A total proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis removes the entire colon and rectum while preserving the anal sphincter and, hence, normal bowel function and fecal continence. It is technically challenging as it involves dissection involving all four abdominal quadrants and pelvis. The optimal laparoscopic approach has not been established. Here we present a video demonstration of our safe and feasible technique for laparoscopic TPC with IPAA.
