Anal Fissure Treatment

Compare 14 clinics

Anal fissure is an ulcer or tear in the lining of one’s anal canal. While many people confuse anal fissure with hemorrhoids, it is a different medical issue – hemorrhoids are exposed blood vessels while anal fissure is a fissure in one’s anus caused by bad diet or other factors. As a result, anal fissure treatment is quite different from hemorrhoids treatment.
Symptoms of a fissure include fissure pain and bleeding bright blood while defecating.

Anal Fissure Treatment Candidates

Most of the time it is possible to conduct a successful anal fissure treatment without surgery. For many patients it is enough to change to fibre-rich diet and do some sports to cure the anal fissure. Some patients may use anal fissure medications in order to heal fissures.
Only a small minority of patients need anal fissure surgery to get rid of this problem. They usually suffer from chronic anal fissure, constantly reappearing despite using various fissure remedies.

Am I Suitable for Anal Fissure Treatment?

Anal fissure treatment surgery is not a very invasive one and most of the people are eligible to undergo it if anal fissure medicines do not work.

Preparing for Anal Fissure Treatment

An anal fissure surgery is a minor operation. For this reason it does not require an elaborate preparation. It is enough to inform about your medical problems and provide a list of medicines you take. You will be asked to resign from some of them, such as aspirin and other blood-thinning meds. One day before your fissure surgery you will have to empty your colon.

How is Anal Fissure Treatment Performed?

In anal fissure treatment surgery, doctors attempt to cut the internal part of one’s anal sphincter, a muscle ring controlling the anus. In this way pressure on the anal fissure is relieved and it can start to heal.
Fissure surgery is relatively short. Despite the relative safety of this kind of anal fissure treatment, doctors prefer to use general anaesthesia on their patients due to the research suggesting that patients with general anaesthesia more often have good results in their fight with chronic anal fissure.

Anal Fissure Treatment Recovery

Anal fissure recovery time is quite short, 6 weeks tops with just one or two weeks spent away from work. Fissure pain relief comes with time, it is not instant so do not worry if you still feel fissure pain for some days after your annular fissure surgery.

Anal Fissure Treatment Risks and Complications

While anal fissure treatment surgery is a relatively safe one, there is a small possibility of complications such as occurrence of perianal abscess which requires another operation. Additionally, a bleeding may occur as a result of anal fissure surgery.

Anal Fissure Treatment Side Effects

In some patients a fecal incontinence may appear after the anal fissure treatment surgery. However, most of those affected will experience it for a few days or weeks after their anal fissure treatment. Only a very small group will have it permanently and will need to seek medical treatment.
