Ksharsutra is a popular treatment modality in India for the management of fistula-in-ano. It works by the action of excision, scraping, draining, penetrating, debridement, and sclerosing as well as healing simultaneously without a surgical excision. The conventional method to insert a ksharsutra by using a metallic probe through an external opening may cause pain and discomfort to the patients. In some cases, this intervention is not possible without general anaesthesia. The ksharsutra may be inserted through an external opening by using an infant feeding tube (no. 5 or 6) without causing pain as a day care procedure.
