Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract. We aimed to determine factors that frequently lead to surgery in patients with Crohn’s disease. In this retrospective study, 229 patients with established Crohn’s disease between 2014 and 2021 were enrolled. Univariate analysis was used to evaluate risk factors associated with surgery. 31% underwent surgery during follow-up. Independent risk factors associated with surgery in Crohn’s disease patients were: stricturing disease (p < 0.001), penetrating disease (p < 0.001), ileal localization (p < 0.001), male gender (p = 0,004) and smoking habit (p = 0.009).

Conclusion: For Crohn’s disease patients with m factors predictive for surgery early intensive therapy is required.
