What is Anal Fissure?

Anal fissure is a crack that appears around the anal region. It occurs due to trauma inside the inner lining of the anus that happens when you pass large and hard stools frequently. Chronic diarrhea can also be the cause of fissure. It typically causes severe pain and occasional bleeding during bowel movements. Delaying treatment will turn acute fissure into chronic and it’ll become more difficult to treat. If anal fissure is not diagnosed properly, it may allow other conditions to go undetected, such as infections or even cancer. Get in touch with Pristyn Care and visit the nearest clinic in Kochi to get fissure treatment from experts.

Diagnosis

The doctor will ask for your medical history and perform a physical examination to diagnose fissures. Typically, a gentle inspection of the anal region is enough to identify the cracks and tears in anal lining. A chronic fissure will have deeper tears and may have fresh internal and external growths. The exact location of the fissure will provide clues about its cause. If the doctor suspects that there is an underlying condition that is the primary cause of fissure, he/she will recommend additional tests, such as anoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, and colonoscopy.

Procedure

Laser surgery is the method employed by Pristyn Care surgeons for the treatment of anal fissure. The laser probe is used to locate the tears and promote blood flow in the region so that the fissure can heal faster. If needed, a small part of anal sphincter is removed to relieve the pressure and reduce the spasm and pain inside the anal canal. Laser surgery serves as the permanent cure for anal fissure as it treats the disease from the roots without any risks or complications. Moreover, the patient will recover completely within 2-5 days and resume the daily activities without a hitch.

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.
