Title of presentation: Long-term morbidity and functional outcome (Symposium: Ulcerative colitis)

Learning objectives: Define the long term functional outcome following restorative proctocolectomy (J-pouch) for mucosal ulcerative colitis; Evaluate the long term morbidity including septic complications and pouchitis following restorative proctocoletcomy (J-pouch).

Clinical/research background

My research and clinical interests in surgery for mucosal ulcerative colitis have included laparoscopy, pouch surgery in the obese, pouch surgery in the elderly, re-operative pouch surgery, and treatment of ileal pouch anal anastomotic complications.
