Hemorrhoids are anal pads rich in varicose blood vessels. Traditional electric knife or scalpel removes hemorrhoids, which results in heavy bleeding, long operation time and severe postoperative pain. However, the treatment of hemorrhoids by laser, freezing, injection and other therapies is incomplete and has a high recurrence rate. In 2001, LigaSure hemorrhoidectomy was first carried out abroad. In 2006, we started to carry out LigaSure hemorrhoidectomy under local anal anesthesia in China, which realized minimally invasive hemorrhoidectomy. The expert in this technology has treated more than 300 cases so far. It has achieved a very satisfactory clinical effect and has made a significant breakthrough in the surgical treatment of hemorrhoids. Compared with the current traditional method of hemorrhoidectomy, LigaSure hemorrhoidectomy has the following advantages:
1. The surgical method has a wide range of indications, suitable for the treatment of hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids and mixed hemorrhoids, thrombotic hemorrhoids, blunt hemorrhoids, inflammatory hemorrhoids, etc., especially suitable for third and fourth stage hemorrhoids and prolapsed hemorrhoids.
2. The LigaSure vascular closure system can close blood vessels within 7mm in diameter, and remove hemorrhoids on the basis of blood vessel closure. There is almost no bleeding during the operation, which can be called "bloodless surgery".
3. There is no need to ligate, suture blood vessels and bleeding points during the operation, and the wound does not need to be sutured, and the operation is performed under local anesthesia. Therefore, the operation time is greatly shortened compared with the traditional operation method. The average 7 minutes from the beginning of anesthesia to the end of the operation.
4. When LigaSure closes the blood vessel, the heat conduction distance is short, and the local reaction after the operation is light, so the postoperative pain is much lighter than the traditional operation, which overcomes the common people's mentality of "talking about hemorrhoid surgery".
5. Due to the application of LigaSure technology, the minimally invasive anesthesia and surgery, there are very few complications after the operation, and there is no need to change the dressing, so the patient does not need to be hospitalized, in the outpatient operation, and can walk home after the operation.
6. The curative effect is good. After half a year after the operation, the patient's satisfaction with this operation is 99%.
7. The cost of surgery is low. Traditional methods generally cost more than 6,000 yuan. The total cost of this technology is only about 2,000 yuan.
