Total coloproctectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis is the operation of choice for both ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis. The objective of this film is to demonstrate the benefits of mesenteric lengthening using vascular divisions in order to perform an ileoanal anastomosis after a total coloproctectomy.
