ECCO Topical Review
Over the past years, ECCO has successfully published a considerable number of Consensus Guidelines on important topics of IBD. These guidelines will be updated on a regular basis; and there is the strong commitment to ensure user-friendliness. Thus ECCO is striving to contain the number of published Guidelines in order to avoid the publication of too many separate Guidelines manuscripts and to keep the information as concise as possible.
At the same time, the progress of research raises new topics, which ECCO is covering with the new series of publications “ECCO Topical Review”. These expert reviews are distinct from guideline papers and reserved to areas with yet limited evidence-based information. They focus on a particular topic related to the diagnosis, classification, or management of inflammatory bowel diseases and are authorised by ECCO by following the respective standard operating procedures. Expert opinion consensus endorsed by ECCO is the core feature of this procedure.
