Is Hemorrhoid Embolization right for you?

This procedure is suitable for patients who have undergone endoscopic or surgical treatment of their hemorrhoids, whose symptoms have recurred. Additionally, patients who are not candidates for (or who desire to avoid) endoscopic or surgical procedures because of general anesthetic risk, blood thinning medications, or other factors, may be candidates for hemorrhoid embolization.

Background Information

Hemorrhoids are a common anorectal disease that affect millions of people worldwide. They are enlargement of the normal hemorrhoidal cushions, a collection of connective tissue and blood vessels in the anal area. Hemorrhoids may cause the appearance of blood on tissue paper or be seen in the toilet after bowel movements. Sometimes the bleeding from hemorrhoids may be severe, and require blood transfusions. They may also cause other symptoms such as itching around the anal area, pain, or protrusion (“sticking out”) into the anal canal.

Jerusalem Vascular Hemorrhoid Treatment

Treatment Information:
Hemorrhoid Embolization

Rationale

Increased blood flow into the hemorrhoidal cushions is thought to be responsible for their enlargement, and thus the symptoms that hemorrhoids cause.

Reducing blood flow to the hemorrhoidal cushions has shown promising results in reducing hemorrhoid symptoms, especially chronic bleeding.

Hemorrhoid Embolization Procedure

The procedure itself requires only local anesthetic, and the catheter is inserted into the body through a tiny pin-hole in the wrist or upper leg. Most patients experience zero to minimal pain, which can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication. Patients are expected to go home the same day of the procedure, with immediate return to normal activities, and only a small ‘band-aid’ to show for their procedure!
