418-422

Background and aim: Glasgow prognostic score is a systemic inflammatory-based score. The aim of this study was to determine whether the Glasgow prognostic score was a useful predictor of short-term outcomes in patients who undergo total proctocolectomy for ulcerative colitis. Methods: eighty ulcerative colitis patients who underwent a total proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis or permanent end ileostomy from June 2014 to March 2020 were retrospectively analyzed. Patients were divided into a lower Glasgow prognostic score group and a higher Glasgow prognostic score group. Results: postoperative infectious complication occurred more frequently in the higher Glasgow prognostic score group (8.3 % vs 29.5 %, p = 0.018). According to the univariate and multivariate analysis, only a higher Glasgow prognostic score was associated with an increased risk of postoperative infectious complication (OR: 5.478, 95 % CI: 1.236-24.279). Conclusion: Glasgow prognostic score is a simple and useful indicator of postoperative infectious complications.
