Recurrent bleeding, sliding down of the anal parts, painful and hard stools are some of the common problems faced by patients suffering from piles. A change in dietary habits as also the remedies provided by various fields of medicine provides only a temporary relief. Conventional therapies like injection of piles, banding, etc., also fail to provide a permanent cure. Pain associated with such procedures and in the week to follow, not to mention the loss of working hours, make these options unfavorable to the patient.
After years of surgical research, the 21st century saw the invention of stapler surgery (MIPH), which ensures a complete removal of piles from its roots in a circumferential 360 degree pattern. This surgery certainly has an edge over its counterparts because of the minimal blood loss and negligible pain. The patient has to undergo just 24 hour hospitalisation and can return to work in 3 days. This technique also carries the advantage of a shorter operating time and the least chance of recurrence.
Thus, with expanding horizons in the surgical field and rise of stapler surgery, patients of piles can heave a sigh of relief.
A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or the fascia of an organ through the wall of the cavity that normally contains it. There are different kinds of hernia, each requiring a specific management or treatment.
Hernias may or may not present with either pain at the site, a visible or palpable lump, or in some cases more vague symptoms resulting from pressure on an organ which has become "stuck" in the hernia, sometimes leading to organ dysfunction. Fatty tissue usually enters a hernia first, but it may be followed or accompanied by an organ.
Symptoms may not be present in some inguinal hernias while in some other hernias, including inguinal, they are. Symptoms and signs vary depending on the type of hernia. In the case of reducible hernias, a bulge in the groin or in another abdominal area can often be seen and felt. When standing, such bulge becomes more obvious. Besides the bulge, other symptoms include pain in the groin that may also include a heavy or dragging sensation, and in men, there is sometimes pain and swelling in the scrotum around the testicular area.Calling your health care provider -
