Pouchitis is inflammation that occurs in the lining of a pouch that develops during surgery to treat ulcerative colitis or certain other diseases. Many people with ulcerative colitis must have their diseased colon removed and reconnected using a procedure called ileoanal anastomosis (J-pocket) surgery. Pouchitis Treatment in Nizamabad
In J-pocket surgery, surgeons use the end of the small intestine (ileum) to create a pocket in the shape of a letter J. The bag attaches internally to the area just above the anus to contain waste before it is disposed of.
Pouchitis is a complication of J-pocket surgery. It occurs in about a quarter to almost half of the people who have the procedure. Pouchitis Treatment in Nizamabad
