Urgent hemorrhoidectomy for hemorrhoidal crisis.

Wang, Chen-Hwu M.D.

Collapse Box


: Fifty-six patients who had hemorrhoidal crisis underwent urgent radical hemorrhoidectomy with anoderm-flap repair. There was no significant increase in complications as compared with elective hemorrhoidectomy. One patient (1.8 per cent) had one of his three flaps separate. Anal packing with a central-tubed cotton plaque is of benefit to ensure takes of anoderm flaps and in reducting postoperative hemorrhage.
