Anal fistula surgery is a procedure that removes the infected tissue that has formed an opening in the anal canal. An anal fistula is a disease that causes a rupture in the anal canal, which leads to an abscess. This disease is usually caused by chronic constipation, which leads to the formation of hard stool that can't be eliminated. This leads to the anus becoming inflamed and infected, which eventually leads to an abscess. This condition is painful and can lead to other health problems.
If left untreated, the infection can worsen and lead to more serious complications like abscesses, bowel obstruction, and even the need for surgery. The condition is usually caused by long-term inflammation of the anal canal and is usually chronic and difficult to treat. However, with the use of products such as anaesthetic ointments, healing creams, and topical treatments, anal fistulas can be treated without surgery.
A physician can diagnose an anal fistula by performing a physical exam and looking for any discharge around the anus. Treatment for an anal fistula includes repairing the tract and relieving any symptoms. Options for treatment include surgery, anorectal manometry, and biofeedback. Surgery is the most common treatment for anal fistulas and may be performed under general anaesthesia or spinal anaesthesia. The surgeon will clean the fistula tract and place a flap of tissue over it to keep it closed.

Fistula treatment surgery is a surgical procedure done to repair or close off a connection between two organs that causes urine to leak from the vagina or anus or the faecal matter to go into the urinary tract. The surgery is typically done by an obstetrician, gynaecologist, or colorectal surgeon.
The typical surgery to treat a rectovaginal fistula is called a colostomy, where a section of the colon is diverted through an opening in the abdominal wall. The procedure is typically done through a surgical incision in the abdomen and can be done in two stages. In the first stage, the opening in the abdominal wall is made and the colon is diverted.
The patient is left with a temporary ileostomy. In the second stage, the fistula is closed and the colon is reconnected to the rectum.
The ileostomy is then reversed. Surgery to treat a rectovaginal fistula can be complicated and it may not be successful. In addition, there are other risks that come with surgery including pain, infection, and other complications. If you have a rectovaginal fistula, your doctor may recommend you avoid any constipation, do not strain when having a bowel movement, and drink plenty of fluids. You may also be given a stool softener to avoid straining.
