Low 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 Low End Fistulectomy

Individuals who have been diagnosed with an anal fistula located close to the anal verge are candidates for low end fistulectomy. The procedure is usually recommended for those experiencing persistent symptoms such as pain, swelling, drainage of pus or blood, and recurrent infections.

When to See a Specialist

If you experience symptoms of an anal fistula, such as pain, swelling, or drainage of pus, it is essential to seek medical attention. A specialist in colorectal surgery or proctology can evaluate your condition, perform a physical examination, and determine the appropriate treatment plan, which may include low end fistulectomy.


  • Anesthesia: General anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation is administered to ensure the patient’s comfort during the surgery.
  • Incision: The surgeon makes an incision in the skin surrounding the anal fistula to expose the tract.
  • Tract Excision: The fistula tract is carefully dissected and excised from the surrounding tissues.
  • Closure: The remaining healthy tissue is sutured closed, and the wound is dressed.

Road to Recovery

Recovery after low end fistulectomy may involve the following:

  • Hospital Stay: Most patients can go home on the same day after the surgery.
  • Pain Management: Pain medication may be prescribed to manage post-operative discomfort.
  • Wound Care: Proper wound care is essential to promote healing and prevent infection.
  • Resuming Activities: Patients are usually advised to avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks and follow their surgeon’s recommendations for a full recovery.

Risk Management

Low end fistulectomy is considered a safe procedure, but like any surgery, there are potential risks and complications, including:

  • Infection at the surgical site.
  • Recurrence of the fistula.
  • Bleeding.
  • Delayed wound healing.
  • Damage to surrounding structures.

Benefits of Low End Fistulectomy

  • Resolution of Symptoms: Low end fistulectomy can effectively treat the anal fistula and alleviate associated symptoms.
  • Improved Quality of Life: By resolving pain and discomfort, the procedure can improve the patient’s quality of life.
