MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND TREATMENTS

HAEMORRHOIDS

Haemorrhoids should be considered as an hypertrophy of the normal cushions (submucosa and vascular tissue) lying in the upper part of the anal canal.

Frequent disease with size increase for several reasons (pregnancy, constipation and straining, family history, prostate adenoma, food as spices and alcohol).

Common symptoms are bleeding during a bowel movement, pain, itching, prolapse or swelling.

An investigation with Anoscopy is necessary to stage the haemorrhoids and rule out other causes (such as anal cancer).

Identified stages of disease allow individual treatment to be adapted for each patient.

- Stage I (simple hypertrophy observed by Anoscopy): Medical Treatment (Fibers/ Laxative, Venotonic treatment, topics)
Rubber band ligation if symptomatic conducted in the private practice under local anaesthesia)

- Stage II (prolapse upon straining with spontaneous reduction): Medical Treatment
Rubber band ligation, or more often surgical treatment with Laser or with Selective Anopexy (“lifting of the haemorrhoids”)

- Stage III (Prolapse becomes permanent but can be digitally replaced): Surgical Treatment with Laser associated with mucopexy or Selective Anopexy or treated by conventional haemorrhoidectomy.
Circular stage III haemorrhoids:  Surgical treatment with circular mucosectomy by stapling (Longo).

- Stage IV (fibrotic haemorrhoids, irreversible): Surgical Treatment by conventional haemorrhoidectomy is necessary in general.
In case of acute haemorrhoid thrombosis an intensive medical treatment is mandatory, along with prescribed medications, laxative, flavonoïd, corticoid cream and local care. In a second step and after healing, a surgical treatment may be required.

A minimal invasive treatment with Laser associated with mucopexy if needed is a preferred treatment for heamorrhoids Stages II and III; less painful and with a speedy recovery.
