Abstract

Short-term outcomes of the first 100 laparoscopic IPAA procedures case matched with 200 open IPAA controls are reported. We documented enhanced postoperative recovery among the laparoscopic patients with no differences compared with open controls in terms of postoperative morbidity and mortality. Laparoscopic IPAA is feasible and safe and confers early outcome advantages after ileo-anal anastomosis.
