Perineal Fistula

Fistulas Perineal


Presentation

  • This report outlines the clinical presentation of another case and a unique surgical approach to its management, as well as a review of the English literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a simple endoscopic technique to manage this complicated problem. We report on a 34-year-old man with a prostato-perineal fistula after multiple surgeries for imperforate anus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The English literature is reviewed and anatomical findings, embryology, presenting signs and symptoms, and treatment are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Two patients who presented with a unique anorectal malformation are described. They had what we have named rectourinary perineal fistula.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Being an extremely rare presentation, it is being presented with review of relevant literature. Keywords: Anorectal malformation, jejunal atresia, low anorectal malformation How to cite this article: Sunil K, Verma AK, Pandey A, Gupta A.[jcnonweb.com]
Perineal Pain
  • On day 4 after admission, however, fever and perineal pain recurred, and the patient developed signs of septicaemia. Physical examination revealed a penile oedema.[nature.com]
Severe Pain
  • Only one female (1.6%) with an active fistula and abscess in the vulva complained of severe pain. The mean score of the degree of pain was 0.5 0.71.[e-ultrasonography.org]
Wound Infection
Tachycardia
  • Twelve months after the perineal hernia operation, but only 6 weeks into chemotherapy, the patient developed signs of sepsis with a high temperature, tachycardia, and hypotension and complained of pain in the right buttock.[dovepress.com]
Fussiness
  • Authors: Erica Wang, MD, and Margaret Trost, MD Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, California Kimberley Monks, BS Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California A 1-month-old boy presented with a 1-day history of fussiness[consultant360.com]

Workup

  • Hence, a perineal fistula, which is a low type of anomaly, was missed in the initial workup, as meconium could not reach up to the distal most part of obstruction. This led to the erroneous diagnosis of high ARM.[jcnonweb.com]

Treatment

  • BACKGROUND: Functional outcomes after treatment of low anorectal anomalies remain controversial.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: In this study, fibrin glue had moderate success in the definitive treatment of perineal fistulas. However, 33 percent of the patients in whom fibrin glue was the only treatment used were able to avoid more extensive surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Complete excision of the sinus tract and obliteration of dead space have been stressed as important aspects of treatment. A patient is described in whom the perineal sinus persisted despite three surgical attempts at cure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this study, fibrin glue had moderate success in the definitive treatment of perineal fistulas. However, 33 percent of the patients in whom fibrin glue was the only treatment used were able to avoid more extensive surgery.[insights.ovid.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis for return of function is excellent, but intermittent constipation remains a residual problem in most cases. It is treated prophylactically.[gpnotebook.co.uk]
  • In fact, we observed that the higher the malformation, the poorer the prognosis for bowel control, but the better the prognosis for constipation, or the other way around, the lower and more benign the malformation, the highest chances of bowel control[abdominalkey.com]
  • Pain medications, stool softeners and E-collar are needed during the recovery WHAT IS THE PROGNOSIS FOR PERINEAL FISTULAS? There is not a cure for perineal fistulas as mentioned above and lifelong medical therapy is needed.[drtomasinfernuso.com]
  • [ edit ] Colostomy is recommended by most surgeons, and has a good prognosis, with 90% of patients regaining normal bowel control. [4] Since the rectal opening and anal orifice in a vestibular fistula tend to be short and narrow, a colostomy is usually[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Prognosis The location and severity of the fistula play a major role in determining treatment. A fistula is a sign of serious inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and without proper care, can lead to serious complications.[verywell.com]

Etiology

  • These factors along with response to conservative management favors an acquired etiology.[jiaps.com]
  • ETIOLOGY Rectovaginal fistulas may be acquired or congenital.[glowm.com]
  • Keywords : Ultrasonography ; Perineum ; Crohn disease ; Pediatrics Introduction Crohn disease (CD) is a chronic, inflammatory bowel disease of unknown etiology.[e-ultrasonography.org]
  • Anal tags should be removed or a biopsy should be obtained to confirm the etiology. Anoscopy may enable the physician to identify the cause or find other lesions.[aafp.org]

  • […] neither a colostomy nor a PSARP and instead opt for a simple dilatation of the orifice to allow stool to pass and the bowel to decompress. [5] It has been suggested that only experienced surgeons should perform repair without an initial colostomy. [1] Epidemiology[en.wikipedia.org]

  • The most commonly accepted pathophysiology is the cryptoglandular hypothesis, which posits that obstruction of the deep submucosal glands results in infection and abscess formation in the intersphincteric space, which consequently drains inferiorly between[radiopaedia.org]

Prevention

  • Post-operative daily cleaning of the affected region is very important to prevent infection and promote healing of the compromised anus. Antiseptic solution and triple antibiotic cream should be applied daily and the fecal matter removed.[drtomasinfernuso.com]

  • An adequate blood supply and a tension free anastomosis or one under minimal tension to help prevent prolapse will prevent complications such as stricture and dehiscence. Once adequately mobilized the rectum is relocated posteriorly.[pedsurglibrary.com]
  • Seeing a gastroenterologist on a regular basis and taking medication as prescribed is vital to the management and prevention of IBD complications. Thanks for your feedback![verywell.com]
  • You may need to wear a gauze pad or minipad to prevent the drainage from soiling your clothes. Bowel movements will not affect healing. Will an abscess or fistula recur? If proper healing occurs, the problem usually will not return.[colonrectal.org]
