Abstract

Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) occurs in 2%-8% of patients who suffer from ulcerative colitis (UC). For patients who require colectomy, ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) or ileorectal anastomosis (IRA) is employed to preserve continence.We evaluated the outcomes after IPAA and IRA for patients with UC-PSC, using patients with UC but without PSC as controls (UC-only group).
