What is the treatment for Fissure?

Anal fissure is a cut or tear in the skin around the anus. It causes itching, pain, discomfort, and bleeding during bowel movements or while passing stool. A fissure may occur due to the passing of hard and large stools. Usually, an anal fissure heals on its own within four [4] to six [6] weeks. However, if the condition persists for more than six [6] weeks, it would require immediate medical attention.

Treatment

Laser surgery for Fissure treatment in mumbai

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.

Facts on fissure

  • 20 to 35% of India’s population are reported to have anal fissure.
  • Incidence of the fissure is highly observed in the urban and suburban population (18% vs 12%).
  • The prevalence of anal fissure is slightly higher in males than in females.
  • Anal fissures can most commonly be found among people aged between 15 to 40 years.

Who is prone to developing an anal fissure?

Anal fissures can develop in people at any age. However, younger people are more at risk as they have a tight anal sphincter. The chances of developing an anal fissure decrease as people get older. People who have had fissures in the past are more likely to have them again in the future.  

What are the causes of anal fissures?

Anal fissure can develop when the blood flow in the anal region reduces and the mucous lining surrounding the anus becomes dry. The main causes of anal fissure include:

  • Constipation
  • Straining during bowel movements
  • Persistent diarrhea
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Sexually transmitted diseases/infections
  • Underlying conditions like Crohn’s disease
  • Muscle spasms

What are the home remedies for anal fissure?

You can try out the following home remedies to treat fissures at home

  • Increase fiber intake in your diet
  • Drink enough water or fluids
  • Avoid straining during bowel movements
  • Use laxatives and stool softeners as prescribed by doctors

When do you need to see a doctor for anal fissure?

Most people have an acute anal fissure that often dissappears by using certain home remedies. However, in severe cases of chronic fissure, home remedies may fail to treat the symptoms. You should consider consulting a doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Pain during and after bowel movements that last for hours
  • Blood in stools, tissue paper or wipes
  • Visible crack or tear in the anal lining
  • Itching, irritation, and burning sensations in the anal region
  • Discomfort during urination (in some cases)

What are the advantages of undergoing a laser surgery for anal fissure?

Laser surgery for anal fissure is considered the safest, painless and most effective treatment. During the procedure, the patient is put under the influence of general anesthesia and, if necessary, a small section of the sphincter muscle is removed to reduce the spasm and provide relief. It improves the blood flow in the anal region and allows the fissure to heal completely at a quick pace. The benefits of undergoing a laser surgery are:

  • It is a non-invasive procedure and involves no cuts or stitches
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Short procedure: takes about 30-40 minutes
  • Recovery is quick
  • Chances of recurrence are reduced to a greater extent
  • Minimal post-surgery complications
