What is Anal Fistula?

An anal fistula is an abnormal channel that forms between the anal canal and the perianal skin. A fistula usually occurs when the outer skin is infected abscess forms around it. Pus starts to gather in the abscess and when it drains, a channel is left behind. The primary cause of anal fistula is a recurring abscess which deepens the tract gradually until a complete tunnel is formed with one of its end inside the anal canal and the other end on the outer skin near the anus. 

If you think that you have a fistula, get in touch with Pristyn Care and undergo fistula laser surgery to resolve the problem in a minimally invasive and painless manner.

Treatment

Diagnosis

To get properly diagnosed, it is important that you consult an expert fistula doctor in Guwahati. The doctor will first perform a physical examination to check the tract and other symptoms of anal fistula. In some cases, the fistula can be easily spotted when the fluid or blood is draining from it. In other cases, there is a possibility that the tract will heal shortly and there won’t be oozing in the anal region. In such a scenario, the doctor will perform either a colonoscopy or X-ray to identify the fistula and also check if the fistula is branched.

The doctor will recommend the most appropriate treatment method only after an accurate diagnosis.

Surgery

A fistula doesn’t heal on its own and it can’t be cured using medications as well. The best treatment method for this disease is undergoing anal fistula surgery also known as fistulotomy. There are various techniques available to close the fistula tract effectively. But laser fistula surgery is the most efficient technique. It involves using a laser probe that is inserted into the fistula tract until it reaches the other end. The laser probe is extracted gradually while it emits heat energy and ablates the fistula tract.

The entire procedure is safe, quick, painless, and takes only about 30-45 minutes to complete. It is a minimally invasive surgery, hence, the recovery is also short. You can get in touch with Pristyn Care and undergo fistula laser surgery in Guwahati under the care of expert doctors.

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 is it important to seek proper fistula treatment?

An anal fistula is a very problematic disease and it should not be left untreated under any circumstances. If you don’t seek help from a medical professional, the disease can cause the following complications:

  • The infection from the fistula can spread through the anal canal and may end up creating branches of the fistula tract. If this happens, it will be more difficult to treat the branched fistula.
  • The bacterial infection from the fistula can spread to organs and may cause tissue death leading to organ damage or shock.
  • Perforation is another major risk of leaving fistula untreated. The infection has a chance of spreading to the abdominal wall and the weak part of the wall may get ruptured. Due to this, the intestinal fluid will leak into the abdominal cavity and you will need immediate medical care.
  • Peritonitis is another life-threatening complication of anal fistula. The bacterial infection causes inflammation in the abdominal wall that may lead to organ failure or death.
  • An anal fistula can also increase the risk of anal cancer if left untreated for a long time.

In most cases, an anal fistula can lead to severe health issues and it may be fatal for the patient. That is why you should pay attention to the symptoms and consult an expert to get advanced fistula treatment in Guwahati.
