How is this procedure done
The patient is placed in the lithotomy position for easy accessibility of the rectum, then an
anal dilator is used for the easier expansion for visualization of the rectum. A suture is tired
about 5 cm above the dentate line of the rectum, above the internal hemorrhoids, and a stapler
is introduced anally and stapled onto the rectal mucosa and the suture is pulled. This cuts off
the blood supply of the affected hemorrhoids, therefore, will become ischaemic and die off
with time in addition to pulling them back into the anal/rectal cavity.
Patient preparation for the procedure
Take the analgesic agents given after the procedure to reduce the pain.
