Signs and symptoms of fissures include –
Fissures can occur at any age. However they are more common in middle-aged people and infants. Common causes of anal fissure include:
Less common causes of anal fissure include:
An anal fissure often heals by itself within a few weeks if you increase your fiber and fluid intake. Soaking the anal region in warm water for 10-20 minutes several times a day, can help promote healing. If symptoms persist, you will require further treatment:

Surgical Treatment –
For chronic fissures (those which last more than 8 weeks), surgery is most effective. The surgery performed for treating anal fissure is called Lateral Internal Sphincterotomy (LIS). In LIS, a small portion of the anal sphincter muscle is cut to reduce spasm and pain, and promote healing.
Complications of anal fissure can include:
Some complications after fissure surgery include bleeding, lack of voluntary control on stool and gas, infection or abscess formation near the wound, and development of anal fistula (very rare).
Laser Treatment is the most advanced treatment for Piles, Fissure, Fistula and Varicose Veins. It is a modern day care and completely painless procedure which results in faster recovery, minimal blood loss, high success rates and low recurrence rates.
The risks in surgery include bleeding, lack of control over bowel or gas, infection or abscess formation near the wound, and development of anal fistula in rare cases.
There is rapid recovery of fissure after surgery. It is usually possible to return to your normal routine within 1-2 weeks. A full recovery of anus may take around 6 weeks.
Laser Treatments for Piles, Fissure and Fistula are USFDA approved procedures and have success rates in excess of 95% of the cases. The chances of recurrence are 2-3% and depend largely on following dietary precautions post surgery.
