LASER HAEMORRHOIDOPLASTY ( LHP ) Laser treatment for Piles


Laser Haemorrhoidoplasty is the preferred treatment for Grade 2 and early stages of Grade 3 Piles. This procedure is done under short general anaesthesia and takes about 20 minutes. Through the natural anal opening, laser energy is applied using a special radially emitting fibre. The controlled emission of laser energy causes vaporization leading the haemorrhoidal mass to shrink – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: LASER HAEMORRHOIDOPLASTY ( LHP ) Laser treatment for Piles

LHP Laser Hemorrhoidoplasty
  • (laser treatment of piles)
What is Laser Hemorrhoidoplasty
  • The most advanced method of surgical treatment of
    hemorrhoidal disease it has been used all around
    the world, as well as in healing hands clicnic
    for the past couple of years with excellent
  • It is very attractive due to minimum
    invasiveness postoperative course is almost
    painless there are no incisions, no sutures,
    open wounds and bleeding no complications that
    occur with classical techniques. Return to daily
    activities is possible after a very short time.
  • It is performed with hemorrhoids of grade II and
    III that are uncomplicated.
Description of the procedure
  • LHP is performed using BIOLITEC laser its fiber
    optical thread applies radial laser beam to
    target tissue. The laser beam causes a fibrous
    reaction in endothelial (inner) cells of
    hemorrhoidal vessels and in cells of connective
    tissue.Fibrous reaction leads to narrowing or
    even closing of the blood vessels that supply
    hemorrhoidal cushions with blood, which causes
    their deflation and drying. Likewise, fibrous
    reaction in peri hemorrhoidal connective tissue
    leads to retraction and fixation in the anal
    canal, which solves the problem of prolapse of
    hemorrhoids. In short, the same procedure
    alleviates all symptoms and discomforts caused by
    hemorrhoids bleeding, prolapse, pain.
  • Patients with grade II and III of hemorrhoidal
    disease characterized by some of the symptoms
    perianal eczema, itching, fresh blood in stool or
    on toilet paper, feeling of fullness in the anus,
    occasional pain in defecation with intermittent
    prolapse prolapse of nodes that can be
  • In Grade 3, the prolapsed haemorrhoidal mass does
    not go back on its own, but needs to be manually
    pushed back. Laser Haemorrhoidoplasty ( LHP ) is
    done in the early stages of Grade 3, the later
    stages would most often need a Stapler Surgery.
  • Most of the cases of Grade 2 and early stages of
    Grade 3 haemorrhoids are treated with Laser
  • LIMITATIONS- patients with grade IV of already
    advanced and unkempt hemorrhoidal disease with
    fixed non-reducible hemorrhoids, with irregular
    defecation or profuse bleeding and frequent
  • No cuts or stitches
  •  No urgency ( a feeling of having to rush to the
    toilet ) after the procedure.
  • No risk of rectal stenosis
  • Return to all life and work activities is
    possible a couple of days after the intervention.
  • Due to the aforementioned, postoperative course
    is very easy and relatively comfortable - it
    flows practically painlessly.
