Surgical treatment for Crohn's disease



Surgical treatment for Crohn's disease



Acta Medica Okayama 49(2): 113-115



The medical records of 16 consecutive patients with Crohn's disease surgically treated in our department from 1978 to 1993 were retrospectively reviewed. The indication for surgery was obstructive symptoms due to Crohn's strictures that were unresponsive to conservative therapy. The types of operations performed were classified into five categories. Nine patients (56.3%) had small bowel resection only, 4 (25.0%) underwent an ileocolonic resection, 1 (6.3%) had a total colectomy, 1 (6.3%) had Mile's operation and 1 (6.3%) had subtotal gastrectomy with gastrojejunostomy and antral mucosectomy. Of these 16 patients, 13 (81.3%) had resection with a single anastomosis and strictureplasty was concomitantly performed in only 2 cases (12.5%). Crohn's disease recurred in 3 patients (18.8%), 1 of whom required a second operation.
