Perianal Fistula clinical trials at UC Health
1 research study open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This study will compare healing and surgical outcomes in patients with chronic perianal disease treated with Adipose-derived Stem Cells (ASCs) to outcomes in patients treated in traditional surgical techniques without ASCs. The study will perform retrospective medical record analysis to clinically characterize patients that have undergone these surgical procedures and compare follow-up data and disease status to determine efficacy of treatment with ASCs compared to similar treatments without the use of ASCs. This will help determine overall efficacy of the treatment as well as determine patient characteristics that may predict treatment success. The study will also prospectively recruit patients with perianal disease that are planning to receive treatment with ASCs, and analyze their outcomes in the same way. Medical record review of outcomes in patients with perianal disease that received treatment with ASCs compared to those that did not will determine efficacy of this procedure.
