What is Ileorectal Anastomosis?

Category: Surgeries


An ileorectal anastomosis is a surgical procedure occasionally used following a colectomy instead of creating a colostomy. The ileum is attached directly to the rectum and a pouch is created for stool to collect in order to be eliminated like a typical bowel movement.
