Abstract

Haemorrhoid cryosurgery in 528 cases operated since the University of Genoa Colon and Rectum Diseases Centre opened is illustrated. It is shown that the complete success of this technique is dependent on careful preoperative assessment, adoption of a suitable method, and proper post-operative management. An analysis of these three parameters is followed by a description of the immediate and 1-yr follow-up results observed in the reported series. The soundness of the method is asserted. Stress is laid on the fact that cryosurgery offers a valid alternative to conventional surgical methods, provided its indications are strictly adhered to.
