In this video, Baljit Singh speaks about the recorded data about pouches from 2012 to 2017.
Pouch surgery is not a common surgery within the scope of colorectal surgery. Of the approximately 400 surgeons who have ever performed this surgery, only 26 have performed more than 15 operations.
The majority of them, 126, have only performed one pouch surgery.
The ratio of complications and readmission is high in this surgery.
The most common diagnosis of patients having primary ileoanal pouch surgery is ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis.
In recent years there has been a variation in the use of the different Pouch designs. Currently almost 100% of the pouch made are J-Pouch.
