Surgical Treatment of Hemorrhoids: Lift-up Submucosal Hemorrhoidectomy

  • Hyung Kyu Yang


The submucosal hemorrhoidectomy was described by A. G. Parks of St. Marks’ hospital in 1956. It is a kind of excision and ligation method, but preserves most of the mucosa. This method is currently prevalent in Europe, and about 20 % of hemorrhoid surgery is said to be performed by this method in Germany. The submucosal hemorrhoidectomy excises the hemorrhoidal tissue, but preserves the anoderm and the rectal mucosa as much as possible.
