What is an anal fistula - Anal Fistula Types and Treatment ?

by Glamyo Health Glamyo Health - India's Leading Healthcare Network

An Anal fistula is an inner channel or tunnel of the anus to the outside (skin) of the anus. The abscess is usually produced around anus in the skin, followed by the collection and discharge of very small wastes (pus). The medications that can be employed to relieve fistula and surgical treatment alternatives are briefly mentioned in this article.


Antibiotics like ciprofloxacin and metronidazole may help reduce fistula discharge and comfort the patient. Fistula may also be helped with azathioprine. If the antibiotics and azathioprin are not beneficial, you can also take one of the biologic medications (or anti-TNF) such as: infliximab, adalimumab, and certolizumab.

Options for Fistula Treatment in Delhi

There are two surgical methods available for Anal Fistula: traditional and modern procedures. A traditional method is a fistulotomy, which means that a surgeon can remove the full content of the anal tract along the whole length of the fistula. Modern technique includes: Video Assisted Anal Fistula Treatment (VAAFT), Mucosal advancement flap procedure, Setons, Ligation of Intersphincteric Fistula tract (LIFT), Fistula plug, Fistula-tract laser closure (Filac), and Distal Ligation Proximal laser (DLPL).

VAAFT uses a novel technique, which can assist surgeons discover another hole of fistula away from the primary fistula and which need repair.

 The Seton is a "wick" which removes infected tissue or pus. 

A fistula plug is a 100% bio-absorbing scaffold. This method helps to remove the fistula carefully without injuring the muscle of the sphincter.

 Laser Closure Fistula tract (FiLaC) aims to remove the fistula tract carefully without harming the muscle of the sphincter. A laser fibre is radially emitted from the outside, and a specific amount of laser energy is subsequently released to the fistula tract spirally. 

The main aim of most methods such as VAAFT, LIFT and FiLaC is to close the fistula and to save the sphincter muscle.
