Urgent hemorrhoidectomy for hemorrhoidal crisis: PDF Only

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.

This work was done in Tri-Service General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan, and was presented to the Eighth International Congress of The Society of Colon-Rectal Surgeons in Melbourne, Australia, September 1980.
