Abstract Common anorectal conditions include hemorrhoids, perianal pruritus, anal fissures, functional rectal pain, perianal abscess, condyloma, rectal prolapse, and fecal incontinence.

History and examination, including anoscopy, are usually sufficient for diagnosing these conditions, although additional testing is needed in some situations. The primary treatment for hemorrhoids is fiber supplementation. Patients who do not improve and those with large high-grade hemo...

AbstractHemorrhoidal disease (HD) treatment still remains controversial. In fact, despite many surgical progresses, postoperative pain, and discomfort remain the major weaknesses. Laser hemorrhoidoplasty (LHP) is a minimal invasive procedure for HD treatment determining the shrinkage of the hemorrhoidal piles by diode laser. The aim of the current study is to analyze the feasibility and efficacy of LHP in patients with II –III degrees hemorrhoids. Consecutive patients with II–III degree hemorrhoids were enrolled in the study and underwent an LHP treatment using a 1470-nm diode laser. Operative time, postoperati...
