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

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 is used to perform internal sphincterotomy. In this technique, laser energy radial emitting user probe is inserted into the fistulous tract which destroys fistula epithelium and obliterates the rest of the fistula channel/ tract. This procedure is almost bloodless and the surgeon has good control over the operation site. Additionally, the chronic fibrosed scar is debrided with the laser. This prevents any long term discomfort and enables a quicker recovery. Laser techniques is preferred over the open surgery for Anal Fistula due to following reasons:-

  • Quick and Painless Treatment

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."
