FiLaC®(Fistula-tract Laser Closure): gentle and nearly painless biolitec® laser treatment of anal fistula – for more information please visit: info-analfistel.de/en
Jena, 20 December 2013 – An anal fistula is an unnatural passageway between the intestines and the gluteal skin surface. Frequently, anal fistulae are caused by formerly suffered abscesses and cause unpleasant itching and pain. Innovative FiLaC® laser therapy by biolitec® now allows for purposefully closing the fistula tract internally while conserving the surrounding tissue. Within the scope of this nearly painless laser therapy, an innovative laser probe serves to radially introduce defined energy into the fistula tract in order to destroy the fistula´s tissue in a controlled way. Slowly retracting the probe closes the fistula gradually like a zipper. The probe is highly flexible and thus well deployed even in winding tracts, independent of the fistula tract´s length. This method obviates any need for enucleating the fistula from sound tissue. The laser treatment takes only a few minutes. Compared to surgery, this kind of treatment additionally enables patients to quickly re-enter their everyday life thanks to the cut-free procedure, which provides for the sphincter´s and continence”s maximum conservation and quicker healing. Another special feature related to biolitec®”s advanced laser therapy is the fact that it can be combined with various other kinds of treatment. Usually, patients who hold a valid health insurance will get the costs related to the minimally-invasive in-patient treatment reimbursed.
