Acupuncture treatment of hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids is a common anorectal disease, treatment is very complex, because of its pathological features, resulting in its repeated attacks more difficult to cure. Hemorrhoids is a common disease located in the anal region, any age can be the disease, but with age, the incidence rate increased gradually. Hemorrhoids are pathological hypertrophy of anal cushions. Hemorrhoids anal zigzag line as the boundary is divided into internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids. Symptoms of external hemorrhoids itching to pain based. The places hemorrhoids and bleeding hemorrhoids prolapse after they dominated.
About the cause of hemorrhoids There are two main theories. The first is the doctrine of varicose veins, hemorrhoids is that the lower rectal mucosa and anal bolus venous plexus congestion, expansion and buckling under the skin formed. However, currently the most widely accepted theory is that the anal cushions down doctrine that hemorrhoids anal canal was originally part of the normal anatomy, namely vascular cushions are above the dentate line and ring the cavernous tissue with 1.5cm. Only anal cushion tissue and associated with abnormal symptoms, hemorrhoids can be called only in need of treatment, the treatment aims to relieve symptoms rather than eliminate hemorrhoids body. Many predisposing factors of hemorrhoids, constipation which, long-term drinking, eating a lot of spicy food and sedentary for a long is a major incentive.
Hemorrhoids occur in different parts of the divided internal hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids, mixed hemorrhoids. In the anal skin and rectal mucosa junction there is a visible jagged lines called the dentate line of the anal canal. In internal hemorrhoids above the dentate line is, below the dentate line of external hemorrhoids can be divided into connective tissue external hemorrhoids, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, thrombotic external hemorrhoids; both internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids is mixed hemorrhoids, internal hemorrhoids is through the venous plexus corresponding external hemorrhoids integration, namely the upper and lower venous plexus anastomosis, mixed hemorrhoids prolapse outside the anus, when was plum-shaped, it called an annular hemorrhoids, sphincter if they are incarcerated, incarcerated hemorrhoid formation.
Causes of hemorrhoids
1, the genetic relationship: congenital vein wall weakness, reduced resistance, can not tolerate intravascular pressure, thus gradually expanded.
2, local irritation and diet: anal cold, heat, constipation, diarrhea, excessive drinking and eating spicy food, can stimulate the anus and rectum, hemorrhoid venous plexus congestion, affecting venous return, resulting in venous wall resistance power drops.
3, professional relationships: people long standing or sitting for long-term weight-bearing long journey, affecting venous return, slow blood flow to the pelvic and abdominal organ congestion, caused by excessive filling hemorrhoid veins, vein wall tension decreased, easily bleeding blood vessels dilate, because of lack of exercise, decreased bowel, stool slow down or habitual constipation, can stimulate the oppression and veins, so that local congestion and blood reflux disorder, caused by increased pressure inside hemorrhoid veins, vein wall resistance is reduced.
4, anal infection: hemorrhoid venous plexus due to acute and chronic infection inflammation, fibrosis of the vein wall elastic tissue gradually becomes weaker, less resistance, caused varicose expanded, plus other reasons, varicose veins gradually increased, to generate block hemorrhoids .
Clinical manifestations. Blood in the stool: painless intermittent spotting its characteristics, but also internal hemorrhoids or mixed hemorrhoid common early symptoms of blood in the stool, hemorrhoids do not cause bleeding. Light mostly on the stool blood then blood, a severe jet-like bleeding, blood in the stool can often stop on their own after a few days it is very important for diagnosis. If long-term repeated bleeding, anemia clinical is not uncommon, and bleeding disorders should be differentiated. Falling pain: pain fall is mainly manifested symptoms of external hemorrhoids, internal hemorrhoids or mixed hemorrhoid prolapse when incarcerated, edema infection, necrosis, often resulting in severe pain fall. Hemorrhoids prolapse: hemorrhoids prolapse is the main symptoms of advanced hemorrhoids, hemorrhoids body increases due to late, when the gradual separation of the muscle is pushed outside the anus defecating. Only light in the stool prolapse, and after self-reply. When severe abdominal pressure that is is a little anal prolapse, abdominal pressure such as coughing and other travel increased slightly block hemorrhoids prolapse can seriously affect the normal work and life. Itching: advanced hemorrhoids prolapsed hemorrhoids and anal sphincter relaxation block, often discharge flow due to stimulate secretions often have itching around the anus discomfort, and even skin eczema, the patient is extremely uncomfortable. Depending on the symptoms and the degree of harm to human health hemorrhoids can be divided into three phases. Ⅰ period: no pain, mainly for blood, increased secretions, mainly itching. Ⅱ period: there is blood in the stool, hemorrhoids prolapse with defecation, but it can also accept their own. Stage Ⅲ (also known as late) hemorrhoids prolapse anal estuary or estuary each defecation anus, can not also accept their own, must return to Satisfy. Hemorrhoids light gives the normal inconvenience of life, severe health effects, such as blood in the stool course of time, can cause varying degrees of poor, even hemorrhagic shock, life-threatening, hemorrhoids necrosis, severe infection, can cause the body through the blood system infection, serious consequences, thus suffering from hemorrhoids for a positive response.
