    Many surgical methods have been described for the treatment of full-thickness rectal prolapse. Rarely, unusually large lengths of colon must be excised, thus resulting in a significant loss of the absorptive function of the remaining colon. We present an unusual case in which an extraordinary...

    After a total proctocolectomy, ileoanal continuity is achieved by an ileal pouch–anal anastomosis. This anastomosis is not possible when the ileum cannot reach the anus. To avoid definitive ileostomy in this circumstance, we devised a gastric pouch, taken from the left half of the...

    Background and aims. The double-stapled ileoanal reservoir (DSIAR) has become a preferred method for ileal pouch anal anastomosis in restorative proctocolectomy. This investigation assessed the relative ratio of epithelial tissue types within the anal transition zone after a DSIAR and reviewed...

    In restorative proctocolectomy the use of a stapling technique to construct an ileal pouch with anal anastomosis offers an alternative to the hand-sewn technique following mucosectomy; a temporary defunctioning loop ileostomy may reduce the consequences of an anastomotic leakage, however it may...

    Introduction: Standard treatment for ulcerative colitis and prevention of malignancy is total proctocolectomy with a neoileal pouch. The ideal configuration of the pouch has been debated. We hypothesized that there was no difference in quality of life between the J pouch and the W...

    Background: Fistula between an ileal pouch and the vagina, anus, or perineum is an uncommon complication of ileal pouch-anal anastomosis and is a cause of considerable morbidity. Its optimal management has not been determined because of its low incidence. The aim of this study was to review the...
