Patients with enterocutaneous fistula can almost always be cured nowadays, and if the right steps are adopted hospital death rarely occurs. A multidisciplinary approach is essential but investigating the fistula is unimportant in the early stages of management. The management is heavily influenced by the underlying aetiology and the anatomical classification of the fistula, which together determine the likelihood of resolution without surgical intervention. The aim of the study was to review the rationale and evidence basis behind the current management strategy of enterocutaneous fistula.
