About Anal Fissure

 

Anal fissure is a tear in the lining of the lower rectum (anal canal) that causes pain during bowel movements. It is associated with constipation (due to the passage of bulky and hard stools), frequent bowel movement and diarrhoea, trauma in the anal area, diet poor in fibres and high in fat and fried foods, and in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. One cause of fissures is increased tension (called resting pressure) and spasm in the internal anal sphincter. Current treatments are not sufficient enough to give long-lasting pain relief and promote healing.
