Ileal mucosal morphology, fecal bacteriology, fecal volatile fatty acids, and their interrelationships were studied in 15 patients with an ileal pouch-anal anastomosis and 14 patients with an ileostomy after proctocolectomy for ulcerative colitis. Pouch effluent, compared with ileostomy effluent, had a greater ratio of anaerobes to aerobes (p less than 0.05), and greater numbers of Bacteroides (p less than 0.01) and Bifidobacteria (p less than 0.05). Fecal volatile fatty acids, products of… CONTINUE READING
