Anal Fistula


Anal fistulas are usually caused by an abscess in the anal area due to infection. Patients often experience recurrent infection with intermittent drainage of pus from the anal’s opening. Abscess formation can be easily treated using incision and drainage (I&D), antibiotics, and frequent Sitz baths.

Patients with chronic complicated fistulas are treated with a fistulotomy or fistulectomy, including cutting setons, advancement flaps or muscle repair and fibrin glue injection.
