Fistula In Ano

Fistula is an abnormal connection or tract between two organs or vessels that normally do not connect.

Anal fistula  originate from anal glands which are located between two layers of anal sphincters and they drain into the anal canal. If the outlet of these glands get obstructed an abscess can form which will point to the skin surface. The tract thus formed is called fistula. With ayurvedic treatment we can block the formation of abscess and block the formation of fistula.

Ayurveda

According to ayurveda this is called bhagandara , this condition occur due to doshic vitiation. Each having its special features. All the conditions will have the above mentioned symptoms with difference in nature and colour of discharge and intensity of pain. According to doshic vitiation the number of tracts vary from single tracts to multiple.

Main treatment line for fistula is ksharasutra a special medicated thread processed in different types of strong alkali and herbal powders and is having the power to pierce the skin and cut through the channels and heal the tract.

The wonderful property of cutting and healing is the main advantage of this procedure. This will remove the unhealthy granulation while healing.

In our research centre at KAH in 95% of cases the tracts get completely healed without any complication. Since last 10 years there was no recurrence,  we had patients who had done two or three fistulectomy and got complete cure after ksharasutra.
