Advantages and disadvantages of high-frequency electrosurgical treatment of hemorrhoids

With the improvement of the technical level of surgical treatment of hemorrhoids, the trauma is significantly reduced, and more and more popular among patients. Therefore, external stripping and internal ligation, automatic hemorrhoid ligation, hemorrhoidal upper mucous membrane ring resection and nailing have gradually become popular, although minimally invasive surgery is positive, but its indications are narrow.   

Therefore, high-frequency electrosurgical operation combined with the advantages of traditional ligation and circumligation, the use of electrosurgical hemorrhoids resection, its removal effect is better.

Advantages of high-frequency electrotome as a commonly used surgical instrument:

1, less bleeding, electrical coagulation through physical action to cut, promote coagulation, reduce the damage to the operation;

2. Electric coagulation can heat tissues, produce vaporization and coagulation, reduce vascular damage, and achieve the purpose of hemostasis.

Therefore, high-frequency electrotome can be used in the treatment of hemorrhoids, which can be simultaneously treated with ligation and excision, and electrocoagulation and hemostasis at the same time.

Compared with traditional surgery, high-frequency electrosurgical treatment of less bleeding, no suture, no postoperative suture removal.

However, the high-frequency electrotome is not suitable for patients with metal devices because it may produce smoke, and it may cause conductive tissue damage.

Therefore, accurate operation is required in the operation process. Based on the traditional ligation method, the use of instruments and ligation can effectively treat internal hemorrhoids, shorten the operation time, shorten the bleeding time, and avoid conductive tissue damage.

It should be noted that no matter traditional surgery or high-frequency electrosurgical surgery, there will be postoperative complications and postoperative pain is strong. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen postoperative management and defecation function training.
