[Laparoscopic proctocolectomy technique : Restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis in ulcerative colitis. Video article].

Laparoscopic restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) constitutes a curative treatment option for therapy-refractory ulcerative colitis. A two-stage procedure with loop ileostomy at the time of IPAA is the most frequent variant of surgery. The aim of the procedure is the complete removal of the colon and rectum with simultaneous restoration of gastrointestinal continuity and preservation of continence functions. Long-term quality of life following laparoscopic proctocolectomy with IPAA is good and comparable with a healthy reference population. The surgical technique is demonstrated in detail with the help of a video of the operation, which is available online.
