Hemorrhoidal Banding

Uses

Hemorrhoidal banding is a procedure to treat bleeding internal hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are enlarged veins that occur in the end of the rectum just above the anal canal.

Bleeding is often precipitated by constipation, straining to pass hard stool, or heavy lifting.

Procedure

During the procedure, small rubber bands are placed on the enlarged veins. This eliminates blood flow to the hemorrhoid, causing it to dry up and fall off after several days.

Hemorrhoidal banding is typically safe and well tolerated, however the procedure may occasionally be complicated by local pain or bleeding.
