Abstract

This article discusses the use of endoscopy in patients with Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis in the postoperative setting. Endoscopy is the most sensitive and validated tool available in the diagnosis of recurrence of Crohn disease in the postoperative setting. It is also the most effective diagnostic modality available for evaluating complications of pouch anatomy in patients with ulcerative colitis. In addition to diagnosis, management postoperatively can be determined through endoscopy.
