The definitions of partial or complete response were based on the judgment of the treatment physician, with a retrospective measurement made using the Harvey-Bradshaw index. There has even been a case described of an ECF that resolved with infliximab in a patient who did not have CD 8. Am J Surg ; In recent years, advances in postoperative care and major surgical procedures rise have further increased the degree of complexity and the number of cases, which justifies further study of this pathology.

The importance of nutritional support for successful treatment in a coordinated way, using parenteral and enteral route, either by naso-jejunal tube, jejunostomy or fistuloclysis, is clear. Infliximab led to complete closure in 1 of 9 patients with spontaneous fistula and 2 of 7 patients with postoperative fistulas.

J Crohns Colitis ;4: Management of intestinal fistulas. There is a retrospective Canadian study with more than 50 patients in which the authors concluded that surgery was the best option in these patients The definitions of partial or complete response were based on the treating physician’s judgment. Sepsis, multiple lesions and those located in open abdomen have proven negative prognostic factors in this study. Median of abdominal surgeries prior fistula appearance was 2 range 1 to In Campos ACL ed.

The low response rate in our study was notable, both for spontaneous and postoperative ECF when treated with antibiotics These data may be explained by the fact that ECF has a pathophysiology distinct from perianal fistulas.

New methods have been proposed in order to block intestinal flow: Fourteen out of fistulized patients were initially operated, 4 of them electively, while surgery for peritonitis was indicated in the remaining Am Surg ; Ostomy was performed to 4 of them, leaving definitive reconstruction for further surgery.


It could therefore be enterocutanead as a treatment strategy prior to surgery in a select group of patients.

Discussion In the early 60’s, Chapman et al. First, it should be pointed out that fistula closure has been achieved fisyulas some cases, after this time period, with the assistance of innovative treatments, such as sub-atmospheric pressure [2] – [6]. The advantages of enteral over parenteral nutrition PN as regards physiological aspects, less morbidity, and cost reduction are widely known [8] – [9] However in complex cases, PN is difficult to avoid.

They are rare, 0. Enterocutaneous fistulas and Crohn’s disease: Sepsis, multiple lesions and abdominal wall defect were negatives prognoses factors. There is little experience with biological drugs in these types of fistulas, but their use is reasonable, especially in patients with moderate-severe disease activity.

Later, with the arrival of these drugs, 24 of the 26 patients in our study started treatment with anti-TNF agents due to the poor response to previous treatments. Inflamm Bowel Dis ; For a long time, it has been convention to wait 4 and 6 weeks for a spontaneous resolution and then, in case of persistence, to proceed with reconstructive surgery [1].

Logistic regression test did not show meaningful results in any variable probably due to the low number of events deaths recorded in the sample. The results of these studies will help us learn the true efficacy of biological therapies in these patients 9.

They rarely respond to medical treatment and ultimately require surgical treatment 2. Despite the known limitations of this type of study, we can conclude that although the majority of patients required surgery as the definitive treatment, anti-TNF drugs improved fistula output in an acceptable percentage of patients.

Based on location, they can be divided into: Combined approach with biologics and surgery for enterocutaneous fistulas in Crohn’s disease. During this period 6 patients died 5. Conservative treatment fsitulas be extended several weeks, if necessary, to detect a halting in the wound healing process and until achieve a complete patient clinical and nutritional recovery.


The data are very limited and consist primarily of small case series.

In this series, as in others [24], sepsis, multiple lesions and abdominal wall defects have been statistically significant mortality factors. Most frequent primary pathologies were colorectal neoplasia, diverticulitis, abdominal trauma, appendicitis and hernia, of which 62 Adalimumab – an effective and promising treatment for patients with fistulizing Crohn’s disease: Complete resolution of enterocolic fistulas with infliximab. All patients were recruited in the following tertiary hospital centers: University of Buenos Aires.

Forty-six presented sepsis during conservative treatment, mainly due to catheter contamination and respiratory disease. Terminally -ill patients and lesions coexisting with biliopancreatic fistula were excluded.

We presented here, prestigious physicians who complete our team and we summarize our experience in some of the most representative studies. All patients with a documented history of CD who developed an ECF during their clinical progress enterofutaneas to were included retrospectively. They originate in the ileum or colon and drain in the skin through the ostomy scar.

Dig Surg ; ECF was spontaneous in Prospective study of immunological factors in non-inflammatory bowel disease enterocutaneous fistulas. The results of these series, consistent with other studies [6] [7], support this procedure in patients with acute abdomen and those who, maintaining a good general condition, developed early fistulas.
