PROCEDURE FOR PROLAPSE AND HEMORROID / 痔疮手术 / PEMBEDAHAN BUASIR

More than 50 percent of the U.S. population will develop symptomatic hemorrhoids in their lifetime. Many patients may not be aware of a surgical option that comfortably treats their condition and allows them to return to normal activity with a faster recovery and less pain than conventional hemorrhoidectomy.

Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (PPH) surgery is a fast, less painful surgical option for patients with advanced cases of hemorrhoids. PPH is not a hemorrhoidectomy in principle; it is a hemorrhoidopexy. The procedure is indicated for:
• Patients with second- and third-degree hemorrhoids after failure of other therapies
• Patients with fourth-degree hemorrhoids (except those with large external components)
• Patients with rectal mucosal prolapse






How PPH works
Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids restores hemorrhoidal tissue to its original, normal anatomical position.

            

Using a specifically designed circular stapler, the prolapse of hemorrhoidal tissue is reduced by excising a band of the prolapsed anal mucosa membrane. This is accomplished by pulling prolapsed tissue into the circular stapler, removing excess tissue while stapling the remaining hemorrhoidal tissue. as a result, hemorrhoidal tissue is restored to its original anatomical position.

This alternative approach to the surgical treatment of hemorrhoids provides superior Patient outcomes.


•  LESS PAIN
   PPH is performed above the dentate line inside the anal canal, affecting fewer nerve endings than traditional procedures.

•  FAST RECOVERY
   Patients experience a quicker return to normal activities compared to those treated with conventional techniques.

•  SHORT PROCEDURE
   PPH usually is performed in 25 to 30 minutes under local, regional or general anesthesia
