Haemorrhoid Treatment Options are expanding


Representative of A. M. I. GmbH from Austria Richard Krapfenbauer introduced specialists with the advantages of this method, emphasizing that many contemporary methods has been developed during the last years, making haemorrhoid surgeries less traumatic and reducing the unpleasant post-operative period. HAL- RAR method is one of the latest. During the surgery tissues are not cut out, only internal stitches are put on the mucous membrane of the rectum – place without pain receptors.

Doctor Morinaga from Japan developed the HAL concept in 1995. Method was updated at the end of 2005 when RAR was added to it. Already for ten years in a row these surgeries are performed all around the world with high effectiveness and more than 100000 patients have undergone surgery with excellent results.

  Up to now several methods for treating of haemorrhoids have been offered in Latvia THD or transanal haemorrhoidal dearterialization being the most popular amongst them. HAL- RAR method is technically similar to THD, only it is more caring and with shorter treatment time. It provides less bleeding and fewer post-operative complications risk than any other method currently known in Latvia. HAL method is especially effective for the treatment of II and III degree haemorrhoids but in combination with RAR it can be applied for the III and IV degree haemorrhoids. Haemorrhoidal artery is ligated under ultrasound control – with the help of the Doppler probe the handle finds all arteries carrying blood through the haemorrhoidal nodes precisely, up to the one tenth of the millimetre. With the same device sutures are put on the arteries and artery is ligated, completely terminating the access of the blood to haemorrhoidal nodes. At the III and IV stage when haemorrhoidal nodes slide out from the anus, this technology in special manner can help to put them back into the rectum and affix to the wall  – in the place where they should be by nature. Sutures that are used to ligate arteries at the same time perform lifting of the mucous membrane of the anal channel, thus reducing or eliminating prolapsus of the mucous membrane.


Surgery lasts up to 20 minutes and can be performed by applying various types of anaesthesia.
