PURPOSE: : We aimed to analyze the feasibility and efficacy of a new transperineal access to treat anorectal sepsis (fistulae and abscesses) under endoanal ultrasonography guidance.
METHODS: : Twenty-five patients (80% Crohn disease) were included retrospectively. Twenty-one patients had fistulae (perianal, urethroanal, and anovaginal) treated by injection of heterologous fibrin glue and cyanoacrylate. Four patients with abscesses were treated by irrigation-injection of normal saline solution and an aminoglycoside antibiotic.
RESULTS: : Twenty-five patients underwent 32 treatment sessions. At 4 weeks' evaluation, 19 patients (90.5%) with anal fistulae ultimately achieved a 4-week short-term success. Of these, 5 patients (26%) showed resolution of symptoms and persistent occlusion of the fistula track at long-term follow-up (>6 mo). At 4-week follow-up, the treatment of abscesses was successful in 3 of 4 cases. However, a relapse was observed in 2 cases after a mean period of 3 months. No serious adverse events were observed.
CONCLUSIONS: : Endoanal ultrasonography-assisted percutaneous transperineal injection represents a sphincter-sparing alternative to the surgical route, with interesting outcomes and excellent tolerability for the treatment of anorectal sepsis.
