• Anal Fissure Complications

  • Chronic fissure - Anal fissure that fails to heal within six weeks is considered chronic. Each time you pass stool, the already traumatised anal canal tissue is damaged furthermore which prevents healing the fissure. Chronic fissure produces scar tissue that hampers normal bowel evacuation.
  • Recurrence - Once you've experienced an anal fissure, you are prone to having another one.
