Foods to help when you have Piles
Haemorrhoids are uncommon in patients with Crohn's disease. They usually become symptomatic when accompanied by diarrhoea. Conservative treatment must include control of bowel function, warm sitz-baths, and topical medications. Usually these non-invasive measures are successful. If symptoms persist, rubber-band ligation might be helpful. In rare cases, if symptoms are severe, and the rectum is spared from illness, selective surgical haemor-rhoidectomy may be successful 28 . Most surgeons believe that surgery should be avoided in the treatment of haemorrhoid diseases in Crohn's patients. In a publication, Jeffery et al 31 reported the results of 21 patients with Crohn's disease presenting with active haemorrhoids that were treated surgically. Postsurgical complications, including sepsis, strictures, fistulae and unhealed wounds, occurred in ten patients, and six patients ultimately required a proctectomy.
Although the curiously named familial rectal pain syndrome is without doubt very rare, we have had clinical contact with three families and made or seen ictal video-recordings of three children and one adult, supporting the suggestion that this unpleasant disorder is also underdiagnosed (75). Familial rectal pain syndrome is dominantly inherited, but apparently sporadic cases occur. The presenting feature is dramatic neonatal seizures. Schubert and Cracco (76) thought these might
The equipment that is required will depend upon the nature of the examination. The clinician will usually have a stethoscope, pen-torch and measuring tape. Other equipment such as an ophthalmoscope, auroscope. sphygmomanometer, tendon hammer, tuning fork, cotton wool. pins, disposable wooden spatula to use as a tongue depressor, disposable gloves, lubricant jelly and proctoscope, and facilities for obtaining blood samples and for testing urine should lie readily available. An accurate weighing machine and height scalcs (preferably a Harpenden stadiometer) should be standard equipment on a ward, outpatient department and a General Practice surgery. When visiting the patient's home the doctor will require a fairly wide range of similar equipment.
Indications for flexible colonoscopy include haematochezia, chronic diarrhoea and abdominal and rectal pain. Moreover, this procedure is necessary in patients in the active disease stage who do not respond to medical therapy. Also, it may help those with atypical symptoms. As to colonoscopy during pregnancy, few data are available because of the limited casuistics although generally it should be reserved exclusively for patients where the diagnostic benefit is higher than the risk. Endoscopic examination of the superior intestinal tract is usually used less frequently than other procedures even although many studies emphasise good tolerability both for the expectant mother and the foetus as well as its high diagnostic value in the case of gastrointestinal bleeding.
Most patients with Crohn's disease present with weight loss, abdominal pain and diarrhoea. An isolated anal lesion is the first manifestation in 5 of patients. Most will develop intestinal symptoms, sometimes many years later 1 . The spectrum of anal complaints is great. Fissures and oedematous skin tags are most common. In the general population most anal fissures are located in the posterior midline. In patients with Crohn's disease, fissures may occur eccentrically. They are deep, indolent and rarely painful unless an abscess is present. Skin tags are usually asymptomatic, but if they become painful or interfere with anal hygiene, they can be excised. They also are an excellent source for biopsy specimens for the presence of granulomata. Other common clinical manifestations include anal stricture, ulceration, complex fistulae, abscesses and finally faecal incontinence. Haemorrhoids are not a common feature of anal Crohn's disease. Management of these varied clinical manifestations...
Haemorrhoids are not palpable unless thrombosed similarly, normal seminal vesicles cannot be felt. In patients with chronic constipation the rectum is often loaded with faeces. Carcinoma of the lower rectum is palpable as a mucosal irregularity. An obstructing carcinoma of the upper rectum may produce ballooning of the empty rectal cavity below. Faecal masses are commonly palpable they should be movable and can he indented. Metastases or colonic tumours within the pelvis may be mistaken for faeces and vice versa. Lateraliscd tenderness suggests pelvic peritonitis, e.g. right-sided tenderness in an appendix abscess.
Incompetence of the internal anal sphincter is usually related to a surgical or mechanical factor or perianal disease, such as prolapsing hemorrhoids. Disorders of the neuromuscular mechanisms of the external sphincter and pelvic floor muscles may also result from surgical or mechanical trauma, such as during childbirth.
The anastomosis is checked for leaks by filling the pelvis with saline solution, occluding the small bowel lumen several centimeters above the anastomosis applying a bowel clamp and then using a proctoscope to insufflate air into the rectum. No air bubbles should appear.
The interior of the intestine can be observed with various endoscopes named for the specific area in which they are used, such as proctoscope (rectum), sigmoidoscope (sigmoid colon) (Fig. 12-6), colonoscope (colon). Other types of obstruction include intussusception (Fig. 12-8), slipping of a part of the intestine into a part below it volvulus, twisting of the intestine (see Fig. 12-8) and ileus, intestinal obstruction often caused by lack of peristalsis. Hemorrhoids are varicose veins in the rectum associated with pain, bleeding, and, in some cases, prolapse of the rectum.

Two major structures ought to be identified and avoided intraopera-tively The left ureter and the presacral veins. As in any sigmoid and rectal resection, the left ureter is at risk for injury if not properly visualized and retracted out of the operating field. The left ureter should be immediately visualized upon opening the right peritoneum and creating a window underneath the superior hemorrhoidal vessels. When the left ureter is identified, it should be dissected downward away from the operating field together with the gonadal vessels. Another area where the ureter could be injured is at the level of the left pelvic rim if the incision at the peritoneal reflexion on the left is taken too laterally. It is mandatory when incising the peritoneum on the left side of the pelvis that the surgeon retracts the rectum to the right and the first assistant incises the peritoneum medially. At that level, the ureter is usually lateral and it is critical to dissect in the correct plane. A...
A breakdown in the valves of the veins in combination with a chronic dilatation of these vessels results in varicose veins. These appear twisted and swollen under the skin, most commonly in the legs. Contributing factors include heredity, obesity, prolonged standing, and pregnancy, which increases pressure in the pelvic veins. This condition can impede blood flow and lead to edema, thrombosis, hemorrhage, or ulceration. Treatment includes the wearing of elastic stockings and, in some cases, surgical removal of the varicosities, after which collateral circulation is established. A varicose vein in the rectum or anal canal is referred to as a hemorrhoid.
Rectal prolapse is a rare disease but can usually be cured by surgery. Many abdominal and perineal approaches have been described in the past. Currently, abdominal surgery with some type of rectopexy plus or minus sigmoid resection is the most common abdominal operation to treat rectal prolapse. Because different opinions about the best available procedure are well known and the debate is unsettled, this chapter only discusses whether the laparoscopic approach is beneficial compared with the conventional approach if an abdominal procedure is chosen to treat the prolapse.
The literature databases MEDLINE, EMBASE, CancerLit, and the Cochrane Central Controlled Trials Register were searched for RCTs for the years 1991-2004. The MeSh-terms colon*, colectomy, proctectomy*, intestine-large*, colonic neoplasm, rectal neoplasm, and laparosc* were used for the search and 37 publications found. RCTs that contained only patients with benign disease (i.e., Crohn's disease or rectal prolapse) (n 2) were excluded from further analysis, as well as publications that gave only laboratory data without any clinical outcome (n 3). Furthermore, trials using any form of pseudo-randomization, patients included in multiple publications (n 8), or data given only as abstracts (n 3) were also excluded from the analysis. Laparoscopic or laparoscopic-assisted colorectal cancer resections or abdominal wall lift technique were included. Hand-assisted lapa-roscopic procedures were not included in the analysis.
Persistent diarrhea is quite uncommon and may differ considerably from acute TD with respect to etiology and risk factors. Approximately 15 of those affected experience vomiting and 2-10 may have diarrhea accompanied by fever or bloody stools or both. Travelers may experience more than one attack of TD during a single trip. TD is rarely life-threatening.
First do no harm is a rule as old as the practice of medicine itself. Equally important is the rule that the dignity of the patient must be preserved. Physicians who fail to abide by these rules may find themselves defendants in indefensible lawsuits. For example, there is the case of an educated woman who presented to her physician with a chief complaint of rectal bleeding. A nurse practitioner diagnosed a resolving external hemorrhoid without performing a rectal examination or any other diagnostic procedure. The patient returned 1 year later with the same complaint. The physician saw her. The same diagnosis was made. It is documented in the record that the patient requested sigmoidoscopy. Her request was denied. Several months later, a gastroenterologist diagnosed rectal carcinoma. The case was settled in favor of the plaintiff.
The cause of this important symptom should always be determined. Though frequently due to haemorrhoids or an anal fissure, these are so commonplace that their presence in a patient with rectal bleeding should not lead to the assumption of cause and effect. The differential diagnosis includes colorectal carcinoma, ulcerative colitis, infective colitis and complicated diverticular disease (Table 5.17). Bleeding from the anal canal is bright red it is usually clearly separate from the faeces and often seen only on the toilet paper. 1 laemorrhoidal bleeding may be profuse and splash the toilet bowl and or continue following defecation. Bleeding from an anal fissure is usually associated wilh
V. fluvialis has been implicated in outbreaks and sporadic cases of diarrhea. In a study conducted during a 9-month period (1976-1977), samples from 518 of the 10,674 patients with diarrhea showed the presence of the pathogen (25). Most of the patients from whom the pathogen was isolated were infants, children, and young adults. The stools sampled during this outbreak had an average of a million organisms per mL. Other symptoms associated with watery diarrhea in 34 of the patients include vomiting (97 ), abdominal pain (75 ), dehydration (67 ), and fever (35 ). About 75 of these patients had pus cells and erythrocytes in their stools. Levine et al. (26) reported that 86 of the patients with gastroenteritis had bloody stools. Presence of red blood in stools of a 1-month-old infant has also been observed (27). Gastroenteritis in an infant younger than 1 month has been
Gastrointestinal symptoms are also common ictal phenomena. These include flatulence, epigastric rising sensations, borbyrigmy, nausea, and emesis (52-56). These symptoms are frequently isolated in children. Ictal emesis, in particular, has been described from the insula, the frontal operculum, and in benign occipital epilepsy. Ictus emeticus can occur without impairment of awareness and in isolation (57). Rectal pain and burning may occur in an epileptic seizure and can be triggered by a bowel movement (58).
The histological diagnosis might be difficult. Occasional confusion with highly differentiated sarcoma may exist 75 . Transformation to sarcoma is extremely rare 76 . In FAP patients, 50 of DTs are intra-abdominal, 40 occur in the abdominal wall, and 10 on the extremities. Among the intraabdominal DTs, 85-100 are located in the mesentery and 15 in the retroperitoneum 62, 67 . Desmoid tumors often present as a slow growing , non-tender, abdominal mass, although rapid growth has been reported 77 and they rarely regress spontaneously 66, 78 . Intra-abdominal DTs are often asymptomatic. The most common symptom is abdominal pain, which occurs in only about one third of patients. Discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and hematochezia are less common. Desmoid tumors may cause small-bowel obstruction and hydronephrosis as a result of intestinal or ureteric compression 79 . Fistula between the tumor and the ureters or intestine 80, 81 , abscess formation or intestinal perforation with...
The normal bowel habit varies between several evacuations per day to one every 3 days or so. Changes in bowel habit may be the first symptom of serious underlying disease. Constipation may be used by the patient to describe hard pellety stools, infrequent defecation or excessive straining at stool with difficulty in evacuation (dyschezia). Similarly, diarrhoea may be used to describe frequent defecation, loose or fluid stools, urgency of defecation, Ihe persistent desire to defecate or faecal incontinence. Tenesmus, the feeling of incomplete rectal evacuation with a persistent desire to defecate, is common in infective colitis, rectal carcinoma, rectal prolapse and the irritable bowel syndrome.
