Dysplasia in the ileoanal pouch or the rectal cuff is a very rare complication after IPAA [84, 85]. Reported potential risk factors are cancer or dysplasia in the colectomy specimen, chronic pouchitis, and the time after IPAA [86].

Of note, in our pouch clinic, out of 105 patients screened of which 17% had diagnosed dysplasia or cancer in the colectomy specimen, none had cancer or dysplasia in the pouch or rectal cuff after a mean follow-up of 57 months (range 1-258) post IPAA.
