The acute strangulation of internal hemorrhoids and the thrombosis of external hemorrhoids are both debilitating and painful conditions which require immediate treatment in order to minimize morbidity and reduce the length of inactivity. In selected cases, urgent surgical treatment, performed within 72 hours of presentation, prevents the negative economic and psychological effects of a prolonged recovery (which is often the case of conservative management), and limits the necessity for surgical intervention at a later date.

Abstract

The acute strangulation of internal hemorrhoids and the thrombosis of external hemorrhoids are both debilitating and painful conditions which require immediate treatment in order to minimize morbidity and reduce the length of inactivity. In selected cases, urgent surgical treatment, performed within 72 hours of presentation, prevents the negative economic and psychological effects of a prolonged recovery (which is often the case of conservative management), and limits the necessity for surgical intervention at a later date.
