Anal fistulas: minimally invasive treatment
An anal fistula is an abnormal channel between the bowel and the skin surface in the anal area. Anal fistulas mostly arise as the result of an abscess that has opened spontaneously. They are less commonly the result of chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
A gentle procedure
The FiLaC® laser procedure makes a new, gentle treatment alternative available to the treating proctologist or surgeon. The treatment is virtually pain-free and convalescence is noticeably shorter than with conventional surgical methods.
Anal fistulas should not be confused with pathologically enlarged hemorrhoids, although they are just as unpleasant. For information about hemorrhoids, see www.info-haemorrhoiden.de/en/.
