Clinical and Pathological Study of the Rectal Mucosa in Cases of Bleeding Per Rectum
It was showed that bleeding via rectum in middle-aged men is frequent and colonoscopy has been shown to be a useful diagnostic technique.
Still a Case of “No Pain, No Gain”? An Updated and Critical Review of the Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Management Options for Hemorrhoids in 2020
There are numerous treatment options for haemorrhoids, each with their own evidence-base, and the balance continues to be sought between long-term efficacy, minimisation of postoperative pain, and preservation of anorectal function.
The potential of Arum spp. as a cure for hemorrhoids: chemistry, bioactivities, and application
According to ethnobotanical data, the most frequent biological activity of several Arum species which deserves special attention is against hemorrhoids and it is still poorly studied with modern pharmacological tests.

  • 2019
A specific questionnaire is needed to evaluate the global impact of anal disorders on patients’ daily lives and avoid ignoring symptoms such as bleeding, pain and itching.
Jedijedi: Indigenous versus western knowledge of rectal haemorrhoids in Ibadan, Southwestern Nigeria
The contours of indigenous and western knowledge systems through jedijedi are examined to extend understanding of global knowledge production and deployment narratives and realities and a major challenge is the refusal to acknowledge the disease in western medical epistemologies leading to prevalence of the disease.

The composition of anal basal pressure
The maximal anal basal pressure (MABP) was measured with probes of 0.3, 1, 2 and 3 cm diameter in 21 subjects, 60 years old, without anal pathology, and it was deduced that optimal stool diameter is about 2 cm.
Stapled Hemorrhoidopexy Compared With Conventional Hemorrhoidectomy: Systematic Review of Randomized, Controlled Trials
Stapled hemorrhoidopexy has unique potential complications and is a less effective cure compared with hemorrhoidectomy, and may be offered to patients seeking a less painful alternative to conventional surgery.
Short-Term and Long-Term Results of Combined Sclerotherapy and Rubber Band Ligation of Hemorrhoids and Mucosal Prolapse
Combined triple sclerotherapy and rubber band ligation is an effective treatment for early hemorrhoids and incomplete mucosal prolapse, with low rates of recurrence, complications, and hemorrhoidectomy, and it can be repeated easily.
Closedvs. open hemorrhoidectomy—Is there any difference?
Both methods are fairly efficient treatment for hemorrhoids, without serious draw-backs, but the closed method has no advantage in postoperative pain reduction, but wounds heal faster, and the risk of wound dehiscence seems exaggerated.
Hemorrhoidectomy vs. Lord's method: 17‐Year follow‐up of a prospective, randomized trial
Hemorrhoidectomy can be considered to be a safe procedure for treatment of hemorrhoidal disease, with excellent long‐term results, and anal dilation is associated with a high percentage of complaints of fecal incontinence, which should be abandoned.
Randomized clinical trial of micronized flavonoids in the early control of bleeding from acute internal haemorrhoids
Effective and rapid non‐invasive control of acute bleeding could be of practical use in scheduling surgery to a time convenient to both patient and surgeon.
Life-threatening retroperitoneal sepsis after hemorrhoid injection sclerotherapy
A case of life-threatening retroperitoneal sepsis after injection sclerotherapy for first-degree hemorrhoids is presented.
