Anal Fistula Treatment Market Overview 2030

An anal fistula is a small tunnel that connects an abscess, an infected cavity in the anus, to an opening on the skin around the anus. They are usually the result of an infection near the anus, which causes a collection of pus (abscess) in the nearby tissue. Even after the pus drains away, a small channel is left behind. Anal fistulas can cause unpleasant symptoms, such as discomfort, skin irritation, and most of the time they do not get better on their own. Surgery is recommended in most of the cases.

Symptoms include pain, swelling, and discharge of blood or pus from the anus. People may experience pain areas in the rectum, discharge or bleeding from anus, and perianal swelling is also common. An anal fistula usually develops after an anal abscess (a collection of pus) bursts, or when an abscess has not been completely treated. A fistula can even be caused by conditions that affect the intestines, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or diverticulitis.
