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

Diagnosis

Anal fissures often heal within 8 weeks. If it doesn’t, then the doctor will ask for your medical history and the symptoms. Often the doctor can see the tear clearly without any tests. If it is not visible, a physical or rectal examination is recommended of the area around the anus for accurate diagnosis. The rectal examination is done through an anoscope. It is inserted in the rectum to inspect the anal canal and see the tear clearly. The tests are usually recommended after the doctor reviews your medical history and suspects that there may be an underlying condition.

It is a high-precision technique that allows the surgeons to remove the damaged muscles, if needed, without affecting the anal sphincter function. It’ll improve the blood flow in the anal region and promote rapid healing of the fissure.

In Our Doctor's Word

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

Dr. Sajeet Nayar

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

19 Years Experience

"Many a times patients confuse fissure with piles. They keep taking home remedies or OTC medicines without knowing the exact cause. This often delays a proper diagnosis and eventually, the correct treatment. At times I have patients coming with severed conditions and combination of different anorectal diseases including grade 4 piles. This makes treatment difficult and recovery longer. So, as a rule of thumb, I will suggest do not trust home remedies/ OTC treatment for permanent cure of piles. If you experience continuous pain, bleeding and abscess, consult a good proctologist as soon as possible and let your doctor decide the best course of action."

These are recommended when other common ointments fail to provide relief from the symptoms. Using these creams for anal fissures for at least 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.

Can anal fissure be cured at home?

Like any other small tears and cuts on the skin, the anal fissures may heal within a few weeks. But if your condition of anal fissure has grown severe, you may need to check with a general physician who can help you get the best treatments for your anal fissure.

What is the permanent cure for anal fissure?

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

Does anal fissure cause pus discharge?

Normally, the cracks and tears don’t cause pus discharge. But if the fissure site contacts infection, it can lead to pus discharge. Once the fissure gets infected, the condition can become chronic and quite painful. If not treated in time, the fissure can grow deeper and form a channel outside the skin.

Why is fissure treatment necessary?

An anal fissure may not be a life-threatening disease, but it has a great impact on an individual’s quality of life. The pain caused by fissure is immense and often unbearable. Apart from this, if the fissure is left untreated, it can further cause complications like bleeding, chronic pain, infection, bowel incontinence, and fistula formation. All these problems directly impact your lifestyle. Once anal fissure reaches a certain stage, the non-surgical treatments like medications, creams, etc. won’t be effective. In many cases, people often try methods that are not prescribed by doctors and end up making the problem worse. That’s why it is necessary to consult specialists before you opt out of any ointment or medications.

If not treated, the problem will only become more severe up to a point that the only solution would be having surgery. Instead of letting the disease reach that chronic stage, it is better that you undergo elective fissure surgery and get rid of the problem permanently. If you are seeking treatment for anal fissure in Nagpur, consult with Pristyn Care doctors and learn more about the disease and its treatment.

Laser Fissure Surgery- The Permanent Cure for Fissure in Nagpur

People often avoid undergoing open surgery as it is complex, painful, and requires a longer time to heal completely. As compared to the conventional method, advanced laser surgery is very beneficial from both patients’ and doctors’ perspectives. The laser fissure surgery is carried out using a high-intensity laser probe that targets the damaged tissues and treats them. It is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve pain, incisions, stitches, or scars. It also reduces the risks and complications that were associated with open surgery. The laser surgery is done on an outpatient basis which allows the patients to get discharged within 24-48 hours.

Fissures are hard to treat because they usually don’t heal completely. The laser technique allows them to heal completely in a short span. Hence, it works as a permanent cure, giving the condition that the patient follows the instructions and guidelines given by the doctor. At Pristyn Care, we emphasize using laser technology to cure fissures because it is the safest procedure available and effectively maintains the anal sphincter function. If you have been suffering from fissure for some time now, we suggest that you get in touch with our medical experts in Nagpur and undergo laser fissure surgery to get rid of the problem.

How do you relieve fissure itching?

Here are a few simple tips that can help you relieve fissure itching:

  • Don’t scratch the fissure area. Scratching may irritate the skin. To find relief from the condition, you can apply compression to the area or take an oatmeal bath. You may want to scratch the area while in your sleep, so you should trim your nails to prevent hurting your area.
  • Wear breathable cotton underwear. Wearing cotton undergarments will help you keep your area dry. Avoid wearing pantyhose and tight-fit inner garments because they may trap moisture and irritate the skin.
  • Clean your anal area gently – Use clean lukewarm plain water to clean your anus. Use non-irritating mild soap. Do not scrub the area near your anal fissure. Make sure to clean the area with moist cotton balls or plain water if you have diarrhea or incontinence.
  • Avoid irritants – Do not use anything like perfumed soaps, bubble baths, genital deodorants, or harsh wipes in and around your anal fissure. If you need to clean your fissure area, use unscented toilet paper.
  • Watch your diet – Cut down on your intake of coffee, cola, spicy foods, citrus fruits, tomatoes or any food that may cause diarrhea. Don’t indulge in laxative overuse
  • 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 the 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 a tear or a crack appears in the skin near the anus. On the other hand, anal fistulas are tube-like passages that appear in the anal canal or the inner rectum. Most anal fissures are like paper cuts and usually 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 conditions are very similar to each other. Pain in the anal area, discomfort while seating on the toilet seat and pain while passing a bowel movement, and blood in stools are some of the common symptoms of 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 conditions require medical intervention. An anal fissure or anal fistula can be treated by a proctologist or an anorectal/ colorectal surgeon. In the initial stages, both 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.
