Comparing Anugel With Gelatine Sponges for Pain Management After Hemoroidectomy

2019-08-18 20:09:28 | BioPortfolio


Post-operational pain is the most common problem relating to haemorrhoidectomy. This study aims to evaluate the postoperative effects of Anugel a hydrogel impregnated multi component sponge vs gelatine sponge comparatively.


The patients were placed in the lithotomy position. Haemorrhoids (piles) were later located through exploration. The piles were dissected using ligasure. After completing the dissection, bleeding was controlled and either Anugel or the gelatine sponge (SpongostanTM) is inserted in to the rectum as determined by patient allocation.

The patients were monitored post operation and 5 days following the surgery. Pain was measured using the VAS scale and use of pain medication was monitored.
