AbstractHaemorrhoids are one of the most common benign anorectal problem worldwide. Various techniques of haemorrhoidectomy have been reported in an attempt to find the ideal operation with low morbidity and good clinical results. Open haemorrhoidectomy (Milligan-Morgan) is a widely-used and accepted procedure. A total of 77 consecutive patients between the age group of 20 and 85 years, diagnosed to have grade III or IV haemorrhoids were included in the study, divided into 2 groups, Group 1 undergoing Open haemorrhoidectomy (41 patients) and Group 2 undergoing Stapler haemorrhoidectomy (36 patients). The mean hospital stay for patients with stapler haemorrhoidectomy was 2.4±0.8 days in comparison to the open group where the mean hospital stay was 5±2.6 days (P-value<0.001). There was significant difference in complication between the two groups, stapler group having lesser post op complications during the study period. The stapler group patients returned to normal activity significantly early.
