What is anal fissure?

Fissure is a crack around the anal region. It typically causes severe pain and bleeding during bowel movements. The reason for fissure is trauma inside the inner lining of the anus. A hard bowel is responsible for fissure but chronic diarrhea can also be the cause. Do not leave it untreated. Delay in diagnosis may lead to an acute fissure becoming a chronic one and become more difficult to treat. If anal fissure is not diagnosed, it may also allow other conditions to go undetected and untreated, such as serious infections or even cancer.

Treatment

Diagnosis

Most often a gentle inspection of the anal region is required to see the cut or tear. On the basis of location of the Fissure, its cause can be identified. Colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy and anoscopy may be recommended for further test.

Surgery

The laser technique is used to perform internal sphincterotomy for the treatment of anal fissure. In the technique, the laser is used to remove a small portion of the anal sphincter muscle to reduce the spasm and pressure. It improves the blood flow in that specific region and promotes faster healing. The function of anal sphincter muscles is well-preserved with this procedure with minimal bleeding. This surgery is very effective and has a success rate of more than 90% making it a perfect alternative for other invasive surgical techniques.

Laser surgery for anal fissure is preferred due to the following reasons:

  • Painless treatment
  • Faster relief and recovery
  • No need for hospitalization
  • No serious diet or physical restrictions
  • No wounds or scars that may cause infection
  • Suitable for patients of all age groups with negligible risks

What-Dr. Sajeet Nayar-Say-About-Anal Fissure-Treatment

Dr. Sajeet Nayar

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

19 Years Experience

"Many a times patients confuse fissure with piles. They keep taking home remedies or OTC medicines without knowing the exact cause. This often delays a proper diagnosis and eventually, the correct treatment. At times I have patients coming with severed conditions and combination of different anorectal diseases including grade 4 piles. This makes treatment difficult and recovery longer. So, as a rule of thumb, I will suggest do not trust home remedies/ OTC treatment for permanent cure of piles. If you experience continuous pain, bleeding and abscess, consult a good proctologist as soon as possible and let your doctor decide the best course of action."

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does fissure surgery cost in Ahmedabad?

The cost of fissure surgery in Ahmedabad can range between Rs. 34,500 to Rs. 41,500. This price range varies from one person to another based on several factors. To know the exact cost of fissure surgery in Ahmedabad, contact us.

What is a chronic fissure?

A fissure is called chronic when it has a cyclical history of intermittent healing and recurs after a specific period. Anal fissures usually become chronic when you don’t intervene to treat them properly.

Why do fissures keep returning?

If you often get constipated and pass dry, hard stools, you are more likely to suffer from fissures. The problem usually returns in people with a tight anal sphincter that interferes with smooth bowel movements and results in the formation of cracks or tears in the anal lining.

Can I get rid of anal fissures without surgery?

A doctor may recommend using stool softeners or a high-fiber diet with exercise to treat anal fissures without surgery. However, these methods are not 100% effective. The most appropriate choice is to consult with specialists like Pristyn Care doctors and undergo laser surgery.

Does Pristyn Care accept insurance for fissure treatment?

At Pristyn Care, we accept health insurance for the treatment of all anorectal diseases including fissures. However, it is critical that your insurance policy has coverage for the treatment. Our medical coordinators will verify whether your insurance covers the expense of laser fissure treatment in Ahmedabad or not.

Are fissures and hemorrhoids the same?

An anal fissure is a small tear or cut in the lining of the anus. Hemorrhoids are a group of inflamed and swollen tissues in the anal area. If you suspect having any of these anorectal diseases, get consulted by the best proctologists at your nearest location.

What can happen if anal fissures are left untreated?

If anal fissures are left untreated, they can cause severe constipation, fecal impaction, pain in the anal area, sentinel pile, difficulty to do daily activities and can form an anal fistula. To avoid these, you should not delay the anal fissure treatment.

Does anal fissure cause pus discharge?

Normally, the cracks and tears don’t cause pus discharge. But if the fissure site contacts infection, it can lead to pus discharge. Once the fissure gets infected, the condition can become chronic and quite painful. If not treated in time, the fissure can grow deeper and form a channel outside the skin.

How long does it take to complete laser fissure surgery?

Anorectal surgeons and proctologists who are experts in performing laser anal fissure surgery may take 15 to 45 minutes to complete it. But the duration of the laser surgery is subject to vary from one person to another due to the severity of the fissure and the presence of any underlying disease that can affect the surgical outcomes.

How long does it take to recover after laser fissure surgery?

Once you undergo anal fissure surgery, you may take 1-3 days to resume your daily activities. However, to recover and heal completely without any complications, you may take 3-4 months. If you wish to recover quickly, you should follow all the precautions as directed by the doctor.

What is the permanent cure for anal fissure?

Regardless of the severity of your anal fissure, surgery is considered to be the permanenet cure for anal fissure. In case of anal fissure surgery, the chances of succes is much higher than open surgical treatment.

Why is laser fissure surgery a better option?

Pristyn Care performs laser surgery for fissures to provide permanent relief to the patients. Unlike open surgery, laser technology allows doctors to treat fissures on an outpatient basis. The surgery is performed within 30-60 minutes and the patient can leave hospitals within 24-48 hours. Moreover, laser fissure surgery is a non-invasive procedure that does not involve deep incisions or stitches. The high-intensity laser beam targets the damaged tissues and increases the blood flow that promotes regeneration of epithelial tissue for proper healing of the fissure. The laser technique gives better control over the surgery and minimizes the risks and complications.

Being a non-invasive procedure, it doesn’t cause bleeding, blood clots, or infection during or after the surgery, increasing the chances of success. The conventional treatment methods had a higher chance of post-operative complications and needed longer for recovery. With laser surgery, no wounds or scars are left which reduces the 2-3 weeks of recovery to 2-5 days. That’s why laser surgery is preferred by doctors and patients for the treatment of fissures in Ahmedabad.

What is the difference between anal fissure and anal fistula?

Anal fissure and anal fistula are two very common anorectal diseases. An anal fissure is a condition where an tear or a crack appearns in the skin near the anus. On the other hand, anal fistulas are tube-like passages that appears in the anal canal or the inner rectum. Most anal fissures are like paper cuts and ususally get healed within a few weeks. If left untreated, both anal fissure and anal fistula can develop into worse conditions. Untreated fistulas can even branch off into multiple openings.

The symptoms exhibited by both the conditions are very similar to each other. Pain in the anal area, discomfort while seating at the toilet seat and pain while passing a bowel movement, and blood in stools are some of the common symptoms for both anal fissure and anal fistula. But anal fistulas may also include pus secretion from the anal area, an extra opening near the anus or an increase in diarrhea.

Although different in nature, both the conditions require medical intervention. An anal fissure or anal fistula can be treated by a proctologist or an anorectal/ colorectal surgeon. At initial stages, both the diseases can be managed with medicines. But to treat the condition permanently, one would require a surgical approach, which can be done either through open surgery or laser surgery.
