Rubber Band Ligation – Internal Hemorrhoids

I Recommend: -:( ):- Rubber Band Ligation – Internal Hemorrhoids Rubber band ligation is an outpatient treatment for second-degree internal hemorrhoids. In this procedure, a small band is applied to the base of the hemorrhoid, stopping the blood supply to the hemorrhoidal mass. The hemorrhoid will then shrivel and die within 2 to 7 days. The shriveled hemorrhoid and band will fall off during normal bowel movements. Rubber band ligation is a popular procedure, as it involves less pain than surgical treatments of hemorrhoids, as well as a shorter recovery period. Its success rate is between 60 and 80percent. . . History. . Ligation of hemorrhoids was first recorded by Hippocrates in 460 BC, who wrote about using thread to tie off hemorrhoids. In modern history, ligation using rubber band was introduced in 1958 by Blaisdell and refined in 1963 by Barron, who introduced a mechanical device called the Barron ligator. . . Procedure. . Rubber band ligation procedure is as follows. .
