Symptomatic anal cushions.
Haemorrhoidal venous cushions are normal structures
of anorectum and universally present in all persons
unless previous intervention has taken place.
It is a common anal pathology but many patients are
embarrassed to seek medical attention.
Loss of rectal muscle tone.
Spinal cord injury.
High socioeconomic status.
STRAINING AND CONSTIPATION
Low fibre diet
Less bulky stools
Straining at defecation
Increased intraanal pressure
Decreased venous return
Enlarged hemorrhoidal venous cushions
They are clusters of vascular tissue, smooth muscle and
connective tissue lined by normal epithelium of anal
They are commonly seen in left lateral, right anterior
and right posterior(3,7,11’o clock) position with patient
in lithotomy position.
Depending on anal origin within analcanal and relation
to dentate line haemorrhoids divided in to
I. internal haemorroids.
II. external haemorrhoids.
III. mixed haemorrhoids.
Lie above dentate line.
Covered by columnar
epithelium of anal canal.

GRADE I painless bleeding, no prolapse.
GRADE II prolapse on defecation that reduces
GRADE III prolapse that has to be reduced mannually.
GRADE IV permanent prolapse.
Treat only symptomatic haemorrhoids

Warm baths(sitz bath)-bid/tid.
High fibre diet.
Adequate fluid intake.
Proper anal hygiene.
To destroy internal haemorrhoids.
Rubber band ligation.
Laser therapy and radio wave ablation.
GRADE I,II haemorrhoids not improved by
Pt. kept in left lateral position.
5ml of sclerosant is injected submucosally
in to apex of pile pedicle.
5% phenol in arachis oil/almond oil.
Patient is reassessed after 8weeks.
Too deep injection has disastrous
consequences like pelvic
Barron's bander is used to slip tight
elastic bands on to base of pedicle of
Bands cause ischemic necrosis of
piles,which slough off in 10days.
Side effect is bleeding.
Grade III,IV haemorrhoids with severe symptoms.
Conservative or nonsurgical treatment fails.
Presence of anorectal conditions requiring surgery.
(fistula,fissure,large skin tags).
Intero-external haemorrhoids when external
haemorrhoid is well defined.
Open and closed techniques.
Open technique also called milligan-
Both involve ligation and excision of the
haemorrhoid but in open technique the
anal mucosa and skin are left open to heal
by secondary intention,and in closed
technique the wound is sutured.
Acute retension of urine.
THROMBOSED EXTERNAL HAEMORRHOIDS
Safely exiced when patient present within 48 to 72
hours of symptoms onset.
If present after 72 hours from symptom onset,
conservative therapy preferred.
SKIN TAGS excision when hygiene problem exists
