Stapling (MIPH) minimally invasive procedure for haemorrhoids-
Stapling is an alternative to a traditional haemorrhoidectomy. It's usually only done to treat prolapsed haemorrhoids and is carried out under general / regional anaesthetic. The piles are stapled to the wall of the anal canal, which reduces their blood supply and makes them smaller.
The surgery is performed in the painless area of the anal canal ie. Above the dentate line which makes the procedure virtually painfree.
Principle of the surgery here is to bring up the prolapsed mucosa into its original position, lifting the hemorrhoidal tissue into place.
In general, you could return to work within 3-4 days or so.
MIPH has the advantage of having a shorter recovery time and it also tends to be less painful than a haemorrhoidectomy.
|4-5 DAYS for recovery||4-5 WEEKS for recovery|
|Minimal follow up||Frequent follow up|
|No incontinence, no relapse||There are chances|
If too much muscle tissue is drawn into the device, it can result in damage to the rectal wall, resulting in inflammation or infection.(very rare)
The internal muscle of the sphincter may be damaged, resulting in short-term dysfunction, such as severe pain or incontinence.(Very rare)
MIPH offers Smaller incisions resulting in reduced pain and discomfort, Minimal scarring, Greater surgical precision, Fewer complications, Less blood loss and Reduced risk of infection which leads to Shorter hospital stays & faster recovery.
