People tend to delay treatment, even if it is very necessary, because of fear of a serious interference into his body from the outside. For example, if you need to do the surgery. It may be minor, but there is always a significant recovery period afterwards. One of such problems, which is laid apart, is an anal fissure. But what if we tell you that no surgery will be there?
By prevalence this problem takes in proctologic practice an honourable second place, behind only the hemorrhoids. With the acute fissures people rarely go to the doctor, trying to recover on their own. Chronic fissures constitute about 80% of all visits.
Treatment of fractures of rectum without an operation is possible only in its acute period.
The therapeutic measures include:
- normalization of defecation by mild laxatives administration;
- well-chosen diet;
- quality rectal suppositories and ointments.
If the conservative treatment is under the supervision of a specialist, recovery will come in the short term. If time is lost, and the acute process changed into the chronic one – only a surgery on an anal fissure can save.
In addition to the classical surgical excision of cicatricial defect of the anus, there widely used methods of electrocoagulation, laser and radiofrequency cautery of fissures. How much does each of these operations cost, depends on the quality of the equipment of the proctology department and the level of qualification of specialists working in it.
Anal fissure and surgery on it – it is a matter of choice. However, the greatest trust of physicians and patients is deserved by the innovative minimally invasive techniques. But the most effective of them is radio frequency. The surgery is made with a radio-frequency device "Surgitron". It operates in the power saving and almost bloodless mode, vaporizing tissue and leaving the material for formation of rough scars.
Radiofrequency surgery of chronic anal fissures is performed under local anesthesia, and takes only 15-20 minutes. Even the most painful and long-term tonic spasm of the anal sphincter disappears the next day after the operation – and complete recovery occurs within a month. No bleeding, no period of rehabilitation!
The fissure of the rectum and surgery – it's not a terrible diagnosis, if it is taken by coloproctology department of DoktorPROmedical centre. Here, the operation on the anal fissure is performed only by minimally invasive techniques, allowing to achieve aesthetically pleasing results and speed up the postoperative recovery.
