    Mlakar, Boštjan, 1972- ; Košorok, Pavle
    Background The aim of this report is to describe our experience with stapled haemorrhoidopexy as a day surgery procedure. Methods From January 2000 to January 2003, a total of 214 patients with ... third- and fourth-degree haemorrhoids underwent stapled haemorrhoidopexy under spinal anaesthesia. We analysed early postoperative complications and long-term results. Patients were followed for 4-36 months (mean, 22 months). Only 3 patients (1%) were hospitalised. The long-term complications were analysed by means of a mailed questionnaire. Results Minor bleeding at wiping after defecation was observed by 9% of patients and minor haemorrhoidal prolapse by 8% of patients. Pain after defecation was reported by 6% of patients and anal stenosis occurred in 2% of them. Faecal urgency was reported by 3% of patients with previously unknown incontinence problems. Conclusion According to our experience, stapledhaemorrhoidopexy can be safely performed as a day surgery procedure.
