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 fissures 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 becoming more difficult to treat. If the 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

Anal fissures often heal within 8 weeks. If it doesn’t, then the doctor will ask for your medical history and the symptoms. Often the doctor can see the tear clearly without any tests. If it is not visible, a physical or rectal examination is recommended of the area around the anus for accurate diagnosis. The rectal examination is done through an anoscope. It is inserted in the rectum to inspect the anal canal and see the tear clearly. The tests are usually recommended after the doctor reviews your medical history and suspects that there may be an underlying condition.

Procedure

The treatment of anal fissure is possible with minimal intervention and non-surgical methods at the earlier stages. However, if the condition has advanced, the doctor will suggest surgery to cure the fissure. At Pristyn Care, we use advanced laser technology to treat the condition. It is a high-precision technique that allows the surgeons to remove the damaged muscles, if needed, without affecting the anal sphincter function. It’ll improve the blood flow in the anal region and promote rapid healing of the fissure. Get in touch with Pristyn Care doctors in Kanpur and undergo laser surgery at the hands of trained and experienced surgeons.

In Our Doctor's Word

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."

Advanced Laser Treatment for Anal Fissure in Kanpur

Though laser surgery is a modern practice as compared to conventional open surgery, it is still the most-effective way to treat anal fissures. Anal fissure fails to heal when the crack in the anal lining gets traumatized again and again and the natural healing pace is slow. Laser energy improves the blood flow in the anal region and increases the speed of healing. It allows the fissure to heal in less time. Along with this, proper diet and physical activities are also suggested by Pristyn Care doctors to prevent the recurrence of anal fissures.

Here are some other benefits of laser fissure treatment that will help you understand why this technology is prevalent in Kanpur and all across India:

  • The laser technique is non-invasive, which means there won’t be any cuts, stitches, wounds, or scars from the surgery.
  • The procedure only takes 30 minutes and the patient can leave the hospital within 24-48 hours.
  • The high-intensity laser beam can be controlled precisely by the surgeons making the risk to the surrounding tissues negligible.
  • It is a safe and sound technique that cures the disease from the roots and preserves the anal sphincter function as well.
  • There are no risks of bleeding, clotting, or infection during and after the procedure.

You can learn more about modern laser technology by talking to our medical experts and getting the best-in-class treatment for anal fissures in Kanpur.

How do you relieve fissure itching?

Here are a few simple tips that can help you relieve fissure itching:

  • Don’t scratch the fissure area. Scratching may irritate the skin. To find relief from the condition, you can apply compression to the area or take an oatmeal bath. You may want to scratch the area while in your sleep, so you should trim your nails to prevent hurting your area.
  • Wear breathable cotton underwear. Wearing cotton undergarments will help you keep your area dry. Avoid wearing pantyhose and tight-fit inner garments because they may trap moisture and irritate the skin.
  • Clean your anal area gently – Use clean lukewarm plain water to clean your anus. Use non-irritating mild soap. Do not scrub the area near your anal fissure. Make sure to clean the area with moist cotton balls or plain water if you have diarrhea or incontinence.
  • Avoid irritants – Do not use anything like perfumed soaps, bubble baths, genital deodorants, or harsh wipes in and around your anal fissure. If you need to clean your fissure area, use unscented toilet paper.
  • Watch your diet – Cut down on your intake of coffee, cola, spicy foods, citrus fruits, tomatoes, or any food that may cause diarrhea. Don’t indulge in laxative overuse
  • Use gels and ointments – You can use zinc oxide gels or ointments, vaseline petroleum jelly, or hydrocortisone cream to find quick relief from the itching and irritating symptoms.
  • Maintain firm bowel movements – Adding a lot of fiber to your regular diet can help you pass soft and timely bowel movements. For smooth bowel movements, you can also take the help of fiber supplements such as psyllium (Metamucil) and methylcellulose (Citrucel).

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 a tear or a crack appears in the skin near the anus. On the other hand, anal fistulas are tube-like passages that appear in the anal canal or the inner rectum. Most anal fissures are like paper cuts and usually 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 conditions are very similar to each other. Pain in the anal area, discomfort while sitting on the toilet seat and pain while passing a bowel movement, and blood in stools are some of the common symptoms of 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 conditions require medical intervention. An anal fissure or anal fistula can be treated by a proctologist or an anorectal/ colorectal surgeon. In the initial stages, both 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.
