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.
Hemorrhoids are a frequent disease with the need of surgical intervention in 10-20% of the patients. The stapled hemorrhoidectomy according to Longo under general anesthesia (or spinal) is considered standard of care . Cohort studies show that a pudendal bloc with local anesthesia is safe and efficient [2-4]. The majority of procedures are actually performed in private clinics or in an ambulatory setting underlining the importance of economic issues such as procedure time (anesthesia and operation time) and hospital stay.
We hypothesize that stapled hemorrhoidectomy under local anaesthesia shortens anaesthesia time and hospital stay and reduces costs with no disadvantages regarding pain, satisfaction and complication rate.

Clinical guidance on the choice of anesthetic modality vis-à-vis the risk of perioperative venous thromboembolism (VTE) is largely lacking because of a paucity of recent evidence. A comparative effec...
Combination of general anesthesia and peripheral nerve block with low-dose ropivacaine reduces postoperative pain for several days after outpatient arthroscopy: A randomized controlled clinical trial.
Effective methods for postoperative pain relief are an important concern in outpatient surgery. For arthroscopies we combine a single-shot peripheral nerve block using low-volume, low-concentration ro...
Autogenous fistulas and in particular radiocephalic fistulas are recommended as the first vascular access for hemodialysis. Unfortunately, the rates of early failure and non-maturation are very high. ...

Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
A local anesthetic of the amide type now generally used for surface anesthesia. It is one of the most potent and toxic of the long-acting local anesthetics and its parenteral use is restricted to spinal anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1006)
A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).
The period of emergence from general anesthesia, where different elements of consciousness return at different rates.
A barbiturate that is administered intravenously for the production of complete anesthesia of short duration, for the induction of general anesthesia, or for inducing a hypnotic state. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p919)
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
