An anal fistula, also known as a fistula-in-ano, is a tunnel that forms between the anus' interior and its outer skin. The muscle aperture where stool leaves the body at the end of the digestive system is called the anus.
An infection that develops in the anal gland is what leads to the majority of anal fistulas. The infection causes an abscess, which either drains naturally or is surgically removed through the skin adjacent to the anus. The tube that develops beneath the skin along this drainage channel is known as a fistula. The anal canal or gland is connected to the anus by a tunnel that runs through the skin.
You are able to regulate the release of faeces thanks to sphincter muscle rings at the aperture of the anus. These sphincter muscles' involvement in fistulas is used to categorise them. The surgeon can choose among several treatments thanks to this classification.
