What is Anal Fistula?

A tunnel that extends from the anal opening and joins the skin surrounding it is known as an anal fistula. An infection that did not cure completely is the main cause of an anal fistula. Anus refers to the outer hole of a human body through which feces are expelled. Inside the anus are several tiny glands that produce mucus. An abscess may form when these glands get clogged and infected as a result of dirt and debris. These abscesses typically develop into an anal fistula.

How does Anal fistula form?

If the abscesses that occur near to and around the anal mucosal tissues are not treated, they usually continue to spread and get worse over time. The abscess eventually emerges like a hole that has entered the skin.

The treatment is also carried out under anesthesia (either general or local depending on the patient) which means the patient will not feel any pain or discomfort during the surgery.
