An anal fissure is a tear or cuts in the anal lining. The crack developed in the skin can cause extreme pain and even lead to bleeding after you pass stools. The fissures can become very deep and the muscle tissue beneath it can be seen. Generally, it is not a serious condition, but it can affect people of all age groups. Usually, it should heal within four weeks, but when it doesn’t, treatment is very important.

How is it diagnosed?
By simply examining the condition, your doctor will be able to check for fissures. However, with the help of the rectal exam, the condition may be confirmed. What happens during this exam is that an anoscope is inserted into the rectum to take a look at the tear. It is a thin tube that enables the doctor to take a look at the anal canal. Anoscope also helps identify other causes of pain, such as piles. Endoscopy may also be performed.
How are fissures treated?

What are the other innovative treatments at Apollo Spectra?
When the fissures don’t heal by 6 weeks, it is known as a chronic fissure. It is extremely difficult to locate and may also lead to a skin tag known as sentinel pile. For chronic fissures, the innovative methods used are;

  • Botulinum A toxin injection – It is Botox, which is injected into the inside of the anal sphincter in order to keep it relaxed. This effect stays for almost 3 months and by that time the fissures will heal.
  • Partial Lateral Internal Sphincterotomy – This is a minimally invasive procedure, which is conducted under the general anesthesia. During this procedure, a cut is made in the insides of the sphincter. It provides pain relief and the straining is reduced. To perform this surgery, necessary skills are required, which our specialists at Apollo Spectra have.
  • Laser treatment for fissure in Pune – The laser treatment is extremely beneficial and promotes faster healing. The laser treatment is performed on the insides of the sphincterotomy. It is a bloodless procedure and the surgeons make sure they perform the treatment methodically and accurately. Also, with this treatment, the chronic fibrosis scar is reduced with a laser. It prevents any discomfort and recovery is also quicker.
