VILLASANA ROLDOS, Luís Ernesto. Anew surgical technique for treatment of hemorrhoidal disease. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2010, vol.49, n.1. ISSN 0034-7493.

INTRODUCTION: On the base of a new concept of hemorrhoidal disease we designed a new technique for its surgical treatment. The aim of present paper was to decrease the surgical treatment morbidity of this disease. METHODS: A non-randomized prospective analysis of patients seen between April, 2006 and June, 2008. The patients with grade III and IV hemorrhoidal disease were included. We describe the surgical technique. After surgery the course of all patients for more than 10 months was followed. RESULTS: Forty four patients were operated on and 30 patients (69%) under ambulatory regime. Only 6 patients (14%) had postoperative pain. Complications weren't greater than the reported ones using the hemorrhoidectomy. There was a 93,4% of efficiency. CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative morbidity was much better compared with the results reported using the hemorrhoidectomy techniques. The technique proposed offers a new option to improve the postoperative morbidity of surgical treatment in patients with hemorrhoidal disease. It is necessary carrying out of comparative studies with hemorrhoidectomy techniques.

Keywords : A new surgical technique; hemorrhoidal disease.
