Little is known about the factors that predispose patients to complications after an ileal pouch-anal anastomosis procedure (IPAA). Our goal is to establish a registry that prospectively captures pre- and post-surgical data from participants. Retrospective studies concerning IPAA outcomes and will be conducted using these data.

Further study details as provided by Boston Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pouch status: functional pouch or non-functional pouch (diverted or excised) [ Time Frame: Once per year for duration of the study ]
    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.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of life [ Time Frame: Once per year for duration of the study ]
    Participants will be queried once per year as to their quality of life using the IBDQ-10.

  • Health status [ Time Frame: Once per year for duration of the study ]
    Participants will be queried once per year regarding health issues with pouch such as pouchitis, stricture and fistula. Participants will also be asked about presence of co-morbidities such as hypertension, diabetes and arthritis.

IPAA Patients
Patients who have had their IPAA procedures performed by Dr. Becker

Detailed Description:
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.
