Total proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) surgery has become the surgical procedure of choice for chronic ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis. Since its introduction in 1978, the technique of ileal pouch-anal anastomosis has improved and is commonly performed. Although associated with low mortality, postsurgical complications are frequent with which the radiologist should be familiar. An understanding of surgical technique and postsurgical anatomy facilitates the diagnosis of these frequently encountered complications and governs their potential image-guided intervention.
