Diagnosis

If you consult a doctor for anal fistula, the doctor asks your medical history and examines you physically. Some of them can be easily spotted while others might need closer examination. The doctor might use his finger to examine the fluid and oozing in that region. Better consult a rectum and colon specialist for such problems as you might have to go through X-Ray and colonoscopy.

Colonoscopy is the process where a doctor looks inside the bowels with the help of a tube with a camera attached at the end. This helps the doctor to diagnose the anal fistula.

Surgery

Fistula do not heal on their own and usually do not go away with medication. Therefore, surgery is important to treat fistula. Laser surgery for fistula is a minimally invasive procedure. The surgeon inserts the laser probe into the fistula tract, the laser destroys the fistula tissue and closes the tract. The treatment is almost painless and is a 30-40 minute procedure. Moreover, the period of recovery is also shorter than with conventional surgical procedures.

What are the different treatment options for anal fistula?

Fistula is a very serious problem that must never be ignored. It is an anorectal disease that doesn’t heal on its own or can be treated using home remedies. Surgery is the only plausible solution to get rid of anal fistula. Hence, you should seek expert help and find out as much as possible about the treatment methods. The common methods that can be used for treatment of anal fistula are:

  • Fistulotomy, where the surgeon inserts a probe to locate the internal opening. The contents deposited in the tract are scraped and flushed out. Then the tract is flattened and sealed shut. The wound left after this surgery takes around two months to heal.
  • Advancement Rectal Flap is another method where the surgeon takes a flap from the rectal region and puts it against the opening of the fistula after proper cleaning. This method is very risky and may lead to bowel incontinence.
  • Seton Placement involves usage of a seton (rubber band or silk string). The seton is placed inside the fistula so that it can be drained completely and start healing over time. This method is chosen when the tract is very close to the anal sphincter muscles.
  • LIFT (ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract) is a treatment method that is carried out in two stages. In the first stage, the abscess and other contents are drained. In the second stage, the surgeon closes the internal opening and removes the infected tissues safely.

Some other methods like stapler surgery, fibrin glue, stoma, and ostomy are also available but they are less effective. A comparatively new yet effective method is also available in the form of laser-assisted surgery that has higher success rates than any other fistula treatment method. If you have fistula and seeking treatment, opt for laser surgery and get rid of the problem in a painless manner.
