A fissure is a small split or tear in the thin moist tissue (mucosa) lining the lower rectum (anus). It is very common in infants but may occur at any age, however, the rate of anal fissures decreases with age. Fissures are much less common among school-aged children than infants. In adults, fissures is caused by constipation, the passing of large, hard stools or prolonged diarrhea. In older adults, anal fissures is caused by decreased blood flow to the infected area. Anal fissures are also common in women after childbirth and persons with Crohn’s disease. The treatment of anal fissures is very important in order to reduce pain and to heal wounds. ClinTech Medical center provides the best Treatment for Fissures in Mumbai. This treatment includes Chemical Sphincterotomy and Percutaneous Closed Lateral Internal Sphincterotomy.
In Chemical Sphincterotomy, Botox is injected into the anal sphincter for curing anal fissures. It is a very common Treatment for Anal Fissures. The only reason that the cure of anal fissure is delayed is due to the spasm of the internal anal sphincter muscle that lowers down the blood supply to that area and results in more irritation to the fissures during the passage of motion through a spasmodic anal canal. The Botox prevents spasm and causes a momentary paralytic relaxation until the tissues are renewed. The effects last for three months and the anal fissures heal during that time.
Percutaneous Closed Lateral Internal Sphincterotomy is a surgical method popularly known as CLIS. It is a quick and minimal invasive method performed on the internal part of the anal muscle. The internal anal sphincter is administered under local anesthesia in order to treat chronic anal fissures. This surgical process basically lessens the pressure of the internal anal sphincter and the contraction is reduced by isolating this internal anal sphincter. The fissure is cured as the anal spasm is reduced and blood flow to the area is improved. With this technique, the wound is smaller and heals faster.
