Anal fistula is a condition where a nodular swelling appears in area surrounding the anal opening. Intermittent pus discharged is noticed from this nodular swelling. An anal abscess is one of the most common causes for this condition.

  1. It is curable through Ayurveda only: Till date many treatment options are tried to cure Anal Fistula which include Anal Fistula Surgery/ Glu technique/ cutting seton/ Colostomy/ Fistula plug/ VAAFT and many more.But all of these treatment methods have pretty high recurrence rate of about 20-25 %. However with Kshar Sutra treatment for Anal Fistula; chances of recurrence are negligible.Other complications generally seen in surgery like bleeding, incontinence (inability to hold stool); are not seen with Kshar Sutra Treatment. Clinical trials conducted by Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR); at AIIMS New Delhi and PGI Chandigarh in 1992 have proved that Ksharsutra treatment is more convenient and more effective than Surgery in the patients of Anal Fistula.
  2. Medication can only provide temporary relief: Antibiotics and painkiller might give temporary relief from the symptoms. But after some time there will be again pus formation and associated swelling & pain in area surrounding anal opening.
  3. Anal fistulas can recur after surgical treatment: As discussed above all the treatment options tried by modern medicine (including most recent treatment VAAFT) have high incidence of recurrence (about 20- 25%) Whereas there are negligible chances of recurrence after Ksharsutra Treatment for Anal Fistula. .
  4. Anal fistulas treated by Graded Ksharsutra do not recur: Ayurvedic treatment for anal fistulas is known as Kshar sutra therapy. This involves the use of medicated thread being ligated in Fistula Tract. The medicines present in this thread act as a strong debriding agent and induces healing of Fistula tract. In few weekly sittings of Ksharsutra change Fistula gets healed completely and it do not recur. Patient maintains his normal routine life during treatment period.
