Treatment

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of anal fistula is usually done through a gentle visual inspection. However, some fistulas are not that easy to spot. In that scenario, the doctor will look for signs like oozing fluid or bleeding inside the anal canal. Most probably, the doctor will recommend some colon and rectal imaging tests such as X-ray, CT scan, colonoscopy to rule out the possibility of other medical conditions.

As there are various types of anal fistula, the appropriate treatment method for anal fistula is chosen according to the type.

Procedure

Surgery is the only cure for anal fistula, but the conventional surgical methods had many risks and complications. Due to this, Pristyn Care surgeons rely on the advanced yet safe laser technology. In the procedure, a laser beam is used to ablate the fistula. The radial fibre emits laser energy at 360 degree as it is gradually withdrawn from the external orifice. It is an anal sphincter saving treatment whose success primary depends on the efficacy of the tools and the surgeons. Once the fistula is drained and ablated, it is sealed properly without any stitches. The laser technology has minimal complications and it prevent recurrence of anal fistula allowing it to heal faster than usual.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Sajeet Nayar-Say-About-Anal Fistula-Treatment

Dr. Sajeet Nayar

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

19 Years Experience

"Fistula, in general is very painful. You suffer a constant pain, irritation and smelly discharge around your anus. With time, not only your bowel movements but simple activities like sitting/ walking becomes difficult too. These days, I see not old but equally many men in middle and younger ages with similar symptoms. This is happening precisely because of today's inactive lifestyle, increasing dependence on junk food, stress and long sitting hours. The trend is dangerous. I highly encourage you have balanced, home cooked meal and walk at least thirty [30] minutes everyday. But, if a fistula has already formed, do not trust just home remedies/ OTC care. Meet a proctologist and seek proper guidance before it turns severe or risks forming infection or other anorectal diseases. Also, remember that while exercise and yoga can help in its prevention in the anorectal diseases, they will not help once the fistula has already formed. Infact, any excess movement/ or exercise during this time can cause friction, rupture, infection and way more pain than bearable. So, in my opinion, seek a proper medical attention at the earliest and let your doctor decide the best course of action."

  • Infection- Over time, the infection from the tract will spread causing the fistula to get branched. Once fistula is branched, it will be more complicated to treat and there will be higher risk of damage to the anal sphincter muscles.
  • Sepsis- Without proper treatment, anal fistula can become life-threatening. The bacterial infection may spread throughout the body and may cause organ damage or shock that can be fatal for the patient.
