What is Piles?

Piles are also called hemorrhoids. These are a cluster of blood vessels, veins, muscles, elastic fibers, and inflamed tissues in the anal area. Regardless of age and sex, any individual can get affected by different types of piles like grade-1, 2, 3, and 4. Pregnant women can also develop piles as a result of excessive pressure in the lower body. However, more commonly, piles/hemorrhoids are noticed in people with poor diet [low fiber foods], unhygienic lifestyle, and unsanitary washroom habits.

Many people can get confused between piles, fissures, fistulas, and other rectal problems. So, we recommend you to have a consultation with our best proctologists to get diagnosed from which type of anal disease you are suffering from.

Diagnosis

Piles or haemorrhoids are diagnosed through a visual examination which is known as rectal digital exam. During the examination, the doctors insert a gloved lubricated finger inside the rectum to check the severity of the condition. During other times, piles is diagnosed with an anoscope, proctoscope and sigmoidoscope. These tests may help the doctor to evaluate the severity of the disease, and if there is any risk of colorectal cancer.

Surgery

The surgical procedure to treat hemorrhoids is known as hemorrhoidectomy. The hemorrhoid is removed in this procedure either through open or laser surgery. The surgeon will numb the area with anesthesia and make an incision in the anal tissue around the hemorrhoid. The swollen vein inside the hemorrhoid is removed in the process and once done, the surgical site is sewn closed or left open to heal.

What happens if piles is not treated on time?

Piles, if left untreated, can cause bleeding. External hemorrhoids can cause blood clotting or thrombosis, which leads to severe pain and sometimes strangulation. Untreated piles can cause blood loss during bowel movement which further causes anaemia. Additionally, piles can also cause Gangrene which means the death of the tissue caused due to lack of blood flow.

What are the surgical treatment options for piles?

Banding: The doctor places one or two elastic bands around the base of the piles, cutting off its blood supply. After a few days, the piles fall off. This is effective for treating hemorrhoids of all grades, except grade IV hemorrhoids.

Sclerotherapy: Medicinal solution is injected into the tissues to shrink the hemorrhoids. The hemorrhoid eventually shrinks up in a few days. This is effective for grade II and III piles and is considered a better procedure than banding.

Laser coagulation: This is also known as infrared light coagulation, where a device is used to burn the hemorrhoid tissue. This technique is used to treat grade I and II hemorrhoids, mostly internal piles.

Hemorrhoidectomy: The excess tissue that is causing the bleeding is surgically removed. This is performed in different ways and may be done under local anesthetic or a general anesthetic. This surgery is most effective for complete removal of the piles, but there are potential complications including difficulties while passing stools as well as urinary tract infections.

Laser surgery for piles is preferred over open surgery as it is minimally invasive. There are several benefits of laser surgery over traditional surgery as the recovery is quicker and easier and the patient can resume work within 2-3 days after the surgery.

Hemorrhoid stapling: In this process, a surgical staple is used to fix the hemorrhoid back into place inside the rectum. The blood supply is stopped to the hemorrhoidal tissues. This procedure is usually less painful than open surgery for piles.

When do you need piles surgery?

Piles or hemorrhoids can often create excruciating pain in the anal area. But, the good news is that in most cases, patients do not require surgery and the symptoms can be managed through non-surgical treatments, such as home remedies, and changes in dietary and lifestyle habits.

A patient needs to undergo surgery for piles when the symptoms get worse or when home remedies fail to provide any relief to piles symptoms. A patient can also be recommended to undergo surgery in case of emergencies such as heavy bleeding with stool or thrombosis. 

What are the advantages and disadvantages of laser surgery for piles?

Modern laser treatment for piles is one of the least painful surgical treatments for piles or hemorrhoids. Conventional surgery for piles used to inflict a lot of pain in the patients. Comparatively, laser surgeries are much safer to undergo and do not create any sparks in the surgical area. The biggest advantage of undergoing laser surgery for pikes is that it does not involve any bleeding. The treatment is completed within 3-45 minutes and the patient is discharged within the quickest possible time.

The only down-side of the treatment is that the use of advanced tools and equipment make the process a little more expensive than open surgeries. But with Pristyn Care, this particular downside can also be attended to at ease, considering the multiple financing options and payment modes. 

Advantages of laser surgery for piles overweights any day. 

What happens during and after laser surgery for piles?

Laser piles surgery does not involve any cuts or stitches in the tissues. In laser piles surgery, the surgeon precisely focuses laser heat or laser energy on the affected area for a few minutes. The pain inflicted in the process is very minimal. 

After the surgery, the patient may experience a little soreness and pain in the anal surgical site for the next few days. For the initial few days after the surgery, the person may feel some amount of pain while passing stools. To relieve the pain, the doctor may prescribe stool-softeners, laxatives, antibiotics and pain-killers to make a pain-free bowel movement. Overall, laser surgery for piles is a quick, hassle-free, and effective treatment for people of all age groups.

Best ways to prevent piles
