a prospective longitudinal study, findings related to CD recurrence as assessed by procedures visualizing either the luminal surface (i.e. ileocolonoscopy or SBFT) or the extraluminal surface (SICUS) in a cohort of CD patients prospectively followed up at 1, 2 and 3 years after ileo-colonic resection.
Retrospective Study:In an different cohort of CD patients, we also aimed to assess, in retrospective analysis, the frequency, pattern and risk factors of postoperative recurrence in CD patients with “curative” resection different from ileo-colon.
