Repair of anal stricture and mucosal ectropion by simple flap procedures

  • Published:
Diseases of the Colon & Rectum

Abstract

A technique is described that has proven most effective in correction of postoperative anal stenosis. A modification of this technique also has proven effective in the treatment of symptomatic anal mucosal ectropion—a condition marked by pruritus and perianal soilage from mucosal weeping, usually associated with the Whitehead hemorrhoidectomy. The design of the flap allows primary closure of the donor site and tension-free flap inset with a robust flap blood supply.
