The anal fissure may resemble the name of some flora-fauna but it is, in fact, a medical term for the small tears or split in the thin, moist tissue lining the anus (lower rectum). This tearing is also known as Fistula-in-Ano that can cause intense pain, bleeding, and itching.
An anal fistula is the formation of a small infected tunnel that connects the skin near the anus and at the end of the intestine. It is very painful and can lead to bleeding and discharge during defecation. In some patients, drainage can be persistent, while in others it is recurrent.
Symptoms of Anal Fistula
Symptoms of Anal fistula are very unpleasant such as:
- Fever, around 380 ° C (100.4 ° F) or higher
- Constipation during bowel movements
- Discharge of pus during defecation
- Irritation, inflammation or swelling of the skin encircling the anus
- Bad smell near the anus
- A continuous and severe pain that gets worse during bowel movements or while sitting
- Unable to control bowel movements in some cases
- Abdominal pain, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting (if the tearing is due to bowel inflammation)
Type of surgery will depends upon the position of the anal fistula and whether it is classified as simple or complex. Your surgeon will give you more details about the procedures you may need for the treatment.
The major objective of any anal fistula surgery is to heal the fistula and prevent any damage to the sphincter muscles (the ring of muscles involved in the opening and closing of the anus). Injury to the sphincter muscles may result in bowel discomfort, where you have no control over your bowels.
Anal fistula surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, where you are unconscious and cannot feel anything. In some cases, surgeons use local anesthesia, in which you are conscious but the area being surgically operated is numbed so you do not feel any pain.
Following are some of the different types of anal fistula surgery.
The most common type of anal fistula surgery is a fistulotomy, which involves cutting along the entire length of the fistula to open it so that it heals like a flat scar.
A fistulotomy is the most effective treatment for many anal fistulas, although it is usually only suitable for fistulas that do not pass through most of the sphincter muscles because the risk of incontinence is lower in these cases.
A seton is a piece of surgical wire that is left in the fistula tract to keep the stretch open, often for several months. This allows the fistula to drain properly before healing.
A bioprosthetic plug is a cone-shaped stopper made from the animal tissue to block the internal opening of the fistula.
Stitches are used to hold the plug in place, but the external opening is not completely sealed in order to drain the fistula continuously. The new tissue then develops around the plug to heal it.
Fibrin glue is presently the only non-surgical alternative for the treatment of an anal fistula. The fistula is injected with fibrin glue to seal the tract. It is injected through the fistula opening and the opening is then sewed closed.
