Question: Has anyone had a procedure called an endorectal advancement flap? After 3 failed operations to cure an anal fistula, my doctor has referred me to another specialist to carry out a procedure called an endorectal advancement flap. With a little research it sounds like the success rate is not very high and details of the operation are quite daunting to say the least. Has anyone ever went through this operation and what are your thoughts? There is an alternative procedure called an anal fistula plug which sounds not so bad but again I would love to hear from anyone who has went through this operation. Please help!!

Answer: I believe this is in the wrong category.
