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

Fissure Diagnosis in Vizag

To provide the optimal fissure treatment in Vizag, it is important to diagnose the condition carefully.

For proper diagnosis of anal fissure, the doctor conducts a physical examination. If the anal fissure cannot be identified clearly, a digital rectal examination may be suggested for an accurate diagnosis. Anoscopy can also be helpful in identifying the tear that is located inside the anal canal. Additional tests like sigmoidoscopy, MRI, CT scan, or ultrasound are also recommended to rule out the possibility of cancer and other underlying medical conditions.

Fissure Surgery in Visakhapatnam

At Pristyn Care, our doctors perform laser fissure surgery in Visakhapatnam. It is a non-invasive procedure that provides better control over the surgery. The laser probe is used to promote faster healing of the tissues so that the tear can heal as soon as possible. If necessary, a small part of the damaged anal sphincter muscle is removed to restore the function and avoid complications. In comparison to laser surgery, there are many risks of undergoing open surgery. That’s why Pristyn Care focuses on providing painless treatment to patients through modern laser technology.

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."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of fissure surgery in Visakhapatnam?

In Visakhapatnam, the cost of fissure surgery may range between Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 42,000. This is not the same for every individual and is subject to change based on various factors.

Why does anal fissure bleed?

Bleeding from the anal canal is caused by passing a hard stool. The same leads to a lot of pain during and after a bowel movement. There is a chance of opening the anal fissure during a bowel, so it continues to cause discomfort and bleed afterward.

I am bleeding from the anus. Does it mean I have cancer?

Probably not, In fact, cancer is a relatively uncommon cause for rectal bleeding. The common reason includes anal fissure, anorectal fistula, colitis, and non-cancerous (benign) polyps, etc.

Does anal fissure bleed heavily?

Bleeding is a secondary symptom of anal fissure. Hence, you may notice occasional bleeding if you have a fissure, but it won’t be excessive. Heavy bleeding is a symptom of piles. Consult a specialist for proper diagnosis.

What causes a chronic anal fissure?

A fissure becomes chronic when a tear doesn’t heal on time. The ring or sphincter muscle that is present around the anus becomes tense so that the flow of blood is reduced significantly. It further slows the healing process, giving rise to chronic fissures.

Can Pristyn Care provide financial aid for fissure treatment in Visakhapatnam?

Yes, Pristyn Care provides finance options, such as cashless payment and zero-cost EMI to make the treatment accessible for all patients. You can learn about our flexible payment system by contacting Pristyn Care.

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.

Do anal fissures reccur after undergoing laser surgery?

Some clinical studies say that 10% of people who underwent laser fissure surgery have developed anal fissure [recurrence of anal fissures] after 6-8 months. So, it is important to follow all the post-surgical tips suggested by the doctor to avoid recurrence.

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.

How long does it take to recover after laser fissure surgery?

Once you undergo anal fissure surgery, you may take 1-3 days to resume your daily activities. However, to recover and heal completely without any complications, you may take 3-4 months. If you wish to recover quickly, you should follow all the precautions as directed by the doctor.

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.

Can anal fissure be cured at home?

Like any other small tears and cuts on the skin, anal fissure may heal within a few weeks. But if your condition of anal fissue 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?

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.
