anal fissure: laser surgery
The accuracy of the operation can be increased by using magnifying glasses that make even the smallest details visible during the procedure. According to our observations, the use of a diode laser instead of an electroscalpel also ensures a better end result, as wound healing begins earlier and the scars become smooth and elastic.
After the operation
The wound is not sutured to avoid additional pain, infection and scar tissue. The external wound may appear quite large to the patient, but the resulting discharge of secretion is crucial for healing. After the bowel movement, the wound is cleaned only with running water under the shower, through a sitting bath or on the way simply with a damp toilet paper or baby cloth.
After the operation there is an inability to work for about two weeks. Normally the healing starts on the 10th postoperative day. Now the secretion of wound fluid and wound pain also decrease. Towards the end of the third week, the restrictions are usually hardly still in place. Only in a few individual cases is the scar completely healed after one year.
