High end fistulectomy

A fistulectomy is a surgical procedure performed for the treatment of a fistula, an abnormal connection between two hollow or tubular organs such as intestines and blood vessels. Although fistulas can develop in different parts of the body, a fistulectomy is more commonly performed on patients with an anal fistula, which forms in between the skin near the anus and the end of the bowel.

Who Needs High-End Fistulectomy

High-end fistulectomy may be recommended for individuals who have a complex anal fistula that has not responded to conservative treatments such as medications or minor surgical procedures. This includes individuals with recurring symptoms, extensive or deep fistulas, multiple tracts, or those at risk of complications such as abscesses or anal incontinence.

When to See a Specialist

If you have persistent symptoms such as chronic pain, swelling, discharge, or recurrent infections around the anus, it is advisable to see a specialist, such as a colorectal surgeon. They can evaluate your condition, perform a thorough examination, and determine if high-end fistulectomy is appropriate for you.


  • Anesthesia: You will be given anesthesia, either general or regional, to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure.
  • Positioning: You will be placed in the appropriate position for the surgery, typically lying on your abdomen with your legs spread apart.
  • Incision and identification: The surgeon will make an incision in the area surrounding the fistula to expose the tract.
  • Dissection and removal: The fistula tract is carefully dissected and removed, ensuring complete removal and preservation of surrounding healthy tissues.
  • Closure: The wound is closed using sutures or other techniques to promote healing and minimize the risk of recurrence.
  • Dressing and recovery: A sterile dressing will be applied to the surgical site, and you will be monitored in the recovery area until you are awake and stable.

Road to Recovery

Recovery after high-end fistulectomy may take several weeks. You may experience some pain, swelling, and discomfort in the anal area during this time. Your healthcare team will provide instructions on pain management, wound care, dietary modifications, and proper hygiene practices to promote healing and prevent complications.

Risk Management

While high-end fistulectomy is generally safe, there are potential risks and complications associated with the procedure, including:

  • Pain and discomfort
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Anal incontinence (rare)
  • Fistula recurrence (in some cases)

Benefits of High-End Fistulectomy

  • Effective treatment: High-end fistulectomy offers a high success rate in removing complex anal fistulas and promoting healing.
  • Symptom relief: The procedure aims to alleviate pain, swelling, discharge, and recurrent infections associated with anal fistulas.
  • Reduced risk of complications: By removing the fistula and promoting healing, high-end fistulectomy can help prevent complications such as abscesses and anal incontinence.
