Anal fistula


Anal Fistula / Fistula-in-Ano

Anal Fistula / Fistula-in-Ano is a chronic abnormal communication between the surface of the anal canal and the skin of the anus. The anal fistula can be described as a narrow tunnel with an internal opening in the anal canal and an external opening in the skin near the anus. Anal fistula usually occurs in people with a history of anal abscess. When the anal abscess does not heal properly, they form.

Anal fistula originates from the anal gland and is located between the internal and external sphincters of the anus and is discharged into the anal canal. If the outlets of these glands are blocked, an abscess can form, eventually extending to the surface of the skin. The tract formed by this process is a fistula

Causes of Fistula

  • Intestinal inflammatory disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Tuberculosis (T.B)
  • Anorectal cancer

Symptoms of Fistula

  • Recurrent anal abscess
  • Pain and swelling around the anus
  • Defecation pain
  • Bleeding
  • Skin irritation around the anus
  • Fever, chills, and general fatigue
  • Discharge of pus or blood
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Vomiting or Nausea

Fistula Treatment

Kshara Sutra is a minimally invasive Ayurvedic treatment and time-tested Ayurvedic treatment for anorectal diseases. This is a safe, reliable and cost-effective way to treat anal fistula, piles and other sinus diseases.

Fistula Treatment 1 - Laser Surgery

The procedure is completed under brief general anesthesia and takes approximately 30-40 minutes. A radially emitting laser fiber is inserted from the outside. A defined amount of laser energy is then emitted circumferentially into the fistula tube. The laser energy causes controlled photothermal destruction of the fistula tract, causing the fistula tract to collapse to a high degree. This also helps to support and accelerate the healing process.

It has an excellent cure rate compared to all other techniques. Because the anal sphincter is preserved, there is no risk of post-operative incontinence.

It can be done with a complex fistula like the inguinal region of the rectum, Recto-Gluteal Fistulas. It is safe for high risk patients with high blood pressure, heart (heart) problems and elderly people.

Fistula Tratment 2 - Kshar Sutra Therapy

The effect of pressure on the Fistulous Tract by tensioned Kshar Sutra on the anorectal tissue. The presence of Kshar Sutra in the Fistulous Tract does not allow the cavity to close from both ends and continuously drain the pus along the Kshar Sutra itself.

Kshar Sutra slowly and gradually from Apex to the surrounding Fistulous Tract. There is an ideal way to cut and heal at the same time, no pup bag can stay.

Kshara applied to threads is an anti-inflammatory, anti-vomiting agent and, in addition, chemically cured. Kshar Sutra is still in direct contact with the area, so it chemically trims the upper lining and causes it to fall off, causing the Fistulous Tract to collapse and heal.

Due to its antibacterial properties, Kshar Sutra does not allow bacteria to multiply in their presence. The pH of Kshar Sutra is toward the alkaline side, so it does not allow rectal pathogens to invade the cavity

Benefits of Kshar Sutra Therapy
  • It is an out patient treatment
  • Mainly under local anesthesia
  • The Procedure only takes 30-45 minutes
  • The length of hospital stay is usually the shortest (5-6 hours)
  • The minimum bed rest is required after the procedure
  • The patient can resume his/her daily life within 3 to 5 days
  • The recurrence rate after Ksharsutra ligation is very low
  • The most important benefit of Kshar Sutra therapy for modern surgery is that the muscles that support the anus and help control bowel movements are not dissected, so the possibility of anal incontinence does not exist
