For patients with recalcitrant ulcerative colitis or indeterminate colitis, surgical intervention with restorative proctocolectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) has become the standard of therapy. The most common complication after IPAA is pouchitis, which may manifest with pouch related symptoms (PRS) such as increased bowel frequency, abdominal pain, pelvic pain, urgency, or incontinence, necessitating use of adjunctive pharmacotherapies for symptom control. We evaluated the prevalence of opioid-, NSAID-, and probiotic-use among IPAA patients with and without PRS.

Objectives: Colon manometry (CM) has emerged as a tool to evaluate children with defecation problems. Our aim was to evaluate the utility of CM in guiding therapy and predicting surgery in pediatric constipation. Methods: Retrospective review of children undergoing CM for 4 indications: constipation, fecal incontinence, postsurgical evaluation and chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction. Variables included age, sex, follow-up, and CM parameters: gastrocolonic response (GC) and quality/quantity of high-amplitude propagating contractions (HAPCs). Interventions: medical, surgical or no intervention. Outcomes: response to c...

ConclusionModified Y-shaper pouch is suitable for short, dilated ureters. Longitudinal orientation of the pouch facilitates ileo-urethral anastomosis, especially with short mesentery. Long-term follow-up for direct uretero-ileal anastomosis did not show deterioration of the renal function.

Pelvic floor disorders (PFD) including stress urinary incontinence (SUI), overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms, anal incontinence (AI), pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and sexual dysfunction affect millions of women throughout the world. Studies have shown that 11%-35.5% of women suffer from PFD ’s globally [1,2]. In developed countries, 25% of women experience at least one or more PFD’s [3]. Evidence from these countries shows that advancing age, parity, obesity and vaginal birth are common risk factors of PFD’s.
