Abstract

In 1995, Morinaga et al. (Japan) reported on a new technique in the treatment of hemorrhoids. We report the results of our first 105 patients thus treated. By a specially designed proctoscope coupled with a Doppler transducer, the hemorrhoidal arteries are looked for and ligated. All stages of hemorrhoid were treated. This method is painless, successful, and has a low rate of complications. It is for outpatients and is an alternative to all other methods in the treatment of hemorrhoids.
