Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids, also known as hemorrhoids, are swollen and sagging cavernous bodies. These cavernous bodies are located in the rectum just above the anus. Sometimes they are so swollen that they bulge out.

Treatment of hemorrhoids

The treatment of hemorrhoids can include:

  • lifestyle advice and diet
  • treatment with elastic bands or rubber band ligatures (Barron ligature). The prolapsed mucous membrane just above the erectile cells is tied off with rubber bands and dies. As a result, the erectile tissues return to their original position.
  • Hemorrhoidopexy
  • Hemorroidectomy
