PILES IN A NUTSHELL
Recurrent bleeding after passing stools, sliding down of the anal parts, painful
and hard stools are some of the common problems faced by patients suffering
from piles. A change in dietary habits and some of the home remedies may
offer relief to those in the primary stages. However, in case of an advanced
disease, a permanent cure can be challenging. Conventional therapies like
injection of piles, banding etc. fail to provide a guaranteed relief. Pain
associated with such procedures, and in the weeks to follow, not to mention
the loss in working hours, makes these options unfavorable to the patients.
With so many quacks boasting of a complete cure and with all the
misconceptions associated with this disease, a person suffering from piles is
usually left in a muddle!
To begin with, lets understand where the problem lies. Piles, basically is the
swelling of the blood vessels near the anal opening and a sliding down of the
lining of the anal canal. It usually starts with itching around the anal opening
associated with a feeling of heaviness. Later, bleeding from this area post
defecation with/without pain make appearance. The question that now arises
is that who is likely to get this dreadful disease that makes every morning
unwelcome? The most common cause is constipation which requires straining
during defecation that exerts pressure over the blood vessels in the area,
causing them to swell, elongate and slide down the anal opening. When the
hardened stools come in contact with these blown up blood vessels, the
friction between the two causes the vessels to rupture and bleeding ensues,
the stage of the disease when the patient begins to panic. The increased
abdominal pressure in obesity or in pregnancy also has a similar effect on the
blood vessels which is the reason why this problem is common during these
All said and done, how does one prevent or stop piles at an early stage? A fiber
rich diet which includes sprouts, green vegetables, fruits and increasing the
water intake keeps the stools soft, prevents constipation and the resultant
straining during defecation. Foods rich in flavonoids like apples, berries,
bananas, oranges, sprouts, onions, tomatoes etc. are particularly beneficial for
their anti-inflammatory property.
As the disease advances, a systematic clinical examination and diagnosis from
a specialist is of utmost importance. Treatment options include diet
modification, medicines, conventional surgeries and the new world treatments
including MIPH (Stapler surgery) and Laser surgery. Unless it’s a very early
disease, the various medicines for piles provide only a temporary relief. With
the conventional therapies, the patient has to face problems like blood loss,
pain and narrowing of the anal opening. Again, these techniques do not
guarantee removal of piles from the roots.
After years of surgical research, the 21st century witnessed the invention of the
stapler surgery (MIPH), which ensures complete removal of piles from the
roots in a circumferential 360degree pattern. Laser Hemorrohoidoplasty (LHP),
another innovative treatment also gives excellent results. These surgeries
certainly have an edge over their counterparts as there is minimal blood loss
and negligible pain. With a meagre 24hour hospitalization the patient can
return to work in 3 days. These methods also guarantee the advantage of a
short operating time and the least chance of recurrence.
Thus with the expanding horizons of the surgical field, a patient suffering from
piles can be assured of a permanent cure. It’s just a matter of taking the first
step and seeking help.
