An evidence-based treatment algorithm for anal fissure
Techniques in Coloproctology , Volume 10 - Issue 3 p. 177- 180
Guidelines for the treatment of anal fissure have been published in the USA and UK but differ. Many centers follow guidelines based on local experience. In December 2005, we met with the aim of developing an evidence-based treatment algorithm for anal fissure, applicable to both primary and secondary care. This algorithm may rationalize the treatment of anal fissure in primary and secondary care settings.
