Keywords: rectal fistula, surgical correction of anal fistula, mini-invasive technologies, combined methods of surgical treatment.


Summary. The use of mini-invasive technologies for the treatment of rectal fistula prevents many postoperative complications. Complete excision of the rectal fistula is not the only important result of treatment. Ensuring a high quality of life for patients is also very important. The proposed methods of surgical correction are a significant addition to the list of existing operations.

Objective. To compare and analyze the results of the treatment patients with anal fistula by using standard techniques, the modified method LIFT and excision anal fistula with biowelding.

Materials and methods. A retro- and prospective study of the surgical treatment of 90 patients with uncomplicated transsphincteric anal fistula using different techniques from September 2018 to February 2020 was conducted.

Results. The introduction of these methods has shown a decrease in the number of relapses. This was achieved by combining complete excision of the fistula tract and minimal damage to the sphincter complex.

Conclusion. The use of combined methods of surgical treatment of rectal fistula has significant advantages over standard techniques.
