Solutions for complex anal fistulas and Haemorrhoids
Anal fissures and haemorrhoids are painful and the best option for treatment is surgery. The most common type of surgery for anal fistulas is a fistulotomy. This involves cutting along the whole length of the fistula to open it up so it heals as a flat scar. Haemorrhoidectomy is surgery to remove internal or external haemorrhoids that are extensive or severe. The many types of haemorrhoid surgery include closed, stapled and open haemorrhoidectomy, Rubberband Ligation and Lateral Internal Sphincterotomy.
Complexities of complex anal fistulas and Haemorrhoids
Risks of anal fistula operation are uncommon, but can include infection resulting in an anal abscess; damage to the sphincter muscles - this may affect your bowel control and can lead to faecal incontinence. Pain, bleeding, and an inability to urinate (urinary retention) are the most common side effects of haemorrhoidectomy.
