|In April 2011 I had a medical operation for paraproctitis. After approximately a year I went to a doctor and he told me that I had an extrasphincteric anal fistula formed which is quite complex and he can not perform an operation because he is not sure of the results of it. I would be grateful if you could advise me whether VAAFT method can be applied for treatment of my fistula.|

|Dear Mr Ahmadov
Video-assisted anal fistula treatment (VAAFT) is a novel recently developed minimally invasive and sphincter-saving technique for treating complex fistulas.
Any good surgical techniques for treating anal fistulas are based on three main principles:
Identification of the tract
Excision of the fistula tract and
Preservation of anal sphincter function.
The VAAFT technique is a minimally invasive and safe technique which fulfil all the above criteria. The advantages of this VAAFT technique is that, it is performed as day surgery, there are no surgical wounds on the buttocks or in the perianal region, and there is complete certainty regarding the location of the internal fistula opening.
So in our opinion you should opt for this treatment.
