Functional assessment of pelvic pouch procedures for FAP is not different from that of UC and consists of clinical, manometric and radiologic investigations. Ileo-rectal anastomosis and pelvic pouch operation are equally effective for the disease, but function is still questionable after restorative proctocolectomy. Based on a personal series of 43 patients, relevant technical aspects influencing functional results are discussed and guidelines for a correct follow-up of these patients are presented.
