Transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization
versus stapled hemorrhoidectomy in the treatment of hemorrhoids: A PRISMA-compliant updated meta-analysis of randomized control trials.
Medical treatment of these inoperable patients and the patients with palliative surgery included diazoxide (n = 4), somatostatin analogues (n = 5), radiation therapy of metastases (n = 2), 5-fluorouracilstreptozotocin (n = 3), sunitinib (n = 1), doxorubicin (n = 1), doxorubicin-dacarbazine (n =1), interferon alpha (n = 3), peroral corticosteroids (n = 4), dearterialization
and embolization of liver arteries (n = 1), chemoembolization of liver metastases (n =1), resection and thermoablation of liver metastases (n =1), and superselective embolization of a branch of the gastroduodenal artery (n =1).

first described the Doppler guided Transanal Hemorrhoidal Dearterialization (THD) procedure, it has gained acceptance as a popular non-excisional hemorrhoidectomy operation.
Transanal Hemorrhoid Dearterialization (THD) and mucopexy is the newest addition to a surgeon's repertoire.
In order to minimize complications and postoperative pain, several less invasive procedures have been described and two of them are reported with promising results: PPH/stapled hemorrhoidopexy and Transanal Hemorrhoid Dearterialization (THD)/Doplerguided hemorrhoidal artery ligation (DGHAL).
 and surgical procedures like over sewing/ligation of varices, duodenal dearterialization
and stapling, duodenectomy or gastroduodenectomy.

gets patients back to their normal activities faster than does the procedure for prolapse and hemorrhoids, and appears to be associated with fewer serious complications, Dr.
