Fissure Diagnosis and Treatment Options

A doctor will conduct a diagnosis before suggesting an appropriate fissure treatment. The diagnosis of the fissure is first conducted by the doctor through an external visual examination of the anus. The doctor may also recommend certain diagnostic tests like anoscopy, colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. All of these methods image the internal part of the anus or the intestines to determine the fissuring. All diagnostic tests are taken care of when you book your surgery with PharmEasy.

Here are some surgical options for the treatment of anal fissure:

  • Option 1 · Doctor Recommended

    Lateral Sphincterotomy

    Lateral sphincterotomy is the most recommended fissure surgery by doctors. The procedure is painless and is the least invasive fissure surgery procedure. The process involves making an incision in the sphincter muscle (i.e the anal muscle that helps with the passage of stool) with the use of a highly precise laser beam. This helps ease the tension on the fissure and allows the affected area to heal. The procedure is very simple and it helps eliminate the chances of recurrence.

  • Option 2

    Advancement Anal Flaps

    This anal fissure surgery is usually undertaken to cure cases of a chronic fissure. In this surgery, healthy tissue is taken from another part of the body and used to repair the damage caused by the fissure.

What is the meaning of fissure?

  • Anal Fissure Symptoms

    • Pain in the anus region Anal fissure causes a lot of pain in and around the anus which exaggerates while passing stools and is persistent even after it.

    • Painful bowel movement Experiencing painful bowel movements is an indicator of an anal fissure.

    • Passage of blood with stool If you notice bright red blood being passed along with the stool, it may be an indicator of a fissure.

    • Visible crack on the skin Fissure can cause a visible tear or crack in the skin near the region of the anus and the surrounding area.

    • Skin tag near the anus Skin tags are small outgrowths of the skin that can form as a result of anal fissure.

    • Burning sensation Burning sensation in the anal passage or the region surrounding the anus is also an indicator of a fissure.

    • Discharge from anus An anal fissure can lead to infection in the anus leading to the discharge of foul-smelling fluids.

  • Anal Fissure Causes

    • Chronic Constipation Chronic constipation can cause difficulties in the passage of stool since it causes the stool to harden. The passage of stool during constipation can cause tears in the inner lining of the anus leading to anal fissure.

    • Strained Bowel Movement Strained bowel movements can cause stress on the anus leading to cuts on the inner lining.

    • Prolonged Diarrhoea Prolonged diarrhoea causes strain on the anus which can lead to the development of fissure.

    • Anal Sex The performance of anal sex can cause stress on the anus and cause tears inside the anus.

    • Trauma Trauma on the anus due to surgery, insertion of foreign objects or accidental trauma can cause cuts in the inner lining of the anus.

    • Crohn’s Disease Crohn’s disease is an autoimmune disease that causes irritable bowel. This leads to pressure on the anus resulting in fissure.

    • Sexually Transmitted Disease STD’s like gonorrhoea or HIV and AIDS can also lead to the development of anal fissure.

The term fissure here refers to an anal fissure, which is a painful condition affecting the anus region of the body. An anal fissure refers to a cut or a thin tear in the tissue that lines the inner part of the anus. A fissure is similar to a crack and it can even cause muscle around the anus to get exposed.

Anal fissure are very painful and they can affect people of all ages (from infants to the elderly). Surgery is the best fissure treatment and the procedure is simple.
