Fistula Treatment in Chennai

Definition :

A fistula-in-ano is an abnormal hollow tract or cavity that is lined with granulation tissue and that connects a primary opening inside the anal canal to a secondary opening in the perianal skin; secondary tracts may be multiple and can extend from the same primary opening. It should be differentiated from the following processes, which do not communicate with the anal canal.

  • Hidradenitis suppurativa
  • Infected inclusion cysts
  • Pilonidal disease
  • Bartholin gland abscess in females
  • Fistula in Anus(ano) is a small tunnel that connects an infected gland inside the anus to an opening on the skin around the anus.

  • Radiation (treatment for cancer)
  • Trauma
  • Sexually transmitted diseases

  • Cancer.

When fistulas are found in other locations, they are often associated with secondary conditions

  • Intestinal inflammatory disease
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Trauma
  • Tumors including leukemia
  • Tuberculosis
  • Anorectal cancer
  • - HIV which is associated with anal abscesses and/or fistulas

Types of fistulas include:
