Jeddah experience in the management of high anal fistula

, : Jeddah experience in the management of high anal fistula. Annals of Saudi Medicine 11(4): 381-384

Twenty-six (26) transsphincteric anal fistulae with secondary high extensions and sixteen (16) suprasphincteric anal fistulae with secondary high extensions have been treated successfully over a period of 3 years. The operative technique depends on exploration of the intersphincteric plane with removal of the primary source of the infection, together with excision of the primary tract, and drainage of the secondary high extensions. The patients have been followed for 2 years without recurrence. Continence for flatus and liquid feces was 92.1% and 96.15%, respectively, in the transsphincteric and 75% and 93.75%, respectively, in the suprasphincteric group but the continence for solid feces was 100% in both. Thus, the so-called excision technique for treatment of high fistula is safe and results are excellent.

Since the cornea is an avascular tissue, recruitment of granulocytes such as neutrophils and eosinophils into th...
