Fistula Treatment Surgery

Primus experienced surgeons perform procedures through small incisions in your body. The minimally invasive procedure speeds your recovery, minimizes scarring, and lowers the risk of injury to other organs.

A fistula-in-ano is an abnormal tract or cavity with an external opening in the perianal area that is communicating with the rectum or anal canal by an identifiable internal opening. Most fistulas are thought to arise as a result of cryptoglandular infection with resultant perirectal abscess.

LIFT Procedure for Fistula Repair

LIFT procedure or ”Ligation of Intersphincteric Fistula Tract” is an operation used to treat fistulae that are not amenable to laying open. Usually these fistulas involve more muscle, and hence the fistula cannot be layed open or cut safely.

The procedure aims to tie off and close the fistula tract or “tunnel” as it travels between the internal and external sphincter muscle.

The operation is done once the fistula tract is well delineated and there is no other infection. Usually there will be at least one previous operation performed to control the infection or abscess, and inserted a seton to drain it well.

The operation is usually carried out as day surgery. You may be prescribed antibiotics for a week, and simple analgesia.

Sometimes the operation deals with half of the fistula, and the remaining tract can be safely layed open only cutting a small amount of internal sphincter muscle, rather than both the internal and external muscle. There is less chance of faecal incontinence in these cases.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What does Minimal Access Surgery Mean?

It is a highly developed technique for doing all types of surgical procedures. It is also known as Laparoscopic Surgery, Keyhole Surgery or Band-Aid surgery. A thin telescope known as laparoscope and working instruments are inserted through small incisions (3-12mm) in the abdominal wall and the laparoscope is attached to a tiny video camera which shows the inside view of patient’s body to a high resolution in the monitors. These incisions are usually covered with surgical glue/ closed with absorbable sutures and after a few weeks are barely visible thus avoiding any follow-up visit for suture removal.

What are the benefits of Minimal Access Surgery?

There are several advantages like

  • Rapid recovery,
  • Hospital stay are shorter
  • Negligible pain
  • Minimal scarring,
  • Back to daily routine within few days

How long will be my hospital stay?

Minimal Access surgery or the laparoscopic surgery reduces the hospital stay by half. In some MAS the patient can be discharged on the same day.
