Stapled haemorrhoidopexy


Overview

Stapled haemorrhoidopexy, also known as a stapled haemorrhoidectomy, is a surgical procedure primarily used for the treatment of prolapsing internal haemorrhoids and small external haemorrhoids using a specially-designed circular stapler. The stapler is inserted into the rectum, cutting off a circular ring of loose haemorrhoidal tissue that allows the haemorrhoid to prolapse. This pulls the haemorrhoid back into the anal canal and reduces the blood supply to the haemorrhoid, which shrink gradually following the procedure.

A stapled haemorrhoidopexy is performed under general anaesthesia, with postoperative pain considerably decreased compared to conventional surgery as the wound is closed and the stapled line is high inside the anal canal, saving patients from the need of wound care.
