Hemorrhoids often present with pain and rectal bleeding, particularly bright red blood seen on toilet tissue. Except for pregnant women, hemorrhoids are rarely encountered in people younger than age 30. Hemorrhoidal bleeding is not generally a medical emergency and can be treated by sclerotherapy, rubber band ligation, or infrared coagulation. Extensive or server internal or external hemorrhoids may be removed surgically by hemorrhoidectomy.
Collateral vessels within the interior hemorrhoidal plexus are located below the anorectal line and are termed external hemorrhoids, while those that result from dilation of the superior hemorrhoidal plexus within the distal rectum are referred to as thin-walled, dilated, submucosal vessels that protrude beneath the anal or rectal mucosa. In their exposed position, they are subject to trauma and tend to become inflamed, thrombosed, and, in the course of time, recanalized. Superficial ulceration may occur.
Their possible causes include the following:
Chronic constipation and straining at stool
Venous statis of pregnancy
Tumours of the rectum
Internal Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are symptomatic anal cushions and characteristically lie in the 3, 7, and 11 o’ clock.
Bright red, painless, bleeding mucous discharge
Prolapse, pain only on prolapse
Four degrees of Hemorrhoids:
First degree – bleed only, no prolapse
Second degree – prolapse, but reduce spontaneously
Third degree – prolapse and have to be manually reduced
Fourth degree – permanently prolapsed
Treatment of hemorrhoids:
Symptomatic – advice about defecatory habits, stool softeners and bulking agents.
Injection of sclerosant
Transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialisation/ hemorroidopexy
External hemorrhoids relate to venous channels of the inferior hemorrhoidal plexus deep in the skin surrounding the anal verge and are not true hemorrhoids.
A thrombosed external hemorrhoid relates anatomically to the veins of the superficial or external hemorrhoidal plexus and is commonly termed a ‘perianal haematoma’.
It presents as a sudden onset, olive-shaped, painful blue subcutaneous swelling at the anal margin and is usually consequent upon straining at stool, coughing, or lifting a heavy weight.
The HemAway Seat uses your own body’s weight along with gravity to allow the hemorrhoid to gently and safely retract naturally to its normal internal position.
Non-invasive, painless, discreet treatment for prolapsed hemorrhoids. Safe and Effective.
Fits on any toilet or non-cushioned chair. Fits in luggage for portability.
No messy ointments to apply or touching of the hemorrhoid.
For use at home, office, or when traveling.
The HemAway Seat function by continually increasing the hydrostatic forces externally around the anal opening and a correspondingly decreasing the hydrostatic pressures internally around the rectal area. This process allows the blood trapped in the prolapsed hemorrhoids to gently return to its normal circulation pathways. This gradual decrease in size allows the hemorrhoids naturally slip into the rectal vault.
