Write in front:
In our lives, anorectal disease is a disease with a very high attack rate. Its appearance will endanger people's health and reduce the quality of life. Therefore, we must pay more attention to the common sense of this disease in our lives. Many people have some misunderstandings about anorectal diseases, which can easily cause adverse consequences. Let’s take a look at some of these misunderstandings.
Misconception 1: All anorectal diseases are called hemorrhoids
In the anorectal clinic, I often encounter a type of patient and ask him where he is uncomfortable. The patient opens his mouth and says he has hemorrhoids. By asking the medical history, it is not as simple as hemorrhoids. Patients often complain: stools are bloody, painful, and thin. , Difficult to discharge, etc., so today I will look at hemorrhoids.
Through specialist examinations, it was found that many of the hemorrhoids mentioned by patients were not hemorrhoids, but other diseases of the anorectal department. Such as: anal fissure, perianal abscess, anal fistula, perianal itching, rectal polyps, rectal cancer, etc.
So here I want to explain to everyone: Hemorrhoids are not the general term and synonymous with all diseases in the anorectal department, nor are all the uncomfortable feelings in the anus caused by hemorrhoids. Among the anorectal diseases, the incidence of hemorrhoids is the highest. Coupled with the misleading of "ten people and nine hemorrhoids", people have a wrong understanding. Sometimes because of this misunderstanding, patients despise other diseases of the anorectal department, and because of the location of the disease, people rarely go to the hospital.
Misunderstandings and wrong treatments have resulted in delays in diagnosis and treatment for many patients with anorectal diseases. The more painful ones, the longer the duration of the disease, and the heavier burden; the more serious ones, the malignant tumors such as rectal cancer and anal cancer. Tube cancer is mistaken for hemorrhoids, which delays the timing of treatment, reduces the quality of life and shortens life.
Therefore, I want to say to everyone here: Pay attention to the early diagnosis and treatment of anorectal diseases. Don't take it for granted, let alone avoid going to the hospital because you are shy. Because not all anorectal diseases are called hemorrhoids.
Misconception 2: Perianal abscess, just use some anti-inflammatory drugs
If you have a perianal abscess, but you blindly feel lucky, because you are afraid of hospitalization, trouble and other factors, and delay the early surgical treatment, the infection is likely to transfer to the surrounding space and form a large abscess. The pus can be removed from the skin. Spread to the ischial rectal fossa, from the affected side through the interstitial space to the opposite side, and enter the anus through the internal and external sphincter muscles, penetrate the levator anus muscle upwards and enter the pelvic cavity to form peritonitis, or to adjacent tissues and organs such as rectum, bladder, vagina Erosion, ulceration and puncture of the urethra, forming various types of complex anal fistulas.
Misconception 3: The more frequent dressing changes after surgery, the better
Dressing changes after anorectal diseases play a very important role in wound healing. Some patients believe that the more dressing changes, the cleaner the disinfection and the faster the recovery.
In fact, repeated abrasion of the wound with a cotton ball can damage the new granulation tissue and climbing epithelial tissue, but it will prolong the wound healing time. However, if the number of dressing changes is too small or if the dressing is not changed after the operation, the wound is prone to pseudo-healing, which requires another operation. Therefore, the patient should change the dressing appropriately, once a day. If there is too much postoperative secretion or excessive pus drainage after the excision of the paraanal abscess, the dressing can be changed twice a day, and the specific conditions should be carried out according to the guidance and recommendations of professional doctors.
Dressing change after anorectal surgery is very important. Anorectal surgery only accounts for half of the healing process of anorectal diseases, and postoperative dressing changes are the other half. This is especially true for patients with perianal abscesses and anal fistulas. They do not pay attention to changing dressings after surgery and avoid changing dressings if they are afraid of pain. It is very easy to cause incomplete drainage, false healing and recurrence. This is the biggest difference from other surgical diseases.
Misconception 4: Minimally invasive surgery is the best
Some patients like to ask if it is minimally invasive surgery. This is affected by bad publicity by some people. Some patients think that minimally invasive surgery is the best. It is true that minimally invasive surgery has faster recovery and less damage than traditional surgery. It has advantages such as good effect and short hospital stay. It has been developed relatively widely in recent years and is widely used in anorectal diseases such as mixed hemorrhoids and hemorrhagic internal hemorrhoids. However, in some diseases such as perianal abscesses, complex anal fistulas or necrotizing fasciitis, some patients are not suitable for minimally invasive surgery. Preserving the normal function of the anus is the first priority, but blindly pursuing small incisions and small incisions. Injury may lead to incomplete surgery or poor drainage after surgery, resulting in poor postoperative recovery or even recurrence of the disease. The correct approach is to go to a regular specialist hospital to take a reasonable treatment method according to your own condition.
