Rubber Band Ligation
'RBL' is the most effective 'office' treatment for haemorrhoids. The haemorrhoid is grasped and encircled by a tiny white rubber band. This occludes the blood supply.
Performed in the office to assess conditions, including haemorrhoids, tumours, proctitis (inflammation of the rectum) and prolapse. They can compliment a colonoscopy.
Manometry measures pressures and electrical activity of the anal sphincter muscle and the sensation within the rectum. It takes one hour and slight discomfort may be experienced.
