Patients who undergo ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) after colectomy for ulcerative colitis (UC) occasionally have neoplasia in the IPAA. Patients with evidence of dysplasia or carcinoma in the colorectal specimen may have an increased risk of such neoplasia. A surveillance program has been suggested. The aims of this study were to evaluate the outcomes of surveillance of a large patient cohort, and to investigate the prevalences of neoplasia in the ileal pouch mucosa and in the anal transitional zone (ATZ).
