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.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Pouch status: functional pouch or non-functional pouch (diverted or excised)
Participants will be queried once per year as to the status of their intestinal pouch. Patients will have either a functional pouch or a non-functional pouch. A pouch will be considered functional if patient is not temporarily or permanently diverted to an ileostomy.
Once per year for duration of the study
