Removal of fistula tract feasible without harming the sphincter – fast recovery and convincing results – more information at info-analfistel.de/en
Jena, July 9, 2014 – Surgery of anal fistula successful, patient incontinent. Those affected often have to face this bitter truth after a surgical procedure. Despite medicals taking highest caution and effort when splitting the anal fistula, “rectal incontinence” is unfortunately a common finding after surgery. The bigger the sphincter mass that lies beneath the fistula, the higher the risk. Even though the sphincter can be stitched, this suture can loosen over time. The result is rectal incontinence, meaning bowel movements and winds cannot be wilfully withhold.
Hence patients are often looking for a therapy which removes anal fistulas effectively and as painlessly as possible, which shortens the period of recovery, but which also strongly considers the preservation of continence. These demands are especially met by modern laser therapy FiLaC®. The pioneering medical LEONARDO® laser and the innovative laser probe by biolitec® achieve excellent results in the removal of anal fistulas.
Laser light and slowly withdrawing the probe close the anal fistula like a zipper. The laser treatment takes only a few minutes and opens up the possibility to completely spare the enucleation of the fistula from healthy tissue. The specially designed laser probe is very flexible and can be applied no matter what the length of the fistula tract is. The limited penetration depth of the laser light is highly muscle-protecting, but still effective enough to close the fistula.
As a result, the sphincter remains untouched. The innovative laser treatment FiLaC® does not involve a scalpel. Surgery of anal fistulas successful, patient satisfied.
