Effectiveness of silver nitrate solution in treatment of anal fistula is is aimed to be investigated.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Effectiveness of Silver Nitrate Solution in the Treatment of Anal Fistula: A Novel Strategy for Managing Anal Fistula|
- Number of anal fistula patients treated with silver nitrate solution. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The primary end point in the study was to assess the efficacy of the silver nitrate in the treatment of anal fistula. The number of anal fistula patients who are treated with silver nitrate solution will be calculated. The role of silver nitrate solution in anal fistula treatment will be investigated
- Therapeutic factors [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The secondary end point was to identify the clinical and therapeutic factors that significantly affect the primary endpoint.
|Study Start Date:||August 2013|

|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Irrigation of fistula tract with 1% silver nitrate solution for all patients who accepts the study and signed the written informed consent form.
The anal fistula is a granulation tissue-lined tract, we thought of a way to ablate this granulation tissue using a chemical agent, which would eventually induce healing with fibrosis and closure of the tract without any surgical intervention. Aiming to reduce the surgery related complications; we investigated the effectiveness of silver nitrate solution as a chemical agent in the treatment of anal fistula.
