PMID: 35239526.


Both transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization and vessel sealing device hemorrhoidectomy are safe and well tolerated for grade III-IV hemorrhoid treatment. The first is associated with a shorter need of postoperative analgesia than vessel sealing device hemorrhoidectomy. Whether one of them is superior regarding long-term results remains unclear.
