Eighteen patients were included in the study. The perioperative variables are reported in Figure 1.
The median follow-up time was 29.5 months (range 0-204), and the median time to ECF closure was 104 days (24-954), although a clinical remission (defined as an ECG non requiring hospitalization) was obtained after a median time of 41 days (15-768). The comparison of the rates of ECF closure between subgroups of patients over the follow-up are reported in Figure 2 and 3.
Although postoperative ECF represents a challenging complication in CD, the present study shows that a complete closure is obtainable in the long-term in all patients treated in a referral centre.
