Abstract:
Background: Although traditional surgery is the gold standard treatment for hemorrhoids, stapled hemorrhoidopexy (SH) is an alternative surgical technique. However, this technique has concerns of recurrence. We conducted this study to assess the clinical outcomes and complications of SH in patients visiting our institution
Methods: A prospective study was conducted on 115 patients from 2010 to 2012 who underwent SH with PPH03 kit under spinal anesthesia. Clinical outcomes assessed included the operation time, hospital stay and rate of post-operative pain.
Results: SH had lower operative procedural time (30 minutes), post- operative pain and hospital stay (1.8 days) along with minimal procedural complications and were comparable to the previous reports.
Conclusions: Stapled hemorrhoidopexy is an effective alternative to traditional surgical technique in treating 3rd and 4th degree hemorrhoids, in terms of lesser operative procedural time, post-operative pain, use of analgesics and hospital stay along with reduced procedure related complication.
