Doppler-guided hemorrhoidal laser procedure consists of sutureless closure of terminal branches of the superior hemorrhoidal artery by laser energy. Clinical results of patients treated with this procedure were analyzed at the completion of 2-year follow-up. Primary endpoint was resolution of symptoms and secondary endpoints were recurrence rate, type of recurrences, re-operation rate, and potential predictive factors for failure.
