Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Incidence of Adhesions, Defined as the Proportion of Subjects Presenting at the Follow-up Surgery (10-12 Weeks) With One or More Adhesions to the Midline Incision, Regardless of Extent and/or Severity. [ Time Frame: 10-12 Weeks post Initial Surgery for J-Pouch ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Severity of Adhesions [ Time Frame: Average 10-12 weeks post surgery ]
    Worst midline adhesion severity score. The severity of adhesions was categorized as filmy thickness, avascular; moderate thickness, limited vascularity; and dense thickness, vascularised. The corresponding numeric severity ratings are "1", "2", and "3". Subjects without adhesions were assigned a severity rating of "0".

  • Adhesion Involvement Along the Midline Incision (Percentage) [ Time Frame: average 10-12 weeks post surgery ]
    The proportion of the total length of the initial midline incision associated with any adhesion at the time of the follow-up surgery, as determined by dividing the length of the incision associated with adhesions (cm) by the overall initial midline incision length (cm). This calculates the extent of adhesion involvement as a percentage.

  • Mobilization Time [ Time Frame: average 10-12 weeks post surgery ]
    The time (minute) required to incise and mobilize the ileal loop in preparation for reanastomosis for ileostomy closure.
