So what is an anal fistula?

An anal fistula is a small channel that can develop between the end of the bowel and the skin near the anus.

An anal fistula can cause bleeding and discharge when passing stools – and can be painful.

Sometimes, an anal fistula can occur after surgery to drain an anal abscess.

What are the symptoms of an anal fistula?

  • Pain, which is usually constant, throbbing and worse when sitting down
  • Skin irritation around the anus, including swelling, redness and tenderness
  • Discharge of pus or blood
  • Constipation or pain associated with bowel movements
  • Fever

How to diagnose an anal fistula?

Usually, a clinical evaluation – including a digital rectal examination – is sufficient to diagnose an anal fistula, but some patients may require additional tests. Enough said.

As one of the best hospitals for fistula treatment in chennai, we like to keep investigations to a minimum.

Treatment of anal fistulas?

The type of surgery will depend on the position of your anal fistula.

The options include:

1. Laser Fistulotomy: This is used in 85-95% of cases and involves cutting open the whole length of the fistula.

Daycare surgery without pain and blood loss.

2. Seton techniques: A seton is a piece of thread which is left in the fistula tract.

This may be considered if you are at high risk of developing incontinence when the fistula crosses the sphincter muscles.

Sometimes several operations are necessary.

3. Fibrin glue: This is currently the only non-surgical treatment option for anal fistula.

However, the long-term results of this method are poor.

Initial success rates as high as 77% drop to 14% after 16 months.
