    Methods: Between February 2014 and September 2015, 71 patients with high perianal fistula were managed by skin sparing fistulectomy and special sutures for primary repair of anal sphincters. The clinical outcome was assessed in terms of time for healing, continence and recurrence for followup period (ranged from 4 to 24 months).

Complications included urine retention 9 patients (12.7 %), superficial wound infection 29 patients (40.9 %), and transient incontinence 33 patients (46.5 %) for flatus for period ranged from 2 to 3 weeks. No deep infection, no permanent incontinence were recorded. Recurrence was in one patient (1.4 %).
