Abstract

Deep post anal space abscesses and horse shoe fistulae have represented a challenging problem to both patient and surgeon over the years. That concern remains true to this day. The potential morbidity of post- operative fecal incontinence and recurrent disease plague the decision making for today’s surgeon as he/she considers several management options. Over time, newer sphincter sparing surgical techniques have been advocated for the management of this problem. This article reviews the current available literature on the surgical management of this ailment specifically highlighting technique, potential complications and disease recurrence.
