Abstract: Perianal fistula, usually has a criptoglandular etiology, developing from a perianal abscess and communicating the anal mucosa with the perianal skin. The aim of this paper is to study retrospectively 241 cases of perianal fistula (172 men and 69 women; 2,5:1) aging from 7 and 80 years old (average: 37,4 years), operated on at the Hospital da Clínicas - UFMG, from 1977 to 1996. The surgical techniques and post-operative outcome have been analysed. Perianal abscesses with spontaneous drainage were the predomina… Show more

“…The early postsurgical complication rates of bleeding and infection were in accordance with those reported in large series [7,11–13], being five (8%) for non‐CD and three (18%) for CD patients. The fistula recurred or persisted in nearly half (47%) of our non‐CD patients, which is higher than reported in large series with, for example, an overall recurrence rate ranging between 10 and 33% [13]. Recurrence is higher (41–44%) among patients with complex fistulae [9,13], which is very similar to the present study.…”

Recurrence is higher (41–44%) among patients with complex fistulae [9,13], which is very similar to the present study. The rate of recurrence or persistence was high (40%) among CD patients, a figure that concurs with other large case series in the literature which report a range of 40–48% [7,11,14].…”

“…Perianal fistula usually have a criptoglandular aetiology and develop from perianal gland infection. Infection of anal glands is reported to occur in about 90% of the cases [ 1 ]. Sepsis then spreads in the inter-sphincteric plane and sometimes extends into other tracts as described by Parks, forming inter-sphincteric, trans-sphincteric, extra-sphincteric and supra-sphincteric fistula tracts [ 2 ].…”

“…Sepsis then spreads in the inter-sphincteric plane and sometimes extends into other tracts as described by Parks, forming inter-sphincteric, trans-sphincteric, extra-sphincteric and supra-sphincteric fistula tracts [ 2 ]. The majority of the fistula tracts (90–95%) are simple, which are characterized by an easily identifiable fistula tract [ 1 ]. On the contrary, complex fistulae can have multiple extensions and are occasionally associated with pararectal cavities.…”
