What is the Surgery for Anal Fistula?
A fistulotomy is a surgical procedure to treat an Anal Fistula, which is an abnormal passage leading from the anal canal to the skin near the anus. During the Surgery of Anal Fistula, the passage is opened, merging the Fistula with the anal canal. The tissue is then given a chance to heal after the pus is drained.
A fistulotomy is the surgical opening or removal of a fistulous tract. They can be performed by excision of the tract and surrounding tissue, simple division of the tract, or gradual division and assisted drainage of the tract by means of a Seton; a cord passed through the tract in a loop which is slowly tightened over a period of days or weeks. Fistulas can occur in various areas of the human body and the location of the Fistula influences the necessity of the procedure. Some, such as the ano-vaginal and Perianal fistulas are chronic conditions and will never heal without surgical intervention.
