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

    If you consult a doctor for treating anal fissure, the doctor will initially ask about your medical history and inspect your anal region by performing a physical examination. Depending upon the severity of your condition, the doctor will further recommend you to go through certain diagnostic tests like anoscopy, colonoscopy, and flexible sigmoidoscopy to rule out any other underlying condition.

    Non-Surgical

    Based on the diagnosis, if your condition is in the initial stages, the doctor may prescribe you to go through a number of non-surgical treatment procedures such as:

    • Externally applied nitroglycerin (Rectiv) ointments to increase the blood flow, promote healing and help the anal sphincter to relax.
    • Topical anesthetic creams such as Lidocaine hydrochloride (Xylocaine) to relieve the pain.
    • Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) injection to relax spasms by paralyzing the anal sphincter muscles.
    • Blood pressure medications like Procardia or Cardizem to help relax the anal sphincter muscles.

    Surgical

    If your symptoms are severe or if you are diagnosed with a chronic anal fissure that is resistant to other treatments, the doctor might recommend you to go through a certain number of procedures that include:

    • Lateral internal sphincterotomy (LIS): This is a surgical procedure during which cuts or incisions are made around the internal sphincter muscles in order to release the tension of the sphincter muscles and promote healing of the anal fissure.
    • Laser Sphincterotomy: This is the best and safest procedure of treating anal fissure that involves the use of a laser fibre that emits high energy laser beams, directly focussed on the anal fissures to increase proper healing.

    Among all the available treatments, laser-assisted surgical procedure is highly successful in treating anal fissure. It is a commonly preferred procedure as it involves minimal blood loss, no cuts, stitches or scars and the complications are also reduced to a greater extent. If you are suffering from severe symptoms, you can get in touch with Pristyn Care and consult the best proctologists in Mumbai to get your fissure wound treated in the safest and painless method.

    27 Years Experience

    "Anal fissure is one of the most common and often discomforting anorectal conditions. It affects at least 1 out of 10 at some point in their lives. It can be characterized by a small cut or tear in the lining of the anal canal, typically caused by passing large or hard stools or any kind of anal injury. One may experience slight pain and discomfort in the anal area or notice bright red blood while passing stool or wiping with tissue. But, this condition is very much manageable. Anyone experiencing these symptoms can avail of various treatments available for this condition and win back their quality of life. It is important to understand that delaying treatment can trigger complications such as an anal infection, chron’s disease, etc. So, I would suggest that if you’re affected by this condition, you must consult an experienced proctologist for the most suitable plan as per the severity of your condition. Take care!"

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the cost of fissure surgery in Mumbai?

    The cost of fissure surgery depends on various factors and can cost you between Rs. 44,000 to Rs. 55,000 in Mumbai. But this is not the same price range for every person because of the doctor fee, charges of diagnostic tests, the severity of fissure, etc.

    How to prevent anal fissures from returning?

    After undergoing anal fissure surgery, it is advised to follow a few precautions which help you to avoid the recurrence fissure.

    • Consume high fiber foods such as citrus fruits, bananas, peas, whole grains, etc.
    • Drink water [3-4 liters a day].
    • Eat vegetables that are with high-water content.
    • Don’t sit for long hours.
    • Avoid straining during bowel movements.

    Will I suffer from pain during laser fissure surgery?

    Before performing the anal fissure laser surgery, you will be sedated, or the surgical area will be numbed using either general or local anesthesia. So, you won’t suffer from pain and discomfort through the surgical process. However, once the surgery is completed, you may feel mild pain and discomfort, which subside over time.

    How long will I take to do my daily activities after anal fissure surgery?

    If you undergo anal fissure surgery, you may take 1-3 days to get back to your daily routines. But to heal and recover completely after the surgery, you may take 2-3 months.

    Are fissures and hemorrhoids the same?

    An anal fissure is a small tear or cut in the lining of the anus. Hemorrhoids are a group of inflamed and swollen tissues in the anal area. If you suspect having any of these anorectal diseases, get consulted by the best proctologists at your nearest location.

    What can happen if anal fissures are left untreated?

    If anal fissures are left untreated, they can cause severe constipation, fecal impaction, pain in the anal area, sentinel pile, difficulty to do daily activities and can form an anal fistula. To avoid these, you should not delay the anal fissure treatment.

    How long does it take to complete laser fissure surgery?

    Anorectal surgeons and proctologists who are experts in performing laser anal fissure surgery may take 15 to 45 minutes to complete it. But the duration of the laser surgery is subject to vary from one person to another due to the severity of the fissure and the presence of any underlying disease that can affect the surgical outcomes.

    Are creams for anal fissure effective?

    Yes, to an extent. Topical calcium channel blockers are considered to be effective ointments for the treatment of anal fissure. These are recommended when other common ointments fail to provide relief from the symptoms. Using these creams for anal fissure for at elast 6 weeks can help you get relief from the itching and burning sensations. But, if the fissure has grown very severe, you may need medical intervention.

    What is the permanent cure for anal fissure?

    Regardless of the severity of your anal fissure, surgery is considered to be the permanenet cure for anal fissure. In case of anal fissure surgery, the chances of succes is much higher than open surgical treatment.

    • Use gels and ointments – You can use zinc oxide gels or ointments, vaseline petroleum jelly or hydrocortisone cream to find quick relief from the itching and irritating symptoms.
    • Maintain firm bowel movements – Adding a lot of fiber to your regular diet can help you pass soft and timely bowel movements. For smooth bowel movements, you can also take help of fiber supplements such as psyllium (Metamucil) and methylcellulose (Citrucel).

    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.
