Fissure Disease Treatment
Fissure disease, also known as anal fissures, is a common condition that affects the anal canal. It is characterized by small tears or cracks in the lining of the anus, resulting in intense pain and discomfort during bowel movements.
Types of Fissure
There are two main types of fissure disease: Acute and Chronic.
- Acute fissures are typically caused by trauma to the anal region, often due to passing hard stools or straining during bowel movements.
- Chronic fissures are typically associated with an underlying condition such as inflammatory bowel disease or persistently hard stools. These fissures tend to be larger and more painful than acute ones
Causes of Fissure Disease
This condition can be caused by various factors, including
- trauma to the area,
- chronic diarrhea, or conditions such as
- Crohn’s disease.
Symptoms of Fissure Disease
Symptoms may include
- bleeding after bowel movements,
- itching or
- burning sensation around the anus, and
- spasms in the anal sphincter muscles.
Ksharsutra Treatment For Fissure Disease
Ksharsutra treatment is a highly effective and specialized procedure used for the management of Fissure Disease. This treatment involves the application of a medicated thread, known as Ksharsutra, to the affected area. The thread is made up of various medicinal herbs that possess potent healing properties.
This treatment method has gained popularity due to its non-surgical nature and high success rates. During the procedure, the ksharsutra gradually cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoidal mass, leading to its shrinkage and eventual drying up.
The herbs present in the ksharsutra have anti-inflammatory and analgesic actions, providing relief from associated symptoms like pain and itching. The advantage of this therapy over conventional surgical interventions lies in minimal post-operative complications and faster recovery time.
