Course description:

Transanal Haemorrhoidal De-arterialisation with the addition of a mucopexy/plication has been gaining popularity as a minimally invasive haemorrhoidal treatment for all grades of haemorrhoids. THD utilises a specially modified proctoscope containing a purpose built Doppler probe to identify the distal branches of the superior rectal artery and subsequently ligate them. This, when combined with the mucopexy/plication, means the haemorrhoidal tissue will be de-arterialised and restored to a more natural position. This is done in a single surgical procedure without the need for excising any tissue.

Aims and Objectives:
  • To become familiar with a new surgical technique for the treatment of haemorrhoids, its indication, advantages and limitation.
  • To review and discuss the physiopathology of haemorrhoidal disease.
  • To discuss the rationale of the THD and teach the surgical technique to senior surgical trainees and consultants.
  • At the end of the course, the delegates should have rehearsed the physiopathology of haemorrhoidal disease and learnt how to perform THD, as well as its indications and limitations.
Target audience:

Consultant Colorectal Surgeons, Senior Registrars, Associate Specialists
