We find that there is frequently confusion regarding piles, fistula, and fissures. People often mistake one of these three conditions for the other.
Piles are swollen blood vessels – much like varicose veins – around the anus.
An anal fissure is a small crack or tear in the anal tissue – in other words: the lining of the anal canal.
A fistula is an abnormal channel that develops between the anal canal and the surrounding skin.
How do you treat an anal fistula?
It helps to think of a fistula as a very small tunnel or tract. The tract usually starts in the rectum, and leads to an opening in the skin near the anus. Usually, a fistula develops in response to inflammation or infection in an anal gland. The fistula discharges pus, either constantly or intermittently.
Patients who suffer from an inflammatory bowel disease, such as colitis or Crohn’s disease, are at a much higher risk of developing anal abscesses and anal fistulae.
Because infection is present, the first course of treatment for an anal fissure is usually antibiotics. If the fissure does not respond to antibiotic treatment, then the next course of action is surgery. Surgical treatment at our fissure and fistula clinic Brisbane is usually incredibly effective.
It is worth noting that patients who present with an anal fistula often have an abscess at the same time. An abscess is a collection of pus, which is both uncomfortable and painful. It needs to be drained in a medical setting to prevent the spread of infection. In order to promote the healing process and improve your comfort, we drain these abscesses in theatre.

We provide effective treatment for anal fissures.
An anal fissure often develops into an ulcer and is associated with spasms of the anal sphincter muscle. There are several conditions that can cause an anal fissure. These include:
- severe diarrhea
- a childbirth injury in the area of the anus
If initial treatments don’t help the anal fissure to heal, surgery is an effective solution. You can expect expert corrective anal fissure surgery at our fissure and fistula clinic Brisbane. The vast majority of our patients don’t experience problems with fissures following surgery.
We educate our patients about following a diet with sufficient dietary fibre to ensure regular bowel movements. This helps tremendously to prevent any further anal fissures from developing. In the rare case that a patient suffers from chronic anal fissures, we can perform an operation on the internal anal sphincter muscle, know as a lateral internal sphincterotomy.
