This technique is based on replacing of prolapsed internal hemorrhoids inside the anal
canal using a circular stapling clip that removes a narrow collar of mucosa from the
upper part of the anal canal. There is not the circular resection of rectum, which
sometimes is accomplished for treatment of hemorrhoid and causes the stricture. During
this operation, only part of mucosa above dentate line is removed. Mucosal fault is
reestablished by tantalum clamps. At the end of procedure hemorrhoidal piles are not
removed. They are just lifted and fixed in anal canal; piles are also reduced because of
decreasing of arterial inflow.
The duration of this operation is around 15min. That is much less comparing with classic
hemorrhoidectomy (around 40).
This method has some evident advantages
- highly effective for patients who have evident prolapse
- post-operative pain is obviously reduced
- patients don’t need long-term hospitalization
