Symptom Control 1-Year After Circular Stapler Anopexy or Diathermy Excision for Prolapsed Haemorhoids
Background: In an international randomised controlled trial we studied how patient self-reported symptoms improved after either a stapled anopexy operation or a diathermy excision of the haemorrhoids.
Methods: The study involved 18 hospitals in Sweden, Denmark and the UK. Two hundred and seven patients were randomised. After exclusion of 27 patients, 90 in both groups were operated and followed one year. Patients provided self-reported symptoms before surgery and after 1 year. A patient diary obtained daily self-reported postoperative pain scores (VAS). Surgeons evaluated the anal anatomy before surgery and after 1 year.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Swollen veins in the lower part of the RECTUM or ANUS. Hemorrhoids can be inside the anus (internal), under the skin around the anus (external), or protruding from inside to outside of the anus. People with hemorrhoids may or may not exhibit symptoms which include bleeding, itching, and pain.
The induction of local hyperthermia by either short radio waves or high-frequency sound waves.
Sodium Tetradecyl Sulfate
An anionic surface-active agent used for its wetting properties in industry and used in medicine as an irritant and sclerosing agent for hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
Treatment of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, gastric and esophageal varices, and peptic ulcer hemorrhage by injection or infusion of chemical agents which cause localized thrombosis and eventual fibrosis and obliteration of the vessels.
Chemical agents injected into blood vessels and lymphatic sinuses to shrink or cause localized THROMBOSIS; FIBROSIS, and obliteration of the vessels. This treatment is applied in a number of conditions such as VARICOSE VEINS; HEMORRHOIDS; GASTRIC VARICES; ESOPHAGEAL VARICES; PEPTIC ULCER HEMORRHAGE.
The aim of this study is to determine the role of stapled anopexy in the treatment of haemorrhoids by comparing it to the current gold standard treatment, which is excisional haemorrhoidec...
The objective of this prospective randomised trial was to compare the short- and long-term efficacy of conventional diathermy haemorrhoidectomy versus Ligasure™ diathermy, and to assess...
Background: Local anaesthetic day-care open haemorrhoidectomy (LH) is feasible, cheap and may be the cost-effective surgical approach to third degree haemorrhoids. This prospective randomi...
This study was designed to compare the outcome of LigaSure hemorrhoidectomy and stapled hemorrhoidopexy for prolapsed hemorrhoids.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether local or general anaesthesia in stapled hemorrhoidectomy leads to a shorter operation time with a better patient comfort.
PURPOSE: Haemorrhoidal disease is one of the most common anorectal disorders. The aim of this study is to compare the results, over the last 10 years, of stapled haemorrhoidopex...
BACKGROUND: The literature indicates higher recurrence rates for stapled hemorrhoidopexy than for conventional techniques. This could be due to inappropriate patient selection. OBJECTIVE: The aim of t...
BACKGROUND: In the past decade, several new surgical tools have revived the hope for an improved technique to treat radically hemorrhoids with less postoperative pain. Among these radiofrequency (RF),...
Anal skin tags (AST) are a common finding. They are hypertrophied redundant folds of perianal skin. (1) and are found in up to a third of patients with benign anal disorders (2). In patients undergoin...
BACKGROUND: Circular stapled hemorrhoidopexy (CSH) is an effective technique for treating prolapsing hemorrhoids; but urgency and anal stenosis are common postoperative complications. The aim of this...
