Hemorrhoids are a common ailment. They occur naturally in the body and are characterized by swollen or dilated blood vessels in or around the anus (internal or external hemorrhoids). Not all hemorrhoids are painful, but some can result in pain and pressure, soreness, itching, and bleeding. These symptoms can be made worse by straining during constipation.
Hemorrhoids can be caused by difficult bowel movements, straining during a bowel movement, and pregnancy, among other causes.
How THD Works
For hemorrhoids that do not go away on their own, THD may be performed. This treatment works best for small to medium internal hemorrhoids. After the arteries are sutured, further arterial blood is prevented from reaching the hemorrhoid. The hemorrhoid is ten able to shrink. You can return to your normal activities within approximately four days.
Following THD treatment, your doctor will likely suggest ways that you can help prevent further hemorrhoids from developing, such as increasing your intake of fiber.
