What is a fissure?

A fissure is a tear in the lining of the lower rectum (anal canal) that causes pain during bowel movements. Anal fissures don't lead to more serious problems.

Most fissures heal with home treatment after a few days or weeks. If you have an anal fissure that hasn't healed after 8 to 12 weeks, it is considered a long-term chronic fissure. A chronic fissure may need medical treatment.

Anal fissures are a common problem. They affect people of all ages, especially young and otherwise healthy people.

Our Range of Treatments

IThe appendix is ​​mostly removed using minimally invasive surgical techniques using small skin incisions and imaging techniques ( a special very small camera so-called keyhole surgery).

If complications arise, surgery through an open abdominal incision may be required (for example, if an appendix has ruptured into the abdominal cavity or if there is an abscess).

Our experienced specialists will explain all the steps to you in advance of an operation.

Causes

Hard stool caused by chronic constipation may damage the anal skin, furthermore anal stress in the sense of diarrhea is often the reason for anal fissures.

Diagnosis

A doctor can diagnose an anal fissure based on your symptoms and a physical exam. The exam may include:

  • Examining the fissure by gently separating the buttocks.
  • A digital rectal exam. The doctor inserts a gloved finger into the anal canal.
  • Anoscopy. This involves using a short, lighted scope to look into the anal canal.

Treatment

About 9 out of 10 short-term fissures heal with home treatment—including using stool softeners or fiber supplements. And about 4 out of 10 long-term anal fissures will heal after home treatment.

But not all fissures will heal with just home treatment. If a fissure lasts more than 8 to 12 weeks, you may need prescribed medicines.

If medicines don't stop your symptoms, you may need to consider surgery. The most commonly used surgery is lateral internal sphincterotomy. In this procedure, a doctor cuts into part of the internal sphincter to relax the spasm that is causing the fissure.
