Summary

Purpose: This randomized study assesses the effects of antibiotics on the formation of fistulae after drainage of anorectal abscesses.

Methods: Patients who underwent abscess drainage in 3 major colorectal units between September 2005 and January 2008 were included. Previous anorectal surgery history, immunecompromised states, pregnancy, inflammatory bowel disease, antibiotic usage prior to surgery and the presence of an anal fistulae at the time of surgery were the exclusion criteria. Patients were randomized and given either placebo or amoxicillin-clavulanic acid combination treatment for 10 days. Patients were followed one year for perianal fistulae formation.

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).
