An anal fistula is a narrow channel that can form close to the anus between the end of the rectum / anal canal and the skin. When passing the stools, an anal fistula can cause bleeding and discharge, which can be painful. An anal fistula can grow to drain a perianal abscess after surgery. A big breakthrough treatment choice for complex fistulas is MAFT (VAAFT).VAAFT (The Video-assisted Anal Fistula Treatment) or MAFT (Minimally Invasive Fistula Treatment) are alternatively used terms.
