Benefits of HAE

Hemorrhoid Artery Embolization: A minimally invasive treatment for hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are a common problem that affects millions of people worldwide. They are swollen veins in the anal canal or rectum. Hemorrhoids can cause a variety of symptoms, including pain, itching, bleeding, and a feeling of fullness in the rectum.

There are a number of different treatments available for hemorrhoids. Some of the most common treatments include rubber band ligation, sclerotherapy, and surgery.

Hemorrhoid Artery Embolization (HAE) is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to treat hemorrhoids. The procedure is performed by an interventional radiologist, who is a doctor who specializes in minimally invasive procedures using imaging guidance.

During HAE, a small catheter is inserted into an artery in the groin or wrist. The catheter is then guided to the arteries that supply blood to the hemorrhoids. Small particles or coils are then injected into the arteries to block the blood flow to the hemorrhoids. This causes the hemorrhoids to shrink and the symptoms to improve.

HAE is a safe and effective treatment for hemorrhoids. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis and does not require general anesthesia. Patients may experience some mild discomfort after the procedure, but this usually goes away within a few days.

Here are some of the benefits of HAE:

  • It is a minimally invasive procedure, which means that there is less risk of complications than with surgery.
  • It can be performed on an outpatient basis, so you can go home the same day.
  • The recovery time is typically short, with most patients able to return to their normal activities within a few days.
  • HAE is a safe and effective treatment for hemorrhoids.

If you are considering HAE for the treatment of your hemorrhoids, talk to your doctor. They can help you decide if HAE is the right treatment for you.

Here are some additional benefits of HAE:

  • It is a less painful procedure than surgery.
  • There is less risk of bleeding and infection after HAE than after surgery.
  • HAE is a good option for people who are not good candidates for surgery.

Here are some of the risks of HAE:

  • Pain
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Recurrence of hemorrhoids

If you are considering HAE, it is important to weigh the benefits and risks of the procedure with your doctor at USA Hemorrhoid Centers.
