    What is Anal Fistula?

    An anal fistula is a small tunnel between the anal canal and the opening of the skin around the anus. Inside the anus, there are a number of small glands that sometimes get clogged or infected, developing a pus-filled abscess near the anus. This abscess is drained naturally or with external help by creating a small channel. The opening of this channel on the surface of your skin is known as an anal fistula.

    Anal Fistula Surgery

    An anal fistula does not always heal on its own, so surgery is usually necessary to treat it. Surgery is required to block the channel and opening of the anal fistula that developed due to pus drainage on the surface of your skin. The doctor will diagnose the fistula through physical examination, imaging tests, or proctoscopy, and depending on its severity, your doctor will opt for the treatment procedure under spinal anaesthesia.

    Causes & Symptoms of Fistula

    The small anal glands can get infected due to Chron’s disease, diverticulitis (a large intestine infection), infection from TB or HIV, exposure to radiation, chronic diarrhoea, or hidradenitis suppurativa (a long-term skin condition causing an abscess). These infections develop an abscess, and the drainage from it can leave a hollow channel called a fistula.

    Treatment of Fistula

    To check the severity and location of the fistula, your doctor will diagnose it with a physical examination, proctoscopy (special instrument with a light on one end, used to see inside the anus) and MRI scan. Your doctor will then select the best option from the following treatment types:


    Open Surgery

    This is the most common surgery to treat a fistula if it does not cross through the sphincter muscle. To reduce the risk of incontinence, the fistula is cut long and the sphincter muscle is left untouched. It opens up the fistula and heals it as a flat scar.

    Open Surgery

    If your fistula passes through the anal sphincter muscle, a fistulotomy will be difficult as it increases the risk of incontinence. Your doctor will use cotton or silk thread to block the fistula. As the suture is left in the fistula for several weeks, it drains and heals.

    Laser Treatment

    In laser anal fistula surgery, the surgeon uses a small laser beam to seal the channel. This procedure is a painless, minimally invasive method with no cuts or stitches. The surgeon has good control over the treatment procedure with no major safety concerns for incontinence.
