Sphincter Preservation in Surgery for Inflammatory Large-Bowel Disease
Recently the therapy of inflammatory large-bowel disease has changed. This is because of several important innovations in the operative treatment and better medical management. Without doubt the pelvic pouch with ileoanal anastomosis procedure after proctocolectomy is of great importance [1, 3, 14, 15, 18]. This continence-preserving operation has been carried out at our clinic since 1987. Based on a review of the literature and our own very limited experience, we will attempt to give some guidelines for the surgical therapy of inflammatory large-bowel disease. The aim of our treatment concept is to give the patient an optimum chance of preserving continence and to improve the results.
