Ayurveda : There seems to be a technique called 'Kshara Sootra' (a Medicated thread) available in ayurveda. Can anyone provide details?
- from a cursory inspection of this (highly misleadingly named) website link, this seems to be a seton. Markjohndaley (talk) 02:30, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
- NEW TREATMENT -
- Most effective, minimally invasive treatment available is through the use of the Anal Fistula Plug (AFP), developed by Cook Medical Inc. The AFP is a biodegradable collagen plug that acts as a bioscaffold to facilitate the regeneration of tissue growth within the fistula tract. Once surgically inserted and secured properly, studies have shown this new treatment to yield an 87% success rate. The AFP has no risk of incontinence and does not require the cutting of the sphincter muscle. It is the perfect treatment for anyone who is living with a ceton inserted, and/or has a deep anal fistula that would otherwise require cutting muscle and risking incontinence. For more information visit www.cooksurgical.com or contact an AFP Specialist directly - Omar.Sharif@Cookmedical.com
This looks like advertising. --DanielCD 21:18, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
This needs to be worded in an encyclopedic manner and to be referenced by research journals, not webites or a single organization. This information may be important, so don't make it crummy by referring to a certain person/organization/entity that provides the procedure, as that looks like advertising. Material should be cited and reference material listed in its own section below the main article body. --DanielCD 22:21, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
- I'm also highly sceptical of "Studies Indicate" If we are using science we should be quoting how these outcomes compare and which head to head trial shows morbidity/ hard endpoint benefit before any differential benefit claims are made on an encyclopedic site.Markjohndaley (talk) 02:36, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
- I'm not sure this is the case now. Markjohndaley (talk) 02:39, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
It seems so. Just seen it mentioned on a BBC TV programme called Versaille which is a drama documentary about Louis XIV. Programme broadcast 20:00-21:00 on 7/5/2011. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:56, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
