Introduction: The traditional Milligan-Morgan and the Ferguson operations are still the most used for patients with symptomatic haemorrhoids of III and IV degrees. Nowadays LigaSure is used as a new technique to decrease the complications resulting from conventional hemorroidectomy. In this study, patients were investigated on the basis of the following main outcomes: mean operative time, postoperative pain (score and duration), bleeding loss in operation, early (within the first month after surgery) and late (after the first month) complications in conventional as well as LigaSure hemorroidectomy. Methods: it is an analytical study conducted on 101 patients aged 19–80 years old of both males and females with III and IV-degree hemorrhoids who had been gone to Shahid Sadoughi hospital between 2011 and 2012. Forty-three patients were treated by conventional diathermy and fifty -eight by LigaSure. Patients received analgesic administration for about 24 hours after operations and, after hospital discharge. In fact, analgesia was administered until 5 days (three times a day). All patients were required to record pain from the first postoperative day until the 28th postoperative day on a self-administered NAS scale (0–10). Results: Patients completed a questionnaire face to face one week, one month, six, and twelve months after the operation. The mean operative time, bleeding loss in operation and return to work were significantly shorter in LS group, whereas there were no difference in hospital stay period, anal stenosis, healing time of wound and retention of urinary. A statistically significant difference in pain score was observed three and four days after the operation. Finally, patients with LigaSure haemorrhoidectomy recovered from pain earlier than those with conventional diathermy. Conclusions: although LigaSure proposes additional costs, it is an effective instrument in order to treat hemorrhoids of III and IV degrees.
