abstract

  • The risk of developing ileal pouch mucosa adenocarcinoma appears low. However, increasing reports of these cancers are concerning as most patients present with advanced disease after many years. Patients with a previous history of dysplasia/cancer may be at increased risk. We believe surveillance after IPAA should include the anal transition zone and the ileal pouch mucosa. The establishment of expert consensus guidelines on pouch surveillance should be considered in the near future.
