Clinical study on herbal fumigation of detumescence and pain relieving Shengji decoction in wound repair after anal fistula surgery

Objective: To study the effects of herbal fumigation of detumescence and pain relieving Shengji decoction on wound repair after anal fistula surgery.

Methods: From March 2015 to March 2017, 90 patients with low anal fistula enrolled in Health Service Center of Ngamring County were collected. All patients were randomly divided into the observation group (n=45) and the control group (n=45). In the control group, the patients were treated with conventional western medicine while patients in the observation group were given the treatment of herbal fumigation of detumescence and pain relieving Shengji decoction. The treatment effect, wound repair, incidence of adverse reaction and quality of life were analyzed and compared between those two groups.

Results: The treatment effect of the observation group (95.6%) was obviously higher than that of the control group (73.3%). The wound repair and quality of life in the observation group was better than those in the control group. The incidence of adverse reaction of the observation group (2.2%) was significantly lower than that of the control group (20%).

Conclusion: Herbal fumigation of detumescence and pain relieving Shengji decoction can effectively promote the wound repair after anal fistula surgery, reduce the incidence of adverse reaction and improve the quality of life, thus worth clinical application.
