Realistic Assessment Of Piles Surgery
To help to make an informed choice, there are a few things you should know about various pile surgical procedures.
First there are the particular non-invasive procedures such as latex banding or perhaps coagulation treatment. Latex banding involves placing a tight latex band around the pile, causing the pile to shrivel up and fall off. This is a relatively safe process, but it can take up to a week to complete the process, when time the pain could get quite intensive. Latex banding can only be used on piles of a certain size, as it's not suitable for piles that are too small to get a good lock on neither for piles too large to get the latex group around.

- Another non-invasive procedure will be cauterization therapy, which can be performed by laser, medicine, or freezing.
- In this instance, the effect of the procedure is to cut off blood flow into the pile with the source.
- All of these therapies are potentially very painful, but carry less chance for long term damage than full incisive surgery.
Coagulation treatment, which also causes the complete stoppage of blood to the pile, can also be an alternative. This is less effective than most, but also carries less risk as well as potential trauma, so it is frequently used for the elderly or perhaps for those who might not recover well.
- The first wide spread surgical procedure involves stapling the piles back up into the anal canal while excising just as much pile tissue as possible.
- This procedure carries much less risk of trauma and permanent damage than hemorrhoidectomy, but has a higher recurrence rate.
- People who take this option are about 3% more likely to experience a return of their piles.
- In addition, the surgeon needs to be specifically trained in this action for ideal results.
A Better Understanding of Hemorrhoids The physiology of hemorrhoids is quite different from how it is popularly understood by the human population. Physiologically speaking, it is a mass of tissue that is a supporting device in stool control. It is also referred to as a cushion like...
- Hemorrhoidal arterial ligation is another alternative to full hemorrhoidectomy.
- In this procedure, the doctor finds the blood vessels feeding the artery, and closes it right above those vessels' entry into the pile.
- It is also much less traumatic than a full hemorrhoidectomy, and offers a 93% success rate in stopping piles from returning.
Then there is hemorrhoidectomy, which involves the total elimination of the pile and around tissue by either a scalpel or laser.
Neither has been proven in clinical studies to work a lot better than the other, and while laser surgery might reduce the chance of scalpel-borne infection, it can also cause deep tissue burns if the surgeon isn't adequately skilled. A hemorrhoidectomy does carry the highest chance of permanent pile removal. However, it also has the greatest potential for extremely bad side effects such as long term incontinence and permanent nerve damage. These side effects are fortunately really rare, but you should be aware of them. In addition, hemorrhoidectomy has the longest recovery time and usually a long period of pain and inflammation.
- Knowing the risks is an important part of deciding whether surgery is right for you.
- Only you, along with your surgeon's assistance, can decide on the pile surgery right for you.
