Serum biochemical evaluation of patients with functional pouches ten to 20 years after restorative proctocolectomy

Abstract

Restorative proctocolectomy with an ileal pouch–anal anastomosis is a surgical treatment of choice for ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Pouchitis is a significant enigmatic morbidity. In the long-term, these patients, we anticipated, would experience biochemical profiling alterations after years of retaining functionally… (More)
