The disruptive symptoms of left-sided ulcerative colitis—such as bowel inflammation, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding—can cause embarrassment in patients and affect their quality of life. In this 3-part video series, Dr. Marla Dubinsky sits down with Drs. David Hudesman and Simon Lichtiger to discuss important topics in left-sided ulcerative colitis, including the role of rectal therapies and how to explain this type of treatment option to your patients. The panel discusses the safety profile of a rectal foam therapy that they have experienced in their patients. They also review how best to communicate information and guidance to patients.
