Multicentrique Prospective Evaluation of Radiofrequency Surgical Treatment of Homorrhoidal Disease

2020-01-17 10:48:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Hemorrhoids consist of a tissue rich in blood vessels and are present in all individuals inside the anus. Hemorrhoidal disease (HD) is when hemorrhoids become troublesome and cause symptoms such as pain, bleeding, prolapse or seepage.

The first steps in the treatment of HD involve either drugs or instrumental gestures (sclerosis, ligation). In the event of failure or of a disease that is significant from the outset, it is possible to envisage a surgical treatment.

The use of a radiofrequency is a new technique, already used frequently by vascular surgeons in the treatment of varicose veins of the lower limbs. This technique has been developed for radiofrequency destruction of hemorrhoidal vascular tissue.

In France, no studies have been carried out to evaluate this new technique.

Description

Hemorrhoids consist of a tissue rich in blood vessels and are present in all individuals inside the anus (internal hemorrhoids). Hemorrhoidal disease (HD) is when hemorrhoids become troublesome and cause symptoms such as pain, bleeding, prolapse or seepage.

The first steps in the treatment of HD involve either drugs or instrumental gestures (sclerosis, ligation). In the event of failure or of a disease that is significant from the outset, it is possible to envisage a surgical treatment.

The use of a radiofrequency current (Rafaelo technique) in the treatment of hemorrhoidal disease is a new technique, already used frequently by vascular surgeons in the treatment of varicose veins of the lower limbs. This technique has been developed for radiofrequency destruction of hemorrhoidal vascular tissue.

Although radiofrequency destruction of hemorrhoidal vascular tissue is already used in other European countries such as Poland, Germany, Belgium and Great Britain, there are very few studies on this minimally invasive surgical technique. This is particularly the case in France where no studies have been carried out to evaluate this new technique.

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 surgical removal of HEMORRHOIDS.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.

Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.
