The purpose of this study is to investigate a new technique: Close Rectal Dissection (CRD) as restorative surgery for Ulcerative Colitis patients: the Close Rectal Ileo Pouch Anal Anastomo...
The purpose of this study is to test whether Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) is a safe and effective treatment for people who have Ulcerative Colitis and have had an ileal pouch anastomo...
This is an open label trail to test the hypothesize that serum bovine immunoglobulin protein isolate (SBI) will improve the nutritional status and quality of life (QOL) of patients with an...
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 ...
Total proctocolectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis is the surgical treatment of choice for patients with medically refractory ulcerative colitis, ulcerative colitis with dysplasia or c...
Revisional and reconstructive surgery for IPAA is rare given the high success of pouch surgery for chronic ulcerative colitis. Limited data exist on both surgical and functional outcomes in patients w...
An IPAA is the preferred operative approach for restoration of intestinal continuity in patients with ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis. As minimally invasive approaches have becom...

A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and blocks its interaction with endogenous TNF RECEPTORS to modulate INFLAMMATION. It is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; CROHN'S DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
A surgical procedure involving the excision of the COLON and RECTUM and the formation of an ILEOANAL RESERVOIR (pouch). In patients with intestinal diseases, such as ulcerative colitis, this procedure avoids the need for an OSTOMY by allowing for transanal defecation.
