BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate whether stapler size used at ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) influences outcomes. METHODS: Data of patients undergoing stapled IPAA (1983-2007) were obtained. Differences between groups A (stapler size 28-29 mm) and B (31-33 mm) for pre- and perioperative factors, stricture, leak, quality of life (QOL), and function were compared. Associations between stapler size and stricture or leak were assessed with a multivariable Cox model. RESULTS: Groups A (n = 1,221) and B (n = 899) had comparable age, diagnosis, body mass index (BMI), and albumin level. Group B had more males (P < .001) but fewer patients with ileostomy (P < .001). There was no significant difference in rates of leak (4.5% vs 6.2%, P = .08) or stricture (1.9% vs 2.7%, P = .1) for groups A and B. On multivariate analysis, female gender was associated with stricture, while greater BMI and male gender were associated with leak. Group A had greater urgency at 1 year and nighttime pad use at 15 years. The other determinants of function and QOL were similar. CONCLUSIONS: There was no significant association between the size of stapler used at IPAA and long-term complications.
