Abstract: In patients with UC, even in remission, there is a measurable impairment of QOL, which increases with the severity of disease. Operated patients have a QOL that is comparable to that of patients in remission or with mild disease, and proctocolectomy with ileo-anal anastomosis may restore an acceptable QOL in patients with moderate/severe UC.
