Introduction: The "Milligan-Morgan" technique is considered as the golden standard for the surgical treatment of hemorrhoid disease . However, modification aim to improve patient’s outcome and reduce the number of postoperative complications and faster rehabilitation of patients has been and remains subject to many studies. The choice of technique depends on various factors, including the severity of hemorrhoids, the surgeons expertise, and the individual patients needs and preferences.
Aim: The study aimed to compare the outcomes of patients who underwent the Milligan-Morgan technique alone versus those who had the Milligan-Morgan technique combined with left lateral sphincterotomy. The researchers likely evaluated several factors, including postoperative pain, wound healing, complications, recurrence rates, and patient satisfaction. By comparing the two groups, the study aimed to determine whether the addition of left lateral sphincterotomy provided any additional benefits in terms of improved outcomes, reduced postoperative pain, or better overall patient satisfaction compared to the Milligan-Morgan technique alone.
Material and Methods: In this study, 152 patients diagnosed with hemorrhoidal prolapse were divided into two groups: Group A, consisting of 92 patients who underwent the "Milligan-Morgan" technique without left lateral sphincterotomy (MM), and Group B, consisting of 60 patients who underwent the "Milligan-Morgan" technique with left lateral sphincterotomy (MMS). We compared the data related to pain level and complications, including postoperative pain, wound healing, complications, recurrence rates, and patient satisfaction, during the hospitalization period and six months after surgery between the two groups.
Results: The study indicated several findings regarding the comparison of the "Milligan-Morgan" technique without left lateral sphincterotomy (Group A) and with left lateral sphincterotomy (Group B) for patients with hemorrhoidal prolapse. Here is a summary of the findings:
Complications: Up to six months after surgery, there were 8 patients with anal stricture, which did not reach statistical significance (P = 0.14). However, Group A had a higher number of complications, including: postoperative pain, wound healing issues, complications, and recurrence rates compared to Group B. Group B had a lower incidence of complications (14%) compared to Group A (37%).
Conclusion: The addition of left lateral sphincterotomy to open hemorrhoidectomy in patients with prolapsed hemorrhoids offers several benefits: postoperative pain reduction, faster wound healing, preserved urinary continence, reduction in postoperative complications.
