Up to date, a sure cure for Crohn's fistula does not known and the fistula recurrence rate is high. On 15 October 2008, orphan designation was granted by Korea FDA for human adipose-derived stem cell (ADIPOPLUS) for the treatment of Crohn's fistula. In this study, patients are given injection of ADIPOPLUS in fistula site and followed for 8 weeks to evaluate the safety and efficacy.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of adalimumab for treatment of patients with moderate to severe Crohn's Disease (CD) and to measure the effects of treatment on patient ...
Anal fistulae are a difficult problem to treat. The optimal treatment for fistula involving the anal sphincter is unclear. Two standardly used methods of treatment are the ligation of in...
The purpose of this study is to determine safety and efficacy of allogenic eASCs (expanded adult stem cells) for the treatment of recto-vaginal fistula in patients with Crohn´s disease.
Anal fistula is defined as an abnormal communication between the anal canal and the perianal skin. Adipose-derived stem cells are a new therapy for the closure of these fistulas. This stud...
The study aimed to review, consolidate, and analyze the findings of studies investigating the efficacy of anal fistula plugs (AFPs) in treating fistula-in-ano in Crohn's patients.
The incidence of rectovaginal fistula in women with Crohn's disease has been reported to be 3-10 %. Although rectovaginal fistulas can be managed medically and surgically, they have high rates of rec...
Around one-third of patients with Crohn's disease are affected by Crohn's fistula-in-ano (pCD). It typically follows a chronic course and patients undergo long-term medical and surgical therapy. We se...
Despite measures taken to control traditional risk factors like increased rectal disease activity, anorectal stenosis, and, to a lesser extent, obesity, rates of poor outcomes after rectovaginal fistu...
Coronary artery fistula is a rare anomaly; large fistulae may result in myocardial ischemia from coronary steal. We present the case of a 73-year-old male who presented with exertional angina; imaging...
An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
An abnormal anatomical passage that connects the VAGINA to other organs, such as the bladder (VESICOVAGINAL FISTULA) or the rectum (RECTOVAGINAL FISTULA).
A chronic transmural inflammation that may involve any part of the DIGESTIVE TRACT from MOUTH to ANUS, mostly found in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the COLON. In Crohn disease, the inflammation, extending through the intestinal wall from the MUCOSA to the serosa, is characteristically asymmetric and segmental. Epithelioid GRANULOMAS may be seen in some patients.
A condition characterized by persistent or recurrent labial enlargement, ORAL ULCER, and other orofacial manifestations in the absence of identifiable CROHN DISEASE; or SARCOIDOSIS. There is no consensus on whether orofacial granulomatosis is a distinct clinical disorder or an initial presentation of Crohn disease.
A fistula between the maxillary sinus and the oral cavity.
Crohn's Disease (CD)
Crohn’s disease (CD) is a long-term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system. Inflammation can affect any part of the digestive system, from the mouth to the back passage, but most commonly occurs in the last s...
