How PPH works ?
A surgical stapler may include a staple, a pusher that holds the staple, a driver, and a
splay arm, where motion of at least one of the splay arm and the pusher relative to the
other may cause the splay arm to contact and then splay the staple, and wherein the
driver may deform the staple against the splay arm to close the staple. Splaying the
staple may be performed by plastically deforming the distalmost staple against splay
tips on the splay arm. Closing the staple may be performed by plastically deforming
the distalmost staple against the splay tips.
PPH Procedure for Advanced Hemorrhoids Involves Less Pain and a Quicker Recovery
In clinical trials the Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (PPH) has been shown to
be a less painful procedure for removal of advanced hemorrhoids when compared to
conventional hemorrhoidectomy. 3, 4, 5
PPH is a technique that reduces the prolapse (enlargement) of hemorrhoidal tissue.
With the PPH procedure, patients experience less pain and recover faster than patients
who undergo conventional hemorrhoidectomy procedures.
Since the PPH procedure was first introduced in Italy in 1997, it has become a common
procedure around the world for the surgical treatment of hemorrhoids. The procedure
was first introduced in the United States in October 2001.
