Abstract: Objective Evaluate clinical, functional and morphologic outcomes of lateral sphincterotomy for chronic anal fissure treatment, and correlate the findings with factors that influence in the anal continence. Method In a prospective study, female patients treated by lateral sphincterotomy for chronic anal fissure were assessed using Wexner's incontinence score and grouped according to score: group I (score = 0) and group 2 (score ≥1) and evaluated with anal manometry and anorectal 3D ultrasonography. … Show more

“…Available research focusing on LIS outcomes in female patients are few. Regadas et al [46] and Fernandes et al [47] analyzed respectively a series on 31 and 36 female patients affected by CAF hypertonic IAS, without FI or previous proctological procedure, who underwent LIS extended to the apex of the fissure; they observed, in the 52-53% of cases. The authors highlighted, with a post-operative evaluation endoanal ultrasound (EAUS), that if LIS extension was greater than 20-25% of the IAS length (corresponding to less than 1 cm), the incidence of FI was significantly higher.…”
