Disability and health care use in patients with Crohn's disease : a spouse control study.
Studies reported from tertiary referral centers suggest that patients with Crohn's disease (CD) have a high rate of long-term disability.
This study investigated whether this is true for less selected patient groups.
106 outpatients who were diagnosed to have had CD between 1974 and 1985 were invited with their partners (n=83) for a structured interview that addressed issues of lifestyle and quality of life.
In addition, patient and insurance records were reviewed to compare the use of health care services and work disability of patients with CD with those of their partners.
