Fast and easy haemorrhoid treatment could replace conventional surgery
Haemorrhoids are clusters of vascular tissues, smooth muscles, and connective tissues that lie along the anal canal. Haemorrhoid disease, characterised by swelling, bleeding, itching, and discomfort, is one of the most common ailments. Despite its low morbidity, it has significant impact on quality of life. In severe cases, surgery is the only option. Within the last decade, mucopexy or recto anal lifting (of the hemorrhoidal prolapse) has emerged as a more conservative surgical treatment than conventional cutting or stapling. Now, PexyEazy has made that procedure easier, faster, and less expensive. Without the need for general anaesthesia, the small single-use device PexyEazy® can accomplish mucopexy within minutes. EU funding is moving the device to the clinic for trials and eventual commercialisation.
