Discussion & Conclusion

Q: Is it related to the results presented before? Do you consider them as coherent?

A: Good

 

Comments: The Discussion illustrates the comparative retrospective study of the patients followed by the experimentation methods used in the study providing relevant literature. This further highlights the protective factors for surgery in small bowel involved Crohn’s Disease (CD) along with the limitations of the study. The Conclusion states that the isolated small-bowel CD can sometimes be misdiagnosed as abdominal pain and possibly without significant changes in laboratory results, and surgery may be mandatory if the symptoms persist.
