Abstract

The incidence of acute pouchitis complicating deonal anastomosis is high but antibiotics perhaps combined with probiotics yield good results and preserve an excellent quality of life. Continued complaints require evaluation for surgical conditions, cuffitis, or Crohn's disease. Concern regarding the development of dysplasia and subsequent cancer is needed only for those patients with specific, chronic histologic changes.
