[Music] causes of hemorrhoids researchers propose that degradation or disintegration of the supporting tissues of the anal cushions causes hemorrhoids to develop there are some contributing factors for hemorrhoids including being overweight our our regularly lifting heavy objects aging pregnancy and giving birth heredity constipation or chronic diarrhea faulty bowel function due to overuse of laxatives or enemas spending excessive periods of time on the toilet an increase in intra-abdominal pressure during pregnancy or when constipated and sitting on the toilet for a prolonged period of time while straining our major contributing factors for the development of hemorrhoids weakening of supporting tissue as a result of aging and genetics may also serve as another cause many dietary factors including a low fiber diet spicy foods and alcohol intake have been implicated as possible causes of hemorrhoids symptoms as well but the research proving this is inconsistent it has also been published that Caucasians of higher socioeconomic class were afflicted with a greater frequency of hemorrhoids but this data may be limited because it’s based on people’s healthcare seeking practices conventional treatment for hemorrhoids when you go to see a doctor for enlarged hemorrhoids depending on the severity of your symptoms there are a number of examinations your doctor may choose to perform in order to make a diagnosis doctors typically do a digital rectal examination first most of the patients suffering from hemorrhoids have their symptoms alleviated through diet therapy fiber supplements hemorrhoid cream and medical treatments such as sclerotherapy rubber band ligation and infrared coagulation one sclerotherapy sclerotherapy as a procedure that involves injecting a chemical to sclerosant into a vein to destroy it the sclerosant is used to damage the innermost lining of the vessel which results in a clot that blocks the blood circulation in the vein over time the vessel turns into scar tissue and fades away to rubber band ligation this procedure is used to remove a hemorrhoid with a rubber band three infrared coagulation infrared coagulation as a procedure that’s used for internal hemorrhoids the doctor uses a device that creates an intense beam of infrared light to cause scar tissue and cut off the let’s apply to the hemorrhoid when the hemorrhoid dies a scar forms on the anal canal below the lower rectum and the scar tissue holds nearby veins in place so they can’t bulge into the anal canal for hemorrhoid surgery surgical intervention is now less frequently performed than in the past but it can be considered for patients with acute complications of hemorrhoidal disease or for those who were unable to treat hemorrhoids with other measures surgery for hemorrhoids known as a hemorrhoidectomy involves removing the hemorrhoid or the clot with a small incision having a hemorrhoidectomy as generally an outpatient procedure and involves a two to three week recovery period having hemorrhoid surgery can seem frightening but it is a relatively minor procedure that doctors recommend when all other treatment methods have failed [Music]
