Thread: Fissures

  1. #1


    Can fissures cause AD?

    Any 'noxious' stimuli below the person's level of injury can cause AD; ingrown toenails, bee stings, burns, pressure sores, and fissures are among some of the more 'common' causes of AD, although bowel/bladder problems are the biggest causes.

    Dennis has been admitted to Kessler for the second time in a week. The first time, last Monday, it was thought to be an impaction, which they tried to alleviate with cleaning him out and it seemed to work ok.

    He came home yesterday and had a nasty episode of AD during a BM accident last night. It took almost 4 hours for the headache and high BP to go back to normal.

    Now his SCI Dr. thinks it could be a fissure and wants a GI Dr. to take a look at him.

    Does anyone has any experience with a fissure with a C5 or above injury level?

    All too much experience here, c5-6 incomplete. I would recommend a colo-rectal specialist.

    C5/6 incomplete, injured Aug. 2000
