Many a times unless we suffer from a certain diseases we never get an idea of that disease. And even if we get through that symptom sometimes we don’t understand through which phase of diseases we are suffering from. Similarly, Anal Fistula (Bhagandar) is one of the ailments that most of the people suffer from but are not aware. Anal Fistula (Bhagandar) is an abnormal communication between the anus and perianal skin. Most anal fistulas are the result of an infection in an anal gland that spreads to the skin. The common symptoms of Fistula are extreme anal pain, Non-healing anal wounds, discharging boils formed near the anus, Pus & watery discharge along with fever and chills.
Based on the symptoms of fistula, it is diagnosed by Proctoscopy or MRI Fistulogram. Based on your medical reports, your doctors will advise you to undergo one of the following treatments:
1. VAAFT- Also known as Video Assisted Anal Fistula Treatment. It is an innovative technology for selected fistula cases only.
2. Ksharsutra- It is a traditional ayurvedic therapy.
3. Fistulectomy- The fistula tract is totally taken out using an advanced radiofrequency device under a strong light source.
4. FiLAC- It is known as Fistula Laser Closure. It’s a procedure performed with the help of the Leonardo Laser Device that gently and effectively cures the anal fistula and also prevents the damage to the sphincter.
Treatment of fistula on timely manner is very important to avoid the future complications.
