Studies suggest that Stapled Piles Surgery ( also known as PPH - procedure for prolapse and hemorrhoids or MIPH - Minimally invasive procedure for hemorrhoids ) is an effective treatment, reducing operative bleeding, postoperative pain, the length of hospital stay, and encouraging a rapid return to normal activities when compared with conventional piles surgery.
This technique potentially provides a tool for reducing some of the problems associated with conventional surgery. The pile masses are compressed into a cup like cavity inside the stapler. When fired, the staples cut and seal simultaneously, thus causing minimal bleeding and as the cut line is above the nerves, there is reduction in post operative pain. However, stapling increases operative costs.
