In brief: These fistulas

Are amongst the most difficult to treat and very rarely respond to medical therapy (that is, if you have Crohn's disease).
It almost always requires surgery, and the surgical repair can be difficult and is not always successful. I'd recommend seeing an accomplished surgeon with this kind of experience.
