Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic gastrointestinal condition that is characterized by chronic gastrointestinal inflammation. The management of Crohn's disease is complex and requires skill, knowledge and experience with current advances in the field. Over the past several years, there have been a number of achievements and progress made in the care and management of this disorder. The diagnostic tools have greatly improved. The therapeutic armamentarium has expanded. The genetics of IBD has become more detailed and the role of the gut microbiome has been better defined. The evolution of biological agents has revolutionized the way we approach this disease. However, surgery is still required in more than 80% of patients with Crohn's disease (CD). This article aims to study the epidemiological, anatomical and therapeutic principles of surgical forms of CD.
