  Purpose

This study comprises a prospective study of 40 patients with transphincteric anal fistula. The patients were classified into two groups: Group I: Fistulectomy, closure of internal sphincter and rectal advancement flap includes mucosa, submucosa, and circular muscle layer sutured 1cm below the level of internal opening. Group II: The same as group one but the flap includes only mucosa and submucosa.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: partial rectal wall advancement flap
The flap comprised mucosa, submucosa and circular muscle fibers. It is raised from the dentate line and mobilized 4-6 cm cephaled and advanced to the new dendentate line (1 cm below the dentate line) and sutured with absorbable sutures (vicryl; ethicone 3/0). Also the defect is closed with absorbable sutures.
