An ileal pouch is usually reconstructed as an alternative to a neorectum after a total proctocolectomy for ulcerative colitis (UC). However, the real defecatory function of an ileal pouch is uncertain. This study was designed to analyze the functional and clinical outcomes after a proctocolectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for UC using fecoflowmetry (FFM). Sixteen patients who underwent IPAA for UC between 1990 and 2005 were studied. They were evaluated by FFM, together with Kelly's clinical score (KCS), and anorectal manometric assessments were also performed. FFM showed that the fecoflow pattern (FFP) of 14 patients (87%) was the block type and of 2 patients (13%) was the segmental type. The clinical score and tolerance volume showed no improvement 1 year or more after IPAA. However, the value of the maximum fecal stream flow rate (Fmax) improved with time. FFM shows that the defecatory function improved after IPAA, and it may therefore contribute to a good long-term outcome after the surgery.
