For the minimally invasive treatment of "hemorrhoids", I decided to first understand one thing-what is hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids are a common disease in the anorectal department. As the saying goes, "ten people have nine hemorrhoids." "Hemorrhoids" is a sign of age and a symbol of sexual maturity. Hemorrhoids are the normal anatomical structure of the human body. Not all hemorrhoids require surgical treatment. Only symptoms such as "bleeding", "prolapse", and "pain" affect you Only the "hemorrhoids" of his life need treatment, and not all "hemorrhoids" need surgery.
There are currently two views on the cause of "hemorrhoids": one thinks that hemorrhoids are raised veins formed by varicose veins at the lower end of the rectum or anal canal. One is that hemorrhoids are a special tissue structure called "anal cushion", which has been formed in the fetus, and its function is to assist the normal closure of the anus and control defecation, just like the function of a faucet gasket. .
What is "minimally invasive"? As the name implies, it is a technique of minimal wounds and traumas, that is, a technique that only causes minimal wounds to the patient during surgical treatment and leaves only minimal wounds after surgery. It is a technological achievement relative to traditional surgery. There is no accurate definition of minimally invasive. However, we believe that minimally invasive surgery should be compared to traditional surgery, with four main characteristics: small incision, less trauma, quick recovery, and less pain. Minimally invasive surgery is a medical revolution brought about by high technology, such as various types of laparoscopic surgery.
At present, most of the "minimally invasive" operations for "hemorrhoids" refer to the removal of hemorrhoids through methods such as staplers, ligatures, HCPT ablation, etc. The external hemorrhoids, especially the type of hemorrhoids dominated by multiple epidermal external hemorrhoids, obviously cannot pass this type of method. The treatment still requires laser, microwave, ultrasonic knife, high frequency capacitance field and ordinary scalpel to remove. In fact, after many years of clinical observation, the healing time and wound size after surgery have not seen any obvious advantages compared with the traditional "external stripping and internal ligation, sclerosing agent injection", and some even far The healing time of ligation is exceeded.
Regarding postoperative pain, we believe that whether the pain is not painful depends on the doctor’s surgical technique, the patient’s tolerance to the pain, and the patient’s psychology, and at the current medical level, we also have some methods for postoperative defecation. Most of the pain is a short-term pain that is fully tolerable, and there is no legendary "pain better than having a child".
There are also incisions that have not healed completely after "minimally invasive" surgery, that is, the wound needs a healing process, not everything is better after "minimally invasive" surgery.
Any kind of disease has its law of occurrence and development. What a doctor can do is to do some treatment according to the law of the disease, so there is "To Cure Sometimes, To Relieve Often, To Comfort Always (sometimes to cure; often to help) ; Always to comfort.)."
For a disease, there is only a suitable treatment method, not the best treatment method.
