Evolution of Treatment of Internal Hemorrhoids
During an outpatient procedure, a proctoscope is inserted into the anal opening to identify the hemorrhoids. Suction from the CRH O’Regan System is used to grasp the hemorrhoid and draw it into the ligator. A rubber band is then applied around the base of the hemorrhoid. The application of a rubber band stops the flow of blood to the tissue which will eventually shrink and fall off. The procedure may be repeated based on the size and numer of hemorrhoids present. This fast and generally painless procedure is an innovative approach to the treatment of internal hemorrhoids.
