Any Success with Enterocutaneous Fistula

Has anyone had any success with closing an enterocutaneous fistula with any of the following? Surgery, Porcine Plug, octreotide, or anything else?

I've had one since 2009, and would dearly love to get rid of it

Hi jayann,
Sorry I missed your thread.

It's been a long time since my last fistula. I've only had one enterocutaneous fistula.
Mine needed surgery.

I'm assuming yours is a result of Crohn's? What meds are you currently taking?
I know some people have had success closing fistulas with Remicade.

Sending you my support. I understand the frustration.
