- Treatment of fistulas show low success rates
- Debridement of the fistula is a critical factor
- There are sparse options available for surgeons that are specifically designed for the unique challenges of debriding fistulas
Our solution: Fisturapsers – minimal invasive
Treatments and Limitations
Treatment options for fistulas are surgical procedures, e.g., fistulectomy, or minimally invasive techniques, e.g., seton, debridement. Overall, the success rate of treatment is disappointingly low.
One reason for the difficulties of closure is that bacteria settle in the mucosal lining. Therefore, debridement of this lining is essential. There are sparse options available for surgeons that are specifically designed for the unique challenges of debriding fistulas and removing this lining.
Fisturasper: How it works
The fistula rasp contains several fine discs arranged parallel to each other and spaced apart, the edges of which are sharp and therefore provide a grating effect. Particularly the soft tissue of the fistula lining is scaled off by the edges of this fistula and is trapped in the spaces between the parallel discs, resulting in the removal of the fistula tissue. This fistula lining can then be easily scraped off on a dry pad and the rasp process may be repeated.
The benefit of cleaning the fistula tract and removing thin lining is that less bacteria remain in the fistula tract, significantly improving the healing process.
