Abstract

Restorative total proctocolectomy with J-pouch is a procedure used for children with severe ulcerative colitis or premalignant conditions like familial polyposis. The classic approach requires a laparotomy incision. Most published minimally invasive techniques still require a somewhat smaller incision to complete the procedure. We present a completely minimally invasive approach to accomplish the same goal, using a combined laparoscopic and endorectal technique and present our current clinical results with this method.
