Treatment

Diagnosis

Most often a gentle inspection of the anal region is required to see the cut or tear. If the Fistula is not visible on skin surface, additional test like Anoscopy might be prescribed. To better define the Fistula, the doctor may suggest an MRI or ultrasound as well.

Surgery

Diode laser is used to treat fistula at Pristyn Care. It is a day care procedure performed under general anesthesia in 30 minutes post which the patient can be discharged. Laser energy is delivered by radial fiber directly in the tissues to shrink the nodes from inside. Moreover, laser energy is used to reduce the blood supply nourishing the abnormal growth. Laser surgery prevents the occurrence or recurrence of a prolapse and seals the fistula. The laser procedure for anal fistula is a safe, relatively simple, minimally invasive, sphincter-saving procedure with a high chance of success.

In Our Doctor's Word

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

Dr. Sajeet Nayar

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

19 Years Experience

"Fistula, in general is very painful. You suffer a constant pain, irritation and smelly discharge around your anus. With time, not only your bowel movements but simple activities like sitting/ walking becomes difficult too. These days, I see not old but equally many men in middle and younger ages with similar symptoms. This is happening precisely because of today's inactive lifestyle, increasing dependence on junk food, stress and long sitting hours. The trend is dangerous. I highly encourage you have balanced, home cooked meal and walk at least thirty [30] minutes everyday. But, if a fistula has already formed, do not trust just home remedies/ OTC care. Meet a proctologist and seek proper guidance before it turns severe or risks forming infection or other anorectal diseases. Also, remember that while exercise and yoga can help in its prevention in the anorectal diseases, they will not help once the fistula has already formed. Infact, any excess movement/ or exercise during this time can cause friction, rupture, infection and way more pain than bearable. So, in my opinion, seek a proper medical attention at the earliest and let your doctor decide the best course of action."

Why Fistula Treatment is necessary?

Having anal fistula can be very problematic for a person. Not only does he/she have to bear the excruciating pain, but also have to deal with the regular drainage or pus. Leaving fistula untreated can cause complications, such as:

  • Fistula drainage or abscess- The infected tract will store fecal contents and mix with blood that will cause a foul-smelling fluid to drain from the fistula. The untreated fistula may result in another abscess formation and the fistula branches will develop making the problem more serious.
  • Sepsis- If not treated on time, fistula can lead to sepsis which is a life-threatening illness. The uncontrolled bacterial infection from the anal fistula may spread throughout the body and exhibit symptoms like fever, rashes, confusion, disorientation, rapid breathing, and abnormal heart rate.
  • Perforation- The infection in the anal region may spread to the colon or intestinal wall and result in trauma. The weakened part of the colon or intestinal wall gets ruptured due to this and causes perforation allowing intestinal material to leak into the abdominal cavity spreading the infection.
  • Peritonitis- It is an infectious and life-threatening condition where the membrane lining of abdominal wall gets inflamed due to bacterial infection present in the anal canal. It can also lead to shock, organ failure, and eventually death.

To prevent this from happening, it is crucial that you receive treatment for anal fistula without any delay. Contact a nearby Pristyn Care clinic and get diagnosed if you have symptoms like anorectal pain, fever, constipation, painful bowel movements, foul-smelling discharge, or rectal bleeding. Do not ignore these signs and consult with a professional medical expert in Ahmedabad as soon as possible.
