Complications and risk factors after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis for ulcerative colitis associated with primary sclerosing cholangitis.
Kartheuser, A H
OBJECTIVE: This study determined predictive factors for postoperative complications and outcome after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis in patients with ulcerative colitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Patients with ulcerative colitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis treated by colectomy and ileostomy are at high risk of troublesome bleeding from peristomal varices. METHODS: Postoperative complications and outcome were assessed in 40 patients with ulcerative colitis and sclerosing cholangitis who received an ileal pouch-anal anastomosis between January 1981 and February 1990. RESULTS: Immediate postoperative and remote ileoanal anastomosis-related complications were high but related directly to the severity of liver disease. No patient had perianastomotic anal bleeding. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with both ulcerative colitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis, ileal pouch-anal anastomosis is safe and is not associated with perianastomotic bleeding.
