Core Tip Fistula and anorectal abscess are common, and 40% of such abscesses result in fistulas. Posto?perative fecal incontinence (FI) is frequent. It has been reported that rectal distensibility and thresholds for sensations decrease after hemorrhoidopexy, and that the perception of rectal distension is not always reduced in FI. In our patients with FI after fistulotomy (FIAF), anal sphincter function and rectal sensitivity are preserved, but rectal tone and compliance are impaired. The results suggest that FIAF is not due to alterations in rectal sensitivity and that the rectum is more involved than the anal sphincters in the genesis of FIAF.
