Summary of "Predictors of long-term outcomes of radiologically defined perianal fistulizing Crohn's disease treated with antitumor necrosis factor-alpha agents based on Parks' classification."

Perianal fistulizing Crohn's disease (PFCD) leads to significant disability. Data assessing healing of complex PFCD based on pelvic MRI using Parks' classification remains sparse. We aimed to assess the frequency of closure of fistula tract on MRI in patients treated with antitumor necrosis factor alpha antagonists and identify predictors of poor response.
