Rubber band ligation of haemorrhoids is a successful method of treating mainly internal piles. It done as an outpatient or Day case procedure or in combination with colonoscopy or flexble sigmoidoscopy examination of colon and rectum.
Proctoscopy is carried out to assess the piles and then rubber band s are applied using especial suction banding equipment. The tight band strangulate the blood supply to the piles and they quickly fall off. Local anaesthetic may be used like lignocaine jel.
After the procedure some discomfort and sometimes a feeling of wanting to open bowel is experienced. It is due to swelling of strangulating haemorrhoids inside the anal call causing the feeling.
Rubber band ligation of piles can also be repeated or done in two or more sessions.
The person to best judge which haemorrhoids are suitable for rubber band ligation is an experienced colorectal surgeon.
