Abstract: Duodenal compression by the superior mesenteric artery following total proctocolectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis is a rare occurrence. Previous surgical treatment involved duodenal division. The aim of this report was to describe a case with such a complication and to discuss an operative alternative. Case report. Mobilization of the duodenum from its retroperitoneal attachments, without transection and reanastomosis, allowed the free passage of gas through the duodenum and recovery for the patient. This case report suggests that a more conservative approach may be successful in managing this complication.
