The Conservative Treatment of Haemorrhoidal Complaints

  • J. J. Kirsch
Conference paper


Independently of surgical intervention — including rubber band ligation [1], cryosurgery [10] and maximal sphincter dilation [9] — sclerosing as a conservative treatment principle has a direct influence on the size of haemorrhoids [6, 16]. Nevertheless, there should be a very strong case in favour of such a measure before it is adopted. It is the best policy in the case of first-degree haemorrhoid and possibly also where secondary changes occur [8, 13, 19]. The risks involved should particularly be kept in mind: allergic reactions, bleedings, necroses, abscesses, even fistulae [6, 7, 18]. They are sometimes inevitable, sometimes avoidable, depending on the experience of the doctor. The question of the degree of efficiency and tolerance of such a step repeatedly arises.
