Endorectal Advancement Flap

An endorectal advancement flap is performed using a small flap of tissue which is created on the inside of the rectum and pulled down over the inside opening or the primary opening of the fistula tract. This technique utilizes healthy tissue to cover and seal the fistula.  This procedure is often performed on recto-vaginal fistulas.
