Hemorrhoids are an anatomical part of the large intestine. The problem occurs once they start to widen. In the wide hemorrhoid veins, blood flow can be obstructed and the tissue surrounding the veins becomes swollen, and if it gets inflamed, hemorrhoids can be quite painful. Hemorrhoids are enlarged, swollen, and inflamed veins in the posterior area of the large colon, the anal canal.
Hemorrhoids can be
Internal hemorrhoids—inside the anal canal
External hemorrhoids—they develop on the skin surrounding the anus
Atlas General Hospital experts dr Nemanja Zarić and dr Mladen Milošević, along with the Atlas medical team, will be performing the THD Doppler Method for hemorrhoids treatment intervention for a reduced price in the following period.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms: itchy skin around the rectum, painful, or uncomfortable sensation or bleeding while defecating, you most likely have hemorrhoids. The first symptom, or something that the patient first notices, is blood on the toilet paper, underwear, or the toilet, which can sometimes be dramatic.
Hemorrhoid bleeding can sometimes vary from smaller, but more common ones, to which we don’t pay much attention, which can lead to serious anemia with all symptoms of an anemic disease, to more intense ones which can lead to a large blood loss and put your life in danger.
In fact, heavy bleeding (caused by, for example, injuring the mucous membrane of the large colon) most likely leads to asking a doctor for help. With hemorrhoid thrombosis, the pain is what takes you to medical assistance.
THD Doppler Method for Hemorrhoids Treatment
THD Doppler Method for hemorrhoids treatment is the most advanced way of treating a hemorrhoid disease. It consists of tying the hemorrhoid arteries without making an incision and treating the prolapsed hemorrhoids. Transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization THD is a minimally invasive surgical approach in treating a hemorrhoidal disease. THD uses a doppler probe to locate the arteries that are connecting the blood to the hemorrhoids. By tying the arteries, the blood flow to the hemorrhoids will be stopped. The procedure is about 30 minutes long and it is performed under general anesthesia. There is no surgical tissue removal, so the postoperative pain is minimal. Operating on the hemorrhoids using this method can let you quickly continue with your everyday activities.
The THD method is usually used for small or medium-sized internal hemorrhoids that are not responding to the adequate conservative treatment.
The THD method is the least invasive compared to other surgical methods and it is the least painful and stressful for the patient. The THD procedure is performed as part of a one-day surgery and the patient can leave that very same day. Most commonly, it takes 5–6 days for the patient to return to their usual everyday activities.
