Project Description

This animation was created in order to clearly depict the process of creating a j-pouch for patients undergoing a complete colectomy. Care was taken to present this procedure in a positive light, as patients with chronic ulcerative colitis will often have a marked improvement in their quality of life. Children frequently must undergo this procedure as well, thus they were included in the ultimate audience considerations.
