CSA Vein Center
receives accreditation by the IAC:
CSA is the first vein practice in Northeast Massachusetts to be fully accredited as a Certified Vein Center by the IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission).
A minimally invasive surgical approach recently introduced in the United
States, called Procedure for Prolapse and
Hemorrhoids (PPH), may help patients recover from
hemorrhoid surgery faster with less pain when compared to conventional
Clinical trial results comparing Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids to conventional hemorrhoid surgery have shown that patients who have the PPH procedure may experience:
- less pain
- a quicker recovery period
- less overall complications
- need for less postoperative pain medication
Before and After PPH & Rectal Prolapse Repair
The Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (PPH) procedure reduces the prolapsed mucosa and restores anal tissue to its original anatomical position. This hemorrhoid operation results in less pain than traditional procedures because it is performed above the dentate, or “pain” line inside the anal canal. Traditional procedures are performed below the dentate line, affecting many sensitive nerve endings. PPH surgery patients have been shown to experience less pain and a faster recovery, i.e. return to normal activities, such as work, than patients who undergo a traditional repair operation.
How PPH works?
Using a hemorrhoidal circular stapler device, the procedure for prolapse
and hemorrhoids procedure essentially "lifts up," or repositions the mucosa,
or anal canal tissue, and reduces blood flow to the internal hemorrhoids.
These internal hemorrhoids, then, typically shrink within four to six weeks
after the procedure. The PPH procedure results in less pain than traditional
hemorrhoidectomy procedures because it is performed above the "pain" line,
or dentate line inside the anal canal. The advantage is that this hemorrhoid
treatment method affects few nerve endings, while traditional
hemorrhoidectomy procedures are performed below the dentate line, affecting
many sensitive nerve endings.
