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

Doctors performing laser surgery for anal fissure

Many people believe that non-surgical treatment methods are enough to cure anal fissures. But you must know that once fissures reach the chronic stage, home remedies, over-the-counter medicines, diet changes, fiber supplements, drinking water, coconut or olive oil, or any other non-surgical treatment methods won’t be able to provide permanent relief.

These non-surgical treatment methods can help to reduce the pain, but the chances of recurrence are high. So, if you want to make sure that the fissures never develop again, you must opt for laser surgery. This is a high-precision treatment method in which only the damaged anal tissues are targeted and removed.

During fissure laser surgery, the surrounding tissues are left untouched and after the removal of damaged tissue, the healing process also becomes faster. Besides that, laser surgery is a painless treatment method with minimal bleeding that prevents the risks of complications during or after the surgery. Due to its several advantages, laser surgery is considered the best treatment for anal fissure in Kolkata.

Is Treatment For Anal Fissure Necessary?

Acute or mild fissures can heal with home treatment, dietary and lifestyle changes (such as taking a fiber-rich diet, using stool softeners, or fiber supplements). However, chronic, severe, or long-term fissures are not likely to heal without surgery and may reoccur often. If a fissure lasts more than several weeks, you may need surgery. 

Many individuals do not take anal fissure seriously and avoid the symptoms, thinking it is not a serious condition or it will heal on its own. But, it is important to understand that if the cause of fissure is not addressed, it is very likely to reoccur.

If the anal fissure is not treated on time, it may potentially lead to several serious conditions such as bleeding in stool, rectum prolapse, and anal cancer. Therefore, timely and diagnosis and treatment of fissure are extremely important.

How Is Anal Fissure Treated In Kolkata?

Treatment for anal fissure in Kolkata is decided by several factors such as its symptoms, severity, and possible causes. Mild cases of anal fissure can be treated by addressing the cause. The doctor may recommend dietary or lifestyle changes along with suitable nonsurgical treatments to treat anal fissures.

The goal of treatment for mild anal fissure is to lower the pressure exerted on the anal canal by passing soft stools and to ease symptoms like pain, discomfort as well as bleeding.

To treat fissures in Kolkata, the fissure specialist may try conservative and nonsurgical treatments such as:-

  1. Preventing constipation by taking stool softeners, drinking more water and fluids. The doctor may also recommend avoiding caffeine-based beverages and products (which may cause dehydration). Making dietary adjustments like increasing the intake of high fiber foods or fiber supplements can also help in treating fissures.
  2. Soaking in a sitz bath (or a warm bath) for 10-20 minutes 3 to 5 times a day can help relax the anal muscles and may reduce discomfort and pain.
  3. Gently cleanse the anorectal area. 
  4. Avoid straining while passing stool or sitting on the toilet for a long time.
  5. Use a prescribed cream or ointment for fissures to help lubricate the anorectal area and soothe discomfort.

After a detailed diagnosis, the doctor may recommend you the best treatment for your case.

Patients with chronic and severe anal fissures may not benefit from nonsurgical treatments and are likely to require surgery. The surgery of fissures can be done in many ways such as open surgery and laser surgery.

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