Core Tip Treatment of anal fistulas in Crohn’s disease is a challenging clinical problem. Although several studies have been published, a consensus on treatment strategy has not yet been achieved. Clinical experience suggests that treatment should be determined according to the type and clinical behavior of the fistula. Asymptomatic fistulas should not be treated, while symptomatic ones could benefit from combined medical and surgical treatment. Surgery can vary from simple drainage and setonage, to more complex and sophisticated procedures. The overall aim of the surgical procedures is fistula healing without compromising fecal continence.
