ABSTRACT

Background:

Stapled hemorrhoidopexy is a common treatment for grade 3 hemorrhoids. Patients with conditions that increase the risk of bleeding, as cardiac stents usage with clopidogrel bissulfate and liver cirrhosis, should receive an extra care in surgical procedures due to the high risk of bleeding. For this reason and for patients with third degree hemorrhoids we propose the use of stapled hemorrhoidopexy followed by the use of biological glue.

Aim:

Assess surgical outcomes in patients with hemorrhoids and high risk of bleeding submitted to stapled hemorrhoidopexy followed by biological glue.

Methods:

Between 2005 and 2015, 22 patients were analyzed, in a retrospective cohort study.

Results:

From 22 patients submitted to stapled hemorrhoidopexy followed by the use of biological glue, only one (4.5%) presented bleeding in the surgical postoperative. Patients do not have any other complications and pain in the postoperative period. The median (IQR) operation duration was 55 (12) min and the median (IQR) length of hospital stay after surgery was 3 (2) days.

Conclusion:

Patients with high risk of bleeding submitted to stapled hemorrhoidopexy followed by the use of biological glue presented very low rates of bleeding in the postoperative period.
