Abstract

LIAN, Lei  and  SHEN, Bo. Closure of leak at the tip of the "J" after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis using a novel over-the-scope clipping system. J. Coloproctol. (Rio J.) [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.2, pp.120-123. ISSN 2317-6423.  https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jcol.2014.03.003.

OBJECTIVE:

leaks from the body or the tip of the J-pouch can occur after restorative proctocolecotmy. Although it may follow an indolent clinical course, it often requires surgical repair or pouch revision. Here we describe a novel endoscopic approach to close the leak at the tip of the J pouch.

DESIGN:

pouchoscopy was performed under sedation and endoscopic over-the-scope clipping system was used for the management of a leak from the tip of a J-pouch.

RESULTS:

under sedation, a pouchoscopy was performed and the deep tip of "J" leak was detected with a guidewire, along with water-contrasted pouchogram. The contained cavity from the leak was cleaned with hydrogen peroxide and 50% dextrose. Debridement of the epithelialized mouth of the leak was performed with an endoscopic cytology brush. Then endoscopic over-the-scope clipping system was used and the leak defect was completely closed. There was no bleeding or perforation. The entire procedure took 25 min. The patient continued to do well and reported resolution of the low back pain symptom.

CONCLUSION:

we reported the first case in the literature that a leak from the tip of a J-pouch was endoscopically occluded using a novel over-the-scope clipping system.
