Brief Summary:
In patients with ulcerative or indeterminate colitis who undergo ileal pouch anal anastomosis and diverting loop ileostomy (IPAA) surgery* a short interval to loop ileostomy reversal will result in differences in complications and quality of life compared to a long interval to loop ileostomy reversal.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ulcerative Colitis Procedure: Early Procedure: Late Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Aim #1: To compare the Comprehensive Complication Index (CCI), the incidence of postoperative complications, including total number of complications per patient, percent of patients with complications, and total number of ostomy-related complications per patient among IPAA patients who have their ileostomy reversed after a short interval compared to a long interval.

Aim #2: To compare the short vs. long interval groups on measures of health-related quality of life (PROMIS) and IPAA functional outcomes

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Early ileostomy closure
Early ileostomy closure will be performed 7 to 12 days after with ileal j-pouch anal anastomosis (IPAA) and loop ileostomy (IPAA).
Procedure: Early
Early ileostomy closure

Active Comparator: Late ileostomy closure
Late ileostomy closure will be performed 8 - 12 weeks after IPAA.
Procedure: Late
Late ileostomy closure

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comprehensive Complication Index at 6 months after randomization. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    The CCI® calculator is an online tool to support the assessment of patients' overall morbidity. The Comprehensive Complication Index (CCI®) is based on the complication grading by Clavien-Dindo Classification and implements every occurred complication after an intervention. The overall morbidity is reflected on a scale from 0 (no complication) to 100 (death).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total number of postoperative complications per patient [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Post-operative complications. For example, surgical site infection, venous thromboembolism, lung or heart-related complications, etc.)

  2. Percent of patients with complications [ Time Frame: 1-2 month intervals after randomization through 6 months". ]
    Percentage of patients with one or more postoperative complication such as surgical site infection, venous thromboembolism, lung or heart-related complications, etc.

  3. Total number of stoma related complications per patient [ Time Frame: 1-2 month intervals after randomization through 6 months ]
    Examples: leakage, pain, retraction, prolapse, bleeding, etc.

  4. Health-related quality of life [ Time Frame: Once, at 6 months after ostomy closure surgery ]
    PROMIS questionnaire. This will be used to assess the study patient's overall health, quality of life, physical health, mental health, social activities, relationships, activities of daily living, emotional health, fatigue level, and pain.

  5. IPAA functional outcomes [ Time Frame: Once, at 6 months after ostomy closure surgery ]
    Daily stools, nightly stools, stool seepage, stool incontinence, anti-peristaltic medication use

  • Crohn's disease or suspected Crohn's disease
  • Prednisone dose > 20 mg per day (or equivalent other steroid dose) within 4 weeks of scheduled IPAA
  • Body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40 kg/m2

  • Individualized decision by the surgeon to exclude the patient based on sound surgical judgment
  • Pregnant patients and female patients who do not satisfy the standard of care requirements of participating centers for an elective surgical procedure.
  • Clinical assessment of patient after IPAA surgery indicates that patient is not suitable for early ileostomy reversal
  • Participation in another clinical trial within the last 30 days, or simultaneous participation in another clinical trial
  • Well-founded doubt about the patient's cooperation.
