Ileoanal Anastomosis with Ileal Reservoir Following Total Colectomy and Mucosal Proctectomy

  • Jameson L. Chassin


This combination of operations will certainly accomplish complete removal of the diseased colonic mucosa. The threat that carcinoma may develop postoperatively in the colon is eliminated at the cost of removing all of the colon and rectum. The patient must live henceforth with a permanent ileostomy. Although many patients may make a good adjustment ileostomy to life with a permanent ileostomy, the ileostomy does engender late surgical and psychosocial complications.
