  Purpose

This multicenter, randomized, controlled trial was conducted by the Groupe d'Etude Thérapeutique des Affections Inflammatoires du tube Digestif (GETAID) to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the injection of fibrin glue in perianal fistulas tracts of patients with CD. The institutional Independent Ethics Committee of Marseille, France and of Liège, Belgium approved the protocol for each participating centers. Recruitment took place at 12 sites (11 in France and 1 in Belgium)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Remission [ Time Frame: 8 weeks after inclusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Clinical remission was defined as

    • the absence of any draining by fistula openings occurring spontaneously or after gentle finger compression ,
    • the absence of perianal pain
    • and the absence of perianal abscess.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Early Clinical Remission [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after Inclusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of perianal abcess [ Time Frame: During whole study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
