Realistic Assessment Of Piles Surgery
To make an informed choice, there are a few things you should know about various pile surgical procedures.
First there are the non-invasive procedures such as latex banding or perhaps coagulation therapy. Latex banding involves placing a tight latex band around the pile, causing the pile in order to shrivel up and tumble off. This is a relatively safe method, but it can take up to a week to complete the process, where time the pain could get quite intensive. Latex banding can only be used on piles of a certain size, because it's not suitable for piles that are too small to get a good lock on neither for piles too large to get the latex band around.
- Another non-invasive procedure is actually cauterization therapy, which can be performed by laser, medication, or freezing.
- In this instance, the effect of the procedure is to cut off blood flow into the pile from the source.
- All of these therapies are potentially really painful, but carry less chance of long term damage than full incisive surgery.
Coagulation remedy, which also leads to the complete stoppage of blood to the pile, can also be a choice. This is less effective than most, but also carries less risk and also potential trauma, so it is frequently used for the elderly or for those who might not recover well.
The first wide spread surgical procedure involves stapling the piles back up into the anal canal while excising the maximum amount of pile tissue as possible. This process carries much less risk of trauma and permanent harm than hemorrhoidectomy, but does have a higher recurrence rate. People who take this program are about 3% more likely to experience a return of their piles. In addition, the surgeon needs to be specifically trained in this action for optimal results.
- Hemorrhoidal arterial ligation is another alternative to full hemorrhoidectomy.
- In this process, the doctor finds the blood vessels feeding the artery, and closes it right above those vessels' entry into the pile.
- It is also a smaller amount traumatic than a full hemorrhoidectomy, and boasts a 93% success rate in stopping piles from returning.
Then there is hemorrhoidectomy, which involves the total removing the pile and around tissue by either a scalpel or laser.
Neither has been confirmed in clinical studies to work better than the other, and while laser surgery might reduce the chance of scalpel-borne infection, it can also cause deep tissue burns if the surgeon isn't enough skilled. A hemorrhoidectomy does carry the highest chance of permanent pile removal. However, it also has the biggest possibility of extremely bad side effects such as lifelong incontinence and permanent nerve damage. These side effects are fortunately really rare, but you should be aware of them. In addition, hemorrhoidectomy has the longest recovery time and usually a long period of pain and inflammation.
- Knowing the risks is an important part of deciding whether surgery is right for you.
- Only you, with your surgeon's assistance, can decide on the pile surgery right for you.
