Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Haemorrhoidal Disease (HD) is the fourth leading outpatient digestive system diagnosis in the United States.

Although HD is one of the oldest and most studied diseases, there are some special conditions that are rare and difficult to manage. For example, the prevalence of HD is higher in pregnancy than in non-pregnant women, but insufficient data exist on the safety of anti-haemorrhoidal treatment in pregnancy. The latter dilemma is also reflected in the treatment of other conditions associated with HD such as inflammatory bowel disease, coagulopathies or elderly patients.

Furthermore, non-excisional or excisional surgical treatment for II–IV degree HD can often provoke several complications that deeply modify the patient's quality of life.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to demonstrate the state of the art regarding some of the rare conditions and post-operative complications related to HD.

In this Special Issue, we are encouraging experienced colleagues to submit original research articles, case studies, and review articles regarding special conditions and post-operative complications in HD.
