Artery ligation versus rubber band ligation for management of second and third degree haemorrhoids in rural Rajasthan

Author(s): Dr. Surendra Kumar Samar, Dr. Anurag Pateriya and Dr. Mathura Prasad Agrawal
Abstract: Haemorrhoids have been a commonplace surgical problem since ancient times and recent advances have entailed a multitude of methodologies that can be adopted for its management. The present study was designed to ascertain if two modalities of artery ligation and band ligation are comparatively equal or not in managing symptomatic grade II and III haemorrhoids in a rural populace in Rajasthan. The study comprised of 60 subjects who were randomly divided in two groups based on the procedure to be performed. The subjects were explained the study and its objective. The observations reported that there were more relapses in band ligation as compared to artery ligation. This led to the conclusion that despite its painful and traumatic methodology, haemorrhoid artery ligation still provides a better outcome.
