Authors: Ratto C, Orefice R, Tiso D, Martinisi GB, Pietroletti R Abstract Hemorrhoidal disease is a widespread proctologic clinical entity. Even if surgical excision is an effective treatment, it only represents the standard procedure for patients with high-grade hemorrhoids. Considering that most cases are grade I or II hemorrhoids, oral or topical therapies are widely used despite, currently, there are no satisfactory options for these kinds of treatments. The pathology involves the degeneration of the supporting tissue of the anal cushions, causing venous dilation, blood stagnation, formation of edematous venous...

Though the country is a huge polluter, it leads the world in the clean technologies that could make this feasibleWhen I first moved to China in 1990, winter meant coal.

Transanal hemorroidal deharterialization (THD) represents a safe and effective proctosurgical procedure that provides a targeted ligation of hemorrhoidal arteries through a Doppler probe combined with a plication of the prolapsing rectal mucosa, if necessary. This technique should be recommended for 2nd degree, 3rd degree, and 4th degree hemorrhoids providing a complete resolution of symptoms in almost all patients, avoiding life-threatening complications.

Hemorrhoid disease is a very common problem in the Medicare population. Prior work has shown significant variation in county level practices of hemorrhoidectomy; however, regional variation of rubber band ligation (RBL), which can be performed by a number of different practitioners in an office-based setting, has yet to be assessed. We aim to evaluate the variation of RBL and hemorrhoidectomy over a 7-year period.
