LOOP ILEOSTOMY AFTER ILEAL POUCH-ANAL ANASTOMOSIS - IS IT NECESSARY.
DIS COLON RECTUM
267 - 270.
Construction of a loop ileostomy is usually advised in patients having an ileal pounch-anal anastomosis to minimize the complication of chronic pelvic sepsis. Formation and closure of a loop ileostomy was associated with a 41 percent and 30 percent complication rate, respectively, in a prospective series of 34 patients. This morbidity must now be assessed in relation to the benefits of avoiding temporary fecal diversion in restorative proctocolectomy.
