Treatment of hemorrhoids with latex rings: for whom?

Rings at hemorrhoids is an effective method, which was used in the days of Hippocrates. This method is also actively used in modern proctology. Imposing rings on hemorrhoids nodes are suitable for patients who have found hemorrhoids on early stages. Just 10-15 minutes, and soon you will be able to forget about such a sensitive issue. Your doctor will tell you in detail when and how hemorrhoids disappears after the procedure, which preparation is required.

Latex ligation of external haemorrhoid node is prohibited in cases where between internal and external nodes there is no clear boundary. To a large extent it is typical for the combined hemorrhoids. Also it is impossible to put latex rings on the internal hemorrhoid node, which treated is qualitatively performed in ON Clinic in chronic paraproctitis, cracks in the anal canal and proctitis in the inflammation phase. This causes negative effects and complications after the intervention, even if careful preparation is carried out.

How to put latex rings in proctology?

Prior to installation to the patient, he can not take medications that affect blood clotting. Throughout the session, he is lying on his side. Only after occupation of this position, the doctor proceeds to ligation.

The method is as follows. On a hemorrhoidal node with a special tool, a ligator, there applied in the rectum a latex ring for hemorrhoids, which has already begun to develop. The ring overtights the haemorrhoid leg, which leads to violation of its feeding, and its fades away. Within a few weeks the node drops when defecating.

If anyone says that the hemorrhoids of the 3rd stage can be cured at a time – is a fraud and myth. At a time there can be imposed a ligature on one, maximum two nodes, the second step is carried out after 2-3 weeks.
