Treatment of hemorrhoids with latex rings (latex ligation)

Preparation for the examination

To avoid the development of bleeding in the first day after ligation with latex rings, it is recommended to perform cleansing enemas. The day before the procedure, a patient should follow a diet that excludes the intake of gas-forming foods. For more information about the preparation for the procedure and individual features of treatment, the patient can get a preliminary consultation with a proctologist at the St. Paraskeva Medical Center.

Peculiarities of carrying out

The latex ligation procedure for a qualified proctologist at St. Paraskeva Medical Center is not difficult to perform. The duration of the procedure is 10-15 minutes. The patient is laid on his/her back on a special chair. After that, with the help of a modern device — a ligator — the proctologist applies a latex ring to the hemorrhoidal node, which ensures the cessation of blood supply to the hemorrhoidal node and causes it to become dry. There is a natural falling off of the node on the second to fourth day after the procedure. Connective tissue is formed at the site of the detachment, and the area heals. After completing the procedure, the patient returns to his/her usual daily life.
