We were all very sad to learn recently of the death of our friend Yehiel "Chilik" Ziv, who sadly lost his battle with cancer. We have sent our deepest condolences to his family. Chilik was a keen supporter of the Society, an active member of the Programme Committee for some years, and he will be greatly missed.

First, I would like to express my gratitude to the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) for the privilege of granting me a two-week travelling fellowship. My fellowship experiences at Karolinska University Hospital, St. Mark’s Hospital, and Amsterdam Medical Center were both exciting and enlightening. This invaluable experience will have a major impact on my future clinical practice and research content. Indeed, my short stay in Europe will be a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Professor Andre D’Hoore, who chaired both the Guidelines Synthesis report session and the keynote lecture by Evaghelos Xynos, talked with us about rectal prolapse before our annual meeting in Barcelona… “There is a lot of debate on how to manage perianal Crohn’s disease. A recent publication in Gut on a ‘global consensus’ on classification, diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment demonstrates the shortage of high quality randomised clinical trials for surgical options for patients with Crohn’s disease,” began Professor D’Hoore.
