Perianal fistulas and abscesses are the most common complications of perianal Crohn’s disease. Up to 52% of patients with perianal CD present with perianal fistulas. From the patients´ perspective, Crohn´s perianal fistulas severely impact overall QoL, sexual relationships, social and work life. The ultimate treatment goal for CPF is to achieve sustained fistula closure while preserving faecal continence.
By developing an educational toolkit about fistula closure as achievable treatment goal you will help to change goal setting in treatment of CPAF from managing symptoms towards fistula closure.
