Clinical trials have reported that flap repair (FR) can treat anal fistula (AF) effectively. However, no study systematically investigated its efficacy and safety for patients with AF. This study will systematically assess its efficacy and safety of AF.
This article was published in the following journal.
Treatment of complex anal fistula (CAF) is challenging as it mandates a fine balance between the need to completely eradicate the pathology of the fistula tract and to preserve anal continence. To thi...
Several sphincter saving techniques have been described for complex anal fistula (CAF) with variable outcomes. The present trial aimed to compare two techniques for CAF; the drained mucosal flap techn...
Microsurgery is a treatment option for dural arteriovenous fistula (DAF), but its efficacy is still unclear. This study aims to assess the efficacy and safety of microsurgery for the treatment of pati...
The use of rectal advancement flaps to treat f high anal fistulae is well recognised and associated both cure and preservation of anal continence [1, 2]. The creation of the advancement flap may compr...
The case of a 34 year old lady with a rectovaginal fistula following instrumental vaginal delivery is described in this video. On examination, there was a 2 cm diameter defect just above the anal sphi...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the Surgisis anal fistula plug is just as effective in healing anal fistulas as compared to the advancement flap procedure.
Anal fistulae are a difficult problem to treat. The optimal treatment for fistula involving the anal sphincter is unclear. Two standardly used methods of treatment are the ligation of in...
Anal fistula treatment is associated with increasing risk of anal incontinence until 40% of cases. New and alternative treatments (glue, advancement flap, plug…) decrease this risk, but ...
Patients with high trans-sphincteric anal fistula will be randomized to one of two equal group: group 1 will have drainage seton with mucosal advancement flap and group 2 will undergo exte...
This study comprises a prospective study of 40 patients with transphincteric anal fistula. The patients were classified into two groups: Group I: Fistulectomy, closure of internal sphincte...
Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
An abnormal anatomical passage that connects the VAGINA to other organs, such as the bladder (VESICOVAGINAL FISTULA) or the rectum (RECTOVAGINAL FISTULA).
A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
Clinical trials are a set of procedures in medical research conducted to allow safety (or more specifically, information about adverse drug reactions and adverse effects of other treatments) and efficacy data to be collected for health interventions (e.g...
