Thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node: causes, symptoms, treatment

Thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node or acute hemorrhoids - this is often found in adults, a disease caused by the formation of external blood clots or internal nodes with subsequent loss.

Patients often neglect health care in this situation, which leads to complications. Although in the early stages of thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node is easily treatable.

In the chronic form of hemorrhoids, thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node is one of the most common complications in the period of exacerbation. This requires immediate medical intervention, otherwise, thrombosed hemorrhoids can cause sepsis or paraproctitis.

The severity of thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node



  • The first degree of severity: there is a congestion of venous blood in the nodes, because of which there is no outflow of blood, and blood clots are formed. There is a violation of blood microcirculation. The formed thrombuses cause painful sensations, but the inflammation is not observed. Often near the anus, small cones appear, accompanied by redness near the anus, itching, burning, which brings significant discomfort.

  • With the second degree of severity, an inflammatory process can occur, in the absence of proper treatment. The soreness of the knots becomes higher, besides this, their sensitivity is observed, the body temperature can increase. The pain becomes more intense, the knots and swelling increase.

  • Thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node of the third degree of severity is accompanied by the transition of the inflammatory process to adjacent tissues, capturing the entire groin area. Edema becomes even greater, necrosis of the nodes may develop.

  • Treatment of thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node



    Surgical intervention is the simplest and most effective method of treatment. The operation is carried out under local anesthesia, and it lasts no more than ten minutes. The operation consists of a five-millimeter section, removal of the clot from the node. A thrombus can be cut along with the node. After a week, the patient does not bother. However, the operation can not guarantee the re-occurrence of a thrombus, it does not appear only in the place where the operation was performed. That is why surgical removal of the thrombus is used only if the disease is neglected.

    Treatment of thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node may consist of the use of suppositories, ointments, and baths. However, a positive result will appear no earlier than a month. For the prevention of recurrent thrombosis, it is necessary to abandon the acute products, alcohol, and also to reduce physical activity and walking.

    Many people with the appearance of symptoms simply feel embarrassed to consult a doctor, as in our society, this is considered ridiculous. However, one should not be embarrassed, because a prolonged disease is fraught with complications or the acquisition of a chronic form.
