Ileal Pouch-Anal Anastomosis (IPAA) Registry

In order to better understand the long-term outcomes following IPAA, a registry that
collects pertinent information about the underlying disease and its treatments and
complications in an organized manner must be established. Establishing this Registry will
allow us to follow patients who have an IPAA and organize retrospective medical information
into a meaningful system.

Indeterminate colitis, Familial adenomatous polyposis, Hereditary nonpolyposis
