Haemorrhoidal disease is a social problem
Predisposing or associated condition include hereditary factors, constipation increased intra-abdominal pressure, straining, strenuous work and psychic distress.
We Undertake Stapled Haemorrhoidopexy
What has been clarified from a physiopathological standpoint clearly indicates the recto-anal prolapsed as the predisposing condition for haemorrhoidal complications and continence disorders.
It is therefore obvious that the surgical correction has to address the reduction of the prolapsed. This is obtained via a circumferential resection of the rectal mucosa in the anal canal, thus preserving the integrity of the haemorrhoidal cushions and simultaneously restoring the anal mucosa, the haemorrhoidal cushions and the anoderma upwards in the anal canal to their original anatomical position. This procedure with a dedicated circular stapler. Which operates a sterile muco-mucosal suture in an environment with high bacterial impaction.
The muco-mucosal suture interrupts the terminal branches of the superior haemorrhoidal artery, thus probably causing a reduction of the flow to the sub-epithelial spaces and the mucosal prolapsed. However, we cannot affirm that this contributes to the solution of the symptoms.
Advantages of the Longo Technique
- Cure or significant improvement of the pre-operative symptoms without removing the haemorrhoidal vessels.
- The anatomical and functional restoration of the anal canal
- Benefits compared to conventional open haemorroidectomy.
- Less pain
- Shorter wound healing time
- Shorter time to normal bowel function
- Faster return to normal activity
- Shorter length of hospital stay
- Shorter operating time
- Enhanced patient satisfaction
- Less postoperative care after discharge.
