An anal fissure happens when a tear occurs in the skin in the anus region. Anal fissures will be uncomfortable and painful and will cause severe pain during or after defecation. The anal fissure might bleed a bit from time to time. Anal fissures can occur in adults or in children. Anal fissures most often heal by themselves within a few weeks.
Some Fissures can be detected easily. For fissure, The initial diagnosis will begin with a clinical rectal exam. For the best treatment for anal fissure, consult a Doctor. Depending on the severity, the Doctor would recommend surgery as a permanent solution for fissure.
After carefully inspecting the anal canal with a short, rigid anoscope, the anal fissure is identified. The operation has 2 surgical approaches: open or closed lateral internal sphincterotomy.
A small incision is made on the left or right side of the anal skin to expose the internal sphincter muscle fibers. The surgeon then lifts up the internal anal sphincter muscle and divides it using a thermal cautery or knife. Cutting the muscle will lower the pressure in the anus and allow the fissure to heal.
This is similar to the open technique, but here the surgeon will feel for a groove between the internal and external sphincter muscles. Once the groove is identified, a scalpel is then inserted into this space and is carefully turned towards the internal sphincter, and then the muscle is divided.Both types of surgery usually take less than 30 minutes to complete.
