Treatment

Diagnosis

To diagnose an anal fistula, the experts will first ask your medical history and perform a physical examination. In some patients, the fistula is easy to spot. However, in other cases, the doctors will stick a finger inside the anus to look for signs of pus, fluid leakage, or bleeding. If necessary, the doctors will recommend additional tests like X-Ray, CT Scan, MRI, ultrasound, or anoscopy.

If necessary, the doctors will recommend additional tests like X-Ray, CT Scan, MRI, ultrasound, or anoscopy.

The most effective procedure for fistula treatment is laser surgery. In this procedure, a high-intensity laser probe is inserted into the fistulous tract which removes the infected tissues. Once the infected fluid stored in the tract is drained, it is sealed properly. The entire procedure only takes about 30 to 45 minutes. The laser surgery is a non-invasive and painless method that provides faster relief. The recovery will also take 2-5 days and the patient is less likely to rely on pain medications.

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."

Why Fistula Surgery is necessary?

Pristyn Care understands that anal fistula is a very serious problem that needs immediate treatment. Leaving fistula untreated can result in complications, such as:

  • Fistula drainage which can lead to abscess formation as the fecal contents and pus gets filled in the tract. It will further spread the infection and may result in branching of fistula.
  • Sepsis is another risk of not getting proper treatment for fistula. The bacterial infection present in the fistula will spread in the body through the gastrointestinal tract and make your condition severe. The chemicals released by the body to fight the bacterial infection may trigger changes into the organ system and result in symptoms like fever, abnormal heart rate, rapid breathing, rashes, disorientation, etc.
  • Perforation happens when the anal fistula infection affects the colon and intestinal wall. If a specific part of the colon or intestinal wall is weak, it’ll get ruptured causing the infection and intestinal material to leak in the abdominal cavity.
  • Peritonitis is one of the biggest risks of leaving fistula untreated. In this condition, the bacterial infection in the anal canal cause inflammation in the membrane lining of abdominal wall. It can cause shock, organ failure, and eventual death.

If you notice any symptoms of anal fistula, such as itching, bleeding bowels, foul smelling discharge, etc., get in touch with Pristyn Care and consult with our specialists in Nagpur to determine the right mode of treatment for anal fistula.
