This treatment for piles is also called Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy or Stapled Hemorrhoidopexy.
This procedure involves removal of the abnormally enlarged hemorrhoidal tissue and repositioning of the remaining hemorrhoidal tissue back to its normal position. This is required for severe cases of Hemorrhoid prolapse.
PPH uses a circular stapler to reduce prolapse and this procedure avoids wounds thus reducing post-operative pain and a speedy recovery. This is recommended for severe cases of Internal Hemorrhoidal Prolapse. It might be suggested for patients with minor degree hemorrhoids, which are non-responsive to conventional treatments.
PPH helps in correcting the symptoms associated with prolapse and also problem like bleeding from the piles are resolved.
The unique circular stapler reduces the degree of prolapse by expunging a circumferential strip of mucosa from the proximal anal canal. This pulls the hemorrhoidal cushions back to their normal position. This procedure is normally done with general anaesthesia within an hour. Some cases are done under local anaesthesia.
There might be a few short-term post-procedure complications like, bleeding and severe pain.
