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 The radial fibre emits laser energy at 360 degree as it is gradually withdrawn from the external orifice.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.

Why anal fistula should not be left untreated?

Anal fistula is a very serious condition that causes unbearable pain and a foul-smelling discharge. Most people hesitate to get treatment for fistula because they don’t realize that anal fistula is also a risk factor of anal cancer. Furthermore, it can cause complications, such as:

  • 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.
  • Perforation- Once the infection spread to the colon or intestinal wall, it can result in trauma. The weak part of the intestinal wall or colon will get ruptured and cause perforation. The intestinal material will start to leak in the abdominal cavity and you will need immediate medical care.
  • Peritonitis- This complication arises when the abdominal lining membrane gets inflamed due to the bacterial infection. It will lead to shock, organ failure, and may cause death.

To prevent the disease from reaching this stage, it is crucial that you seek treatment as earliest as possible. Contact Pristyn Care today and consult with medical experts to explore your treatment options.
