Treatment of complex anal fistula has always been a nightmare for surgeonsby conventional means.
Even the lowest and simple looking fistula at times comes out to be a complex one with high incidence of recurrence above 20 %.
Most of the availability diagnostic including MRI is nit conclusive and many a times the surgeon remains in a state of confusion as to what is going to come at the operation table.
The conventional treatment modalities also usually leave the patient wounded needing almost 6 to 12 weeks to heal with a risk of sphincter damage and a high risk of recurrence.
We would be presenting the technical details and results of our series of 210 cases of complex anal fistula treated by Video assisted endoscopic therapy.
Presented at the SAGES 2017 Annual Meeting in Houston, TX.
