2015 has seen further development of our Fellowships Programme, which now offers a wider variety of formats to provide flexibility and greater opportunity; this re-design followed indications that we got from some National Representatives, that shorter periods to observe would be more accessible for those unable to leave their posts for a longer period.

Ahead of the first ESCP/ECCO regional masterclass in Moscow, Professor Yves Panis (Professor of Digestive Surgery at the Université Paris VII and Head of the Department of Colorectal Surgery at Beaujon Hospital, Clichy, France) discusses the surgical treatment of acute severe colitis. Although there are no established national registries or surveys on the exact numbers regarding the prevalence of acute severe colitis, the current evidence suggests that around 10-15% of all the patients with ulcerative colitis will at some point develop acute severe colitis. Although which patients will develop the condition and why, is unknown.
