Penetrating or stricturing diseases are the major determinants of time to first and repeat resection surgery in Crohn's disease


Pittet, Valerie; Rogler, Gerhard; Michetti, Pierre; Fournier, Nicolas; Vader, John-Paul; Schoepfer, Alain; Mottet, Christian; Burnand, Bernard; Froehlich, Florian (2013). Penetrating or stricturing diseases are the major determinants of time to first and repeat resection surgery in Crohn's disease. Digestion, 87(3):212-221.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: About 80% of patients with Crohn's disease (CD) require bowel resection and up to 65% will undergo a second resection within 10 years. This study reports clinical risk factors for resection surgery (RS) and repeat RS.
METHODS: Retrospective cohort study, using data from patients included in the Swiss Inflammatory Bowel Disease Cohort. Cox regression analyses were performed to estimate rates of initial and repeated RS.
RESULTS: Out of 1,138 CD cohort patients, 417 (36.6%) had already undergone RS at the time of inclusion. Kaplan-Meier curves showed that the probability of being free of RS was 65% after 10 years, 42% after 20 years, and 23% after 40 years. Perianal involvement (PA) did not modify this probability to a significant extent. The main adjusted risk factors for RS were smoking at diagnosis (hazard ratio (HR) = 1.33; p = 0.006), stricturing with vs. without PA (HR = 4.91 vs. 4.11; p < 0.001) or penetrating disease with vs. without PA (HR = 3.53 vs. 4.58; p < 0.001). The risk factor for repeat RS was penetrating disease with vs. without PA (HR = 3.17 vs. 2.24; p < 0.05).
CONCLUSION: The risk of RS was confirmed to be very high for CD in our cohort. Smoking status at diagnosis, but mostly penetrating and stricturing diseases increase the risk of RS.
