## Figure 2.
A. Box-and-whiskers plots of wall thickness at the level of ileo-colonic anastomosis
according to different Rutgeerts score. The boxes at each score extend from the 25^{th }percentile (x_{[25]}) to the 75^{th }percentile (x_{[75]}) [i.e., the interquartile range (IQ)]; the lines inside the boxes represent the median
values. The line emerging from the boxes (i.e., the "whiskers") extend to the upper
and lower adjacent values. The upper adjacent value is defined as the largest data
point ≤x_{[75] }+ 1.5 × IQ, and the lower adjacent value is defined as the smallest data point ≥x_{[25] }- 1.5 × IQ. Observed values more extreme than the adjacent values, if any, are individually
plotted (circles). * p < 0.001 score 1 vs score 0, 2-4. The horizontal line indicates
the cut-off value of 3.5 mm. B. Box-and-whiskers plots of extension of intramural lesion at the level of neo-terminal
ileum according different Rutgeerts score. The boxes at each time unit extend from the 25^{th }percentile (x_{[25]}) to the 75^{th }percentile (x_{[75]}) [i.e., the interquartile range (IQ)]; the lines inside the boxes represent the median
values. The line emerging from the boxes (i.e., the "whiskers") extend to the upper
and lower adjacent values. The upper adjacent value is defined as the largest data
point ≤x_{[75] }+ 1.5 × IQ, and the lower adjacent value is defined as the smallest data point ≥x_{[25] }- 1.5 × IQ. Observed values more extreme than the adjacent values, if any, are individually
plotted (circles). * p < 0.001 score 1 vs score 4, ** p = 0.03 score 1 vs score 2,
*** p = 0.04 score 1 vs score 3
