Abstract

The authors report their experience with 57 patients suffering from first, second, and third-degree hemorrhoids. Elastic ligature of internal hemorrhoid nodules was done ambulatorily with good results and no important complications. From these results, and considering the ease of the procedure, the authors agree with other experts that this method of treating hemorrhoids may become more and more popular.
