Abstract

Treatment of high and complex anal fistulas is difficult and associated with a high risk of recurrence or postoperative sphincter dysfunction. The search for new solutions is aimed at improving treatment results. Negative Pressure Therapy (NPT) is now more widely used in surgery with good effect, especially in the case of difficult to heal profusely discharging wounds and in the case of wounds characterised by difficult, for anatomical reasons, outflow of purulent contents. Some patients with high and complex anal fistulas meet the eligibility criteria for using negative pressure dressing, in addition, the use of negative pressure dressings is not associated with therapy-related risk of incontinence worsening. The authors present their own observations from the treatment of 6 patients with high complex anal fistulas undergoing NPT.
