The Current Operation of RP and IPAA Indications

It follows that RP/IPAA is a suitable and preferred operation for patients where subtotal colectomy or TPC and Brooke ileostomy are not indicated. In general, these are patients who:

• are in good condition mentally and physically

• have had no previous small bowel (SB) resections

• have good anal sphincter function

• are without evidence of CD, such as perianal fistula (past or present)

• may be diagnosed of indeterminate colitis

• have no history of radiation to the abdomen

• may undergo RP with curative intent if colorectal cancer is present

• are particularly eligible if portal hypertension is present in association with UC (Kartheuser et al, 1996).
