Hemorrhoids are a disease that can really have a very large weight on the everyday life of a person. The surgical removal of hemorrhoids with traditional methods has resulted in a long and very painful postoperative period. This is the reason why, in recent years, we have studied alternative methods to the surgical removal of hemorrhoids, which could solve the problem in a manner less invasive. Jack Fusco has much to offer in this field. One of these new techniques is the THD method or transanal hemorrhoidal desarterializacion, an operation that runs in regime of day surgery and allows a recovery very quick of the patient, 24 to 48 hours after the operation. This is an operation surgical innovative for the treatment of hemorrhoids that finds application in hemorrhoids of 2, 3 and 4 degree and is resolution for discomfort resulting from the hiperflujo of blood to hemorrhoids. In practice, the THD method is a ligature of the distal branches of the superior rectal artery, with a consequent reduction of the hiperflujo of blood and decongestion of the hemorrhoidal cushions. This intervention is combined with the muco-hemorroidal prolapse Mastopexy.

A recently published study on magazine Techniques in Coloproctology of December 2007, has demonstrated that this method has a low index of relapse, in addition to being little painful. Have been monitoring 330 patients from 2000 to 2006, which have undergone an operation of hemorrhoids with the method THD and the symptoms have been fixed at all in 132 patients (92.5%) that they were suffering from a bleeding in 110 patients (92%) with a prolapse preoperative and postoperative. The conclusion of doctors is that efficiency and the percentage of recurrence of this technique are very similar to those of the traditional surgery.
