  • Anorectal sepsis can be complicated by a fistula in ano in about 50% of patients during the acute phase of sepsis or within 6 months thereafter.
  • A fistula in ano forms during the chronic stage of an acute inflammatory process that begins in the intersphincteric anal glands.
  • The fistula tracts will follow the course of the original
    abscess cavities and subsequent external drainage.

Causative agents

  • Escherichia coli 60%
  • Staphylococcus aureus 23%
  • Streptococcus, B.Proteus 17%
  • Always mixed infection

Source of Infection

  • Cryptoglandular infection 90%
  • Penetration of rectal wall
    (bone piece, fish bone or any FB)

  • malignancies of the distal rectum, anal
    canal or perianal
  • skin tuberculosis;
  • actinomycosis.

Goodsall’s rule

  • If the anus is bisected by a line in the frontal plane, an external opening inferior to that line connects to the internal opening via a short direct tract.
  • if the external opening is posterior to this imaginary line, the fistula tract follows a curved route to the internal opening in the posterior midline.

Goodsall’s rule Classification of FIA

  • Intersphincteric (the most common): The fistula track is confined to the intersphincteric plane.
  • Trans-sphincteric: The fistula connects the intersphincteric plane with the ischiorectal fossa by perforating the external sphincter.
  • Suprasphincteric: Similar to trans-sphincteric, but the track loops over the external sphincter and perforates the levator ani.
  • Extrasphincteric: The track passes from the rectum to perineal skin, completely external to the sphincteric complex.  Clinical classification

    • Hello Ritesh ,
      your surgery is sphinctrectomy which is just cutting your sphincter muscles to loos the tightness of the anal sphincter which is normal process but it have sometimes complications like incontinence , ksharsutra is preferred over this process due to no complications.
      you can’t do anything about it now just wait for the recovery. ans consult the surgeon if any problem occurs .

      kshar sutra for fistula is different for different patients as the track is differ for each, so the time is varies from 1hr to 2hr as an average and ata our center we uses proper care about pain depend on the patients we use Anesthesia which suits the patients for pain less surgery.
