Ksharsutra Treatment {Fistula Treatment without Surgery}

"Ksharsutra treatment is more effective & convenient as compared to surgery in the patients of Anal Fistula"- Indian Council of Medical Research.

Fistula in ano is a disease which is manifested as a small nodular swelling around the anal region, with occasional pus or watery discharges. It has been noticed in some of the patients that swelling & pain has subsided after the pus has discharged out however after a certain interval of time; the swelling and pain may reappear which is again followed by pus discharge and subsequent relief in the symptoms. This cycle goes on. 

However in other cases regular discharges & stickiness in the anal area may be noted. Even today when the modern surgery is at its peek, fistula in ano is still a challenge to the surgeons for its incidence of recurrence after surgery & postoperative complications like stool incontinence, pain and bleeding etc.

The Ksharsutra Therapy devised by ancient ayurvedic surgeon i.e. acharya sushruta is the only fool proof method available to cure anal fistula. The efficacy of this ksharsutra treatment is better than the most recent VAAFT or MAFT techniques advised by modern surgeons for treating this disease.

Indian Council of Medical Research has clinically evaluated this technique. Trials of Ksharsutra therapy has been clinically conducted at four centers including AIIMS New Delhi and PGI Chandigarh. The results of these trials have been released officially. Ksharsutra is more effective and convenient treatment for treating anal fistula.

Ksharsutra - A medicated thread is prepared by applying the coatings of apamarg kshara, haridra churna and many other ayurvedic herbs. All these herbs are mixed with snuhi ksheer. Ultraviolet radiation is used for sterilizing the thread. The combined effect of all these herbs exert strong debridement effect and thus induce healing by the fresh and healthy granulation tissues. The latest concept of Graded Ksharsutra™ {a research product of Sushruta Ano Rectal Institute new Delhi} is more effective than the conventional ksharsutra therapy.

Routine checkup of the patient is done with special reference to other disorders like hypertension, diabetes mellitus, tuberculosis etc. The next step involved in this treatment is identification & evaluation of the fistulous tract. Careful probing with malleable probes helps in the proper assessment of fistula tract regarding its length, depth and branching pattern.

USG or fistulogram emerges as a primary requirement in complicated cases like high anal fistula, recurrent fistula and fistula with multiple openings and branching patterns. After accurately defining the tract, it has to be ligated with Ksharsutra. The replacement of the old sutra with a new Ksharsutra is done every seventh day till there is a finale cut through.

As per observations, the length of the tract heals by 0.5 to 1 cm per week. But several factors influence healing rate of fistula tract. 

The Kshar present in Ksharsutra acts as powerful debriding agent & selectively acts on the unhealthy tissues, pus pockets etc. This process of debridement & healing starts from deeper tissues & travels towards periphery in stages.

Benefits of Ksharsutra Treatment over Surgery-

1. In Ksharsutra treatment, the postoperative complications such as fecal incontinence, recurrence of the disease, bleeding etc. are not seen. 
2. No GA (General Anesthesia) is required hence GA related complications are not seen.

4. Patient maintains his normal routine activities as usual during treatment period.

Anal Fistula Surgery Complications ?
Answer -Most common complication in Surgery for Anal Fistula are:
Infection: All surgeries carry some risk of infection. In some complex fistula; surgery might be carried out in several stages. In such cases; infection can spread to surrounding tissue.
Bowel incontinence: Fistula surgery has the potential to damage muscles of anal sphincter specially when fistula involves sphincter muscles. These muscles are responsible for controlling bowel movements. When sphincter damage occurs; the strength of muscles is compromised and there can be some loss of control of the bowels leading to leaking of feces from rectum. This is referred to as bowel or fecal incontinence.
Recurrence of Fistula Recurrence rate after surgery for anal fistula is as high as 15-20%; depending upon type of fistula and surgical procedure used to remove fistula.
Pain Anal region is very sensitive area so there can be very intense pain after surgery for anal fistula.

Question 9 - Types of Fistulas?
Answer - Fistula can be divided into subcategories which are as follows
Inter-sphincteric fistulas - These are the ones that are confined to the internal sphincter. There is also a strong possibility that these extend till the perineal skin.
Trans-sphincteric fistulas - These pass through external, internal sphincter in areas located between perianal skin and anal canal.
Supra-sphincteric fistulas - These pass upward around the external sphincter after crossing internal sphincter right above the puborectalis muscle.
Extra-sphincteric fistulas - These are the ones that are rare to find and also the most tough ones to be treated. In this type of fistula, the tract bypasses both the anal canal and sphincter, then pass from the levator ani muscle and ischiorectal fossa before exiting its way into the rectum.
Superficial fistulas - These types of fistula neither cross the internal sphincter nor the external ones. There is strong possibility that the fistula is present because of the crohns disease.

Question 10 - Is it possible to treat fistula without undergoing any sort of surgery?
Answer - Yes; Ayurveda offers treatment to the fistula with the help of herbs and its own practices.
