The outer part of our digestive system through which waste is expelled out from the body is called the anus. It is surrounded by the sphincter muscles which open and closes for passing the stools. The anus also has a network of blood vessels and nerve cells. An anal fissure is a condition that affects the anal region. The condition is characterized by the development of an open sore or a tear in the anal skin which causes severe pain with bleeding. The reason for fissure is trauma inside the inner lining of the anus. A hard bowel is however responsible for fissure but chronic diarrhea can also be one of the causes. Delay in diagnosis may lead to an acute fissure that is more difficult to treat.
When conservative attempts fail, or when the fissure gets chronic, a Proctologist recommends surgery.
Several cuts are been made in the anal sphincter muscles with Laser that reduce the pressure in the anal region and facilitate the healing of anal fissures. Advantages of Laser treatment: • Minimally invasive • Local anesthesia • Same-day-discharge • Minimal post-surgical pain • Quick recovery • Low blood loss
It is a surgical procedure for the treatment of chronic anal fissures. It is a very safe sphincter-sparing surgical option that provides a quicker cure than Fissurectomy and can be considered a first-line treatment option for chronic anal fissures.
Anal Fissures and Anal Fistula are two different types of anorectal diseases. An abnormal passage-like connection between the bowel and perianal skin is the anal fistula and anal fissure is a small tear-like cut in the lining of the anus.
An anal fissure is a small tear or cuts in the lining of the anus. Whereas haemorrhoids are a group of inflamed and swollen tissues in the anal area.
Anorectal surgeons and proctologists perform Laser surgery within 15 to 45 minutes, but the duration of the surgery depends on the severity of fissures and varies from person to person.
Like any other small tears or cuts on the skin, anal fissures can also be cured at home, but extra care needs to be taken. If the severity of pain increases, then expert intervention is a must.
Surgery is considered to be the permanent solution for anal fissures. Consult an expert if you notice any of the signs and symptoms
