Anal fissure IIIa

Anal fissure IIIa
22 rating(s) (3.77 ø)

The exact causal cascade of the development of an anal fissure is not completely cleared yet. Probably, it is a complex process with the following influencial factors (amongst others):

  • Reduced perfusion of the anal skin.
  • Increased sphincter tonus
  • Stool consistency (constipation, diarrhea)

Hemorrhoids, lifestyle ("sedentary activity"), and sexual habits (anal sex) are additional risk factors.

Chronic diarrhea, such as in malabsorption syndrome or lactose intolerance, can promote anal fissures.
