Abstract

Surgery can be a curative treatment for ulcerative colitis. The correct surgical procedure is a total proctocolectomy and ileo anal J pouch anastomosis (IPAA). This procedure is feasible also in laparoscopic approach after a correct learning curve. Pouchitis, pouch complications, intestinal occlusion, infertility are the most common long term complications. We present a case of a 37-year-old man treated with laparoscopic proctocolectomy and followed at 18 months.
