Anal fistula

Posted Jun 02 2009 4:38pm

What is anal fistula?
Anal fistulae originate from the anal glands, which are located between the two layers of the anal sphincters and which drain into the anal canal. If the outlet of these glands becomes blocked, an abscess can form which can eventually point to the skin surface. The tract formed by this process is the fistula. Definitive treatment of a fistula aims to help stop its recurrence.

What are the commonly done surgeries?
Laying open of low fistula in ano, Laying open of high fistula in ano + seton tie, Seton revision, Seton Removal, Excision of fistula-in-ano.
