Restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis is the surgical treatment of choice for patients with medically refractory UC or UC with dysplasia. A well-known complication of surgery is the stricture of the pouch outlet (pouch-anal anastomosis) or pouch inlet (the junction of neoterminal ileum and pouch).

This procedure appears safe and effective in treating pouch outlet and inlet anastomosis and can avoid or delay surgery [39].
