Hemorrhoid surgery is indic Hemorrhoid surgery (piles) is surgery that is done to treat the veins that have been swollen or expanded around the anus. Hemorrhoid surgery is indicated when the patient has itching in the anus, anal bleeding, pain or gore. Piles operation can be carried out using different techniques, the most common is the hemorrhoidectomy, which involves removing hemorrhoids and leave the area sterile gauze to slow the bleeding. Another method is stapled hemorrhoidopexy (also called PTT or Longo method) which involves inserting a mechanical seaming anal rectal excising the excess tissue and, simultaneously, the mucosa with metallic suture points and hemorrhoids are repositioned in his natural position. There is also a surgical procedure to cure hemorrhoids that does not involve the removal of tissue: dearterialization guided transanal hemorrhoidal doppler (THD method), a minimally invasive and virtually painless technique that involves locating, with a Doppler probe and suture the hemorrhoidal artery that carries blood to hemorrhoids. In the same operation, mucosal prolapse has been placed on your site. ...
Hemorrhoids, also known commonly as piles, are the dilation of a vein in the rectum or anus. This is a very common and painful condition that is usually caused by constipation, genetic predisposition, being too long standing, or associated with pregnancy. There are two variations of this pathology:external and internal hemorrhoids. The first generate protrusions on the ring on the outside of the anus, so they are easier to diagnose and cause pain when sitting, as well as traces of blood in stool. Treatment consists in applying creams and warm water in the affected area and in cases of severe pain, taking painkillers. On the other hand, internal hemorrhoids occur inside the anus, causing bleeding in the stool and itching in the anal region. If they grow, a surgical intervention may be necessary to remove. ...
Hiatal hernia is a condition that occurs when a portion of the stomach rises into the chest, through an opening located in the diaphragm, the wall that separates the chest from the abdomen. When the stomach moves into the chest, said gap loses its function and gastroesophageal reflux occurs, ie, the stomach contents back into the esophagus and irritate. The symptoms caused by this condition may be burning in the chest or throat, hoarseness, hoarseness, asthma or respiratory problems. The symptoms worsen after eating, during sleep or flex the trunk. Treatment for hiatal hernia depends on its severity, and sometimes does not require any type of therapy. In mild cases, the purpose is to control symptoms that improve with dietary measures and postural changes such as raising the head of the bed. In severe cases you can opt for the operation of a hiatal hernia, which is usually performed with the technique of fundoplication (minimally invasive laparoscopy). ...
Liver cancer is a disease in which the liver cells become abnormal and grow out of control form a cancerous tumor. This type of tumor is called primary liver cancer (malignant hepatoma or hepatocellular carcicoma). In contrast, metastatic liver cancer begins elsewhere and spreads to the liver. The liver is the largest organ in the body. Filters out harmful substances from the blood, digests fats from food and stores the sugar that the body needs for energy.

Obesity surgery, known as bariatric surgery, is the set of techniques to reduce the intake or food absorption capacity. Surgery is indicated for morbidly obese patients having a body mass index greater than 40kg / m2 or to those affected by severe obesity and associated diseases. Moreover, stomach surgery is performed through restrictive, malabsorptive or mixed media. The restrictive adjustable gastric banding (one ring placed around the entrance of the stomach which limits intake) gastrectomy (stomach reduction operation to remove 80 percent of its volume) and plicated tubular gastroplasty (included stomach operation that reduces the intake capacity by inward folding of the wall of the stomach itself). Malabsorptive techniques are duodenal (removal of much of the stomach joins the small intestine up to the duodenum to take half of it) and biliopancreatic diversion (halving junction of the stomach and small intestine). The combined procedure is the gastric bypass (leaving a small stomach and connected to the small intestine, using 60 percent of it). All these methods can be performed by open or laparoscopic surgery. ...
Pancreatic cancer is a disease that causes the formation of malignant cells in the tissues of the body that would produce juices that help digest food and hormones to control the amount of sugar in the blood. It is a very aggressive type of stomach cancer, overtaking at dangerous only colon cancer, lung cancer and breast cancer. Among risk factors include smoking, diabetes, chronic pancreatitis and some hereditary conditions. It is a disease whose early symptoms are quite subtle, so often diagnosed when it is in an advanced stage. Still, the loss of weight and appetite, fatigue, pain in the abdomen and back and jaundice may be warnings of this ailment. Treatment depends on the degree of involvement of the disease and if that affected only the pancreas, removal of malignant cells by surgery is possible, although it is very common to return to play. If the cancer is in an advanced stage, it can resort to chemotherapy or chemoradiation. Finally, if it has also spread to other parts of the body (eg causing stomach cancer or other organs) is well advanced and palliative treatments exist to slow the rate of disease progression. ...
