Anal Fistula Plug

Restore a quality of life that was once unattainable.Fistula plug

Anal fistula, or fistula-in-ano, is an abnormal connection between the epithelialised surface of the anal canal and (usually) the perianal skin.

Patients suffering from anal or rectovaginal fistulas experience painful and embarrassing symptoms that completely alter their quality of life. Many do not come forward with their condition and are unaware there is a simple solution.

The Biodesign™ (Surgisis®) Fistula Plug is available with or without an end button for simple placement and suturing. Biodesign communicates with the patient’s body, signaling surrounding cells to grow across the scaffold.

The following may be symptoms or signs of an anal fistula:

  • Recurrent anal abscesses
  • Pain and swelling around the anus
  • Pain with bowel movements
  • Bleeding
  • Bloody or foul-smelling drainage (pus) from an opening around the anus. The pain may decrease after the fistula drains.
  • Irritation of the skin around the anus due to persistent drainage
  • Fever, chills, and a general feeling of fatigue. (However, these may be symptoms of many conditions.)

The result is fully remodeled, vascularized tissue and complete fistula closure without muscle damage that can lead to incontinence. Patients can return to normal life, free from discomfort and drainage.
